SquareSquare has announced its launch of Tap-to-Pay on iPhone in Canada, allowing its sellers to have access to the technology in the country.

The solution is available within the Square Point of Sale, Square for Retail, and Square Appointments iOS apps. Tap to Pay on iPhone enables sellers to accept contactless payments directly from their iPhone with no additional hardware or payment terminal required and at no extra cost.

Through Tap-to-Pay on iPhone, Square aims to make it easier for both new sellers and established businesses to conduct in-person commerce. Any Square merchant with a compatible iPhone can accept contactless payments by opening the Square POS, Square for Retail, or Square Appointments app, adding the transaction, and then presenting their iPhone to the buyer. The buyer completes the payment by holding a contactless payment method such as a contactless credit or debit card, Apple Pay, or another digital wallet near the seller’s iPhone.

“With Tap to Pay on iPhone, we are further leveling the playing field for businesses of all sizes to be able to start, run and grow,” said Saumil Mehta, Head of Product at Square. “The Canadian business landscape is competitive and tech savvy, always on the lookout for solutions that can make operating their business more efficient. Tap To Pay on iPhone helps reduce some of the barriers to entry for new businesses and enables existing sellers to create new ways to sell with nothing more than their iPhone and Square’s software. They can get set up in minutes and begin making sales in seconds.”

Apple’s Tap to Pay on iPhone technology uses the built-in features of the iPhone to keep businesses’ and customers’ data private and secure. When a payment is processed, Apple doesn’t store card numbers on the device or Apple servers.

Powered by Square’s intuitive software, Tap to Pay on iPhone gives sellers a flexible, mobile solution that can adapt to any environment while meeting evolving consumer preferences for contactless payments. Together with Apple’s contactless payment technology, Square’s software creates a smooth, straightforward checkout experience that provides shoppers with all the information needed to help them complete their purchases with confidence.
