To make a payment, customers simply need to hold their contactless card or payment device near the merchant's iPhone until the transaction is completed, mirroring the experience of a traditional contactless payment terminal.

They can easily sign up for a Revolut Pro or Revolut Business account within the app and begin accepting contactless payments within minutes.
