Square, Android Devices, sellers, credit card, contactless payments, digital wallet, smartphone, FinTech news, FinTech USSquare launched Tap to Pay on Android for sellers across Canada. The new technology enables businesses to securely accept credit card contactless payments with a compatible Android device, at no additional cost.

With Tap to Pay on Android, Square is making it even easier for new sellers and established businesses to conduct in-person commerce, including the ability for larger or more complex businesses to take payments away from their counter, or on the move.

“Square’s goal is to make sure that our sellers, no matter where they are or who they are serving, never miss a sale,” said Alexis Sowa, General Manager of Square Point of Sale. “Our launch of Tap to Pay on Android brings to Canada a unique technology that will benefit millions of sellers globally, giving merchants a simple way to accept payments and access world-class, integrated software for their business. Even though Tap to Pay technology has only been available for a short time, the breadth of applications and use cases we’re seeing across our seller base already reinforce its staying power.”

Using a compatible Android device, a seller simply opens a Square point-of-sale app, enters the sale and presents their smartphone to the customer. From there, the buyer will see the total they owe along with the familiar contactless payments symbol, and can choose to complete the payment with a contactless credit card, or a credit card within a digital wallet such as Google Pay.

Tap to Pay on Android is powered by Square’s elegant, intuitive software that gives businesses a flexible, mobile solution and meets consumers’ growing preferences for contactless payments. Square’s software also benefits consumers by offering them a smooth and straightforward checkout experience, enabling them to see all the information needed to help them complete their purchase with confidence.
