Revolut, Tap To Pay, Apple, Revolut Pro, Revolut Business, Contactless Payments, Revolut iOS App, FinTech, UKRevolut, the global financial super app, has enabled ‘Tap to Pay’ on iPhone contactless payment acceptance technology for Revolut Pro and Revolut Business customers across the UK.

With Tap to Pay on iPhone and the Revolut iOS app, customers will now be able to accept in-person, contactless payments without the need for additional terminals or hardware. The feature provides an easy way for merchants to accept payments from physical debit and credit cards, Apple Pay, and other digital wallets that enable contactless transactions.

For payments to be accepted, customers simply need to hold their contactless card or payment device near the merchant’s iPhone until the transaction is complete, just as with a traditional contactless payment terminal. Apple’s Tap to Pay on iPhone technology uses the built-in features of the iPhone to keep both business and customer data private and secure.

Revolut Pro and Business customers can start using Tap to Pay on iPhone directly within the Revolut app or the Business app. New customers wishing to use Tap to Pay on iPhone can do so by downloading the app using an iPhone XS or later running the latest iOS version. From there, they can sign up with a Pro or Business account directly within the app to start accepting contactless payments within minutes.

James Gibson, GM of Revolut Business said, “Since 2017, Revolut Business has been providing hundreds of thousands of business customers around the world with a comprehensive platform to manage business finances effectively. We are excited to be amongst the first to enable Tap to Pay on iPhone for our business customers in the UK and to be providing this simple and secure solution that offers greater flexibility for accepting payments. We are continuously expanding the benefits of the Revolut Business platform, and this is another great tool to support customers to do business seamlessly.”

Alex Codina, GM of Merchant Acquiring at Revolut said, “Our ambition in Merchant Acquiring is to provide customers with the products and services they need to accept payments in a secure and convenient manner. The launch of Tap to Pay on iPhone allows us to offer greater choices for both consumers and merchants in the UK. We expect to see all kinds of businesses, from retail stores to barbershops and food stands, quickly start accepting in-person contactless payments with only an iPhone.”
