Square integrates Apple's Tap to Pay on iPhone for its merchants

Monday 6 June 2022 09:49 CET | News

US-based payments platform Square has enabled its merchants to accept payments on its app through Tap to pay on an iPhone.

Square is working with Apple to enable Tap to Pay on iPhone for its sellers so they can accept contactless payments using Square's Point of Sale app on compatible iPhones.

Apple introduced Tap to Pay in February 2022, inviting developers to integrate the feature into their iOS apps. Stripe is the first payment platform to use the functionality, opening it up to Shopify sellers. AmEx, Discover, Mastercard, and Visa contactless cards also work with the new system.

Square’s officials stated that bringing Tap to Pay on iPhone into the Square ecosystem ensures that new sellers will have another free option to get up and running while providing businesses of any complexity with more flexibility to adapt their commerce experiences to evolving customer preferences and industry standards.

Tap to Pay transactions are encrypted and protected using Secure Element. The system works on any iPhone from the iPhone XS onward and accepts Apple Pay, contactless credit and debit cards, and other digital wallets through a simple tap on an iPhone.
