Office Depot, Inc. (NASDAQ:ODP) , a leading global provider of office products, services, and solutions formed by the merger of Office Depot and OfficeMax, today announced that Office Depot store customers across the U.S. can now pay for their purchases via Apple Pay on their iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus and upcoming Apple Watch. Also early in 2015, Office Depot will integrate Apple Pay into its iOS app experience, for easy one-touch payment of in-app purchases on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3.

“With Apple Pay, we’re pleased to provide our Office Depot store customers with expanded check-out options that enhance the shopping experience with a quick, convenient and secure way to pay for purchases,” said Troy Rice, executive vice president, retail for Office Depot, Inc.

“The introduction of the latest mobile payment technology to our Office Depot stores is the latest example of our focus on continuous innovation to deliver a world-class customer shopping experience across our stores, websites and mobile shopping channels,” added Mark Cosby, president of North America at Office Depot, Inc.

Security and privacy is at the core of Apple Pay. When you add a credit or debit card with Apple Pay, the actual card numbers are not stored on the device nor on Apple servers. Instead, a unique Device Account Number is assigned, encrypted and securely stored in the Secure Element on your device. Each transaction is authorized with a one-time unique dynamic security code, instead of using the security code from the back of your card.
