In February Apple announced plans to introduce Tap to Pay on iPhone, saying the new capability will empower millions of merchants across the U.S. to use their iPhone to accept Apple Pay, contactless credit and debit cards, and other digital wallets through a simple tap to their iPhone. Now Square has announced that it’s working with Apple to enable the functionality within the Square Point of Sale app.
Apple said Tap to Pay on iPhone will be available for payment platforms and app developers to integrate into their iOS apps and offer as a payment option to their business customers. Stripe will be the first payment platform to offer Tap to Pay on iPhone to their business customers, including the Shopify Point of Sale app this spring. Additional payment platforms and apps will follow later this year.
Square says that Tap to Pay on iPhone provides sellers with a simple solution to accept contactless payments with no additional hardware, and integrates with Square’s broader ecosystem of tools built to help them start, run, and grow their business. Using just the Square POS app and an iPhone, sellers will be able to securely take contactless payments with Tap to Pay on iPhone.
Space in Square’s Early Access Program for Tap to Pay on iPhone is limited. Square sellers and new merchants interested in learning about Square’s Early Access Program for Tap to Pay on iPhone can visit squareup.com/get/tap-to-pay for more information.
