Apple Apple has announced the launch of its Tap to Pay on iPhone service in the region of Canada to seamlessly and securely accept in-person, contactless payments.

Tap to Pay on iPhone makes it easy for businesses of any size to accept payments from contactless credit and debit cards, Apple Pay, and other digital wallets using only their iPhone and a partner-enabled iOS app — no additional hardware or payment terminal required.

“Canadians increasingly rely on a variety of digital and contactless payment options, so we’re excited to partner with payment platforms to offer merchants across Canada a private, secure, and easy-to-use capability that meets customers where they are,” said Jennifer Bailey, Apple’s vice president of Apple Pay Apple Wallet. ”

With Tap to Pay on iPhone, merchants can unlock contactless payment acceptance through a supporting iOS app on an iPhone Xs or later running the latest iOS version. At checkout, the merchant will prompt the customer to hold their contactless credit or debit card, iPhone, or Apple Watch, or other digital wallet near the merchant’s iPhone, and the payment will be securely completed using NFC technology.

Privacy is fundamental in the design and development across all of Apple’s payment features. With Tap to Pay on iPhone, customers’ payment data is protected by the same technology that makes Apple Pay private and secure. All transactions made using Tap to Pay on iPhone are encrypted and processed using the Secure Element, and as with Apple Pay, Apple doesn’t know what is being purchased or who is buying it.

“A focus on innovation and the customer journey is central to Sephora’s business, and delivering Tap to Pay on iPhone is another example of how Sephora is continuing to offer an elevated experience to our consumers,” said Stefan Jensen, Sephora’s vice president treasurer. “We’re thrilled to soon expand Tap to Pay on iPhone to our Canadian market after introducing it to our stores in the US. last year and seeing how the beauty community has embraced this new way to pay.”

Apple’s hardware, software, and services empower Canadian businesses of all sizes to manage their operations and connect directly with customers. At Apple Store locations, business owners can connect with Small Business Experts for advice and expertise, as well as flexible pricing and financing options.
