With Tap to Pay on iPhone, merchants can seamlessly and securely accept in-person contactless payments, including contactless credit and debit cards, Apple Pay, and other digital wallets, using only an iPhone and the Worldline Tap on Mobile iOS app. No additional hardware or payment terminal is needed.

This technology breakthrough is another step for Worldline Tap on Mobile solution.

Tap to Pay on iPhone with the Worldline Tap on Mobile solution is easy, secure and private. At checkout, businesses will simply prompt their customers to hold their contactless Mastercard or Visa, their iPhone or Apple Watch to pay with Apple Pay, or other digital wallet near the business’ iPhone, and the payment will be securely completed using near-field communication (NFC) technology.

Apple’s Tap to Pay on iPhone technology uses the built-in features of iPhone to keep businesses’ and customers’ data private and secure. No cardholder data is stored on the device or on Apple servers. 

There are many ways Tap to Pay on iPhone can support a business with a smooth, simple and reliable payment solution, whatever their sector of activity. In addition to the convenience of providing simple payment acceptance anywhere, the solution offers many other opportunities to optimise their business operations through use cases like queue busting (to manage in-store traffic during peak times), payment on delivery or at the restaurant table, and much more.

“We are very proud to have enabled Tap to Pay on iPhone for our merchants across multiple countries. Having launched in Australia and the Netherlands earlier this year, we are now set to open a whole new chapter in the end-user journey at our large customers in France by giving them a flexible and secure way to accept payments with nothing more than an iPhone and Worldline Tap on Mobile iOS app.” said Marc-Henri Desportes, Deputy CEO of Worldline.

Tap to Pay on iPhone enables Worldline’s customers to use a payment solution that’s easy to set up and use.
