By Gloria Methri
Global FinTech SumUp has announced that Tap to Pay on iPhone is now available for its customers in the UK and the Netherlands.
Using Tap to Pay on iPhone, SumUp merchants can now securely accept all forms of contactless payments, including Apple Pay, contactless credit and debit cards, and other digital wallets, using only an iPhone and the SumUp iOS app.
The availability of this feature means that SumUp merchants can accept contactless payments anywhere if they have an iPhone and the SumUp iOS app. Tap to Pay on iPhone is useful for nano merchants as they look to scale their business and consider payment solutions, alongside other business tools.
Giovanni Barbieri, SumUp’s Senior Strategic Growth Manager, said, “SumUp is pleased to announce the availability of Tap to Pay on iPhone. Our mission is to make business simple for our merchants and this roll-out is an extension of our existing work supporting SMEs and merchants of all sizes to get paid. Importantly, Tap to Pay on iPhone is easy, secure, and private, protecting both sides of the transaction. I am especially pleased with the exceptional functionality of the product and the fact it lowers barriers to entry, with the potential to fuel entrepreneurship.”
Additionally, Tap to Pay on iPhone can also be used as a complementary product to card readers and point-of-sale systems.
Tap to Pay on iPhone is the second Apple and SumUp integration since 2021. Using the built-in features of the iPhone keeps businesses and customers’ data private and secure. The Tap to Pay feature accepts all forms of contactless payments, including contactless credit and debit cards, Apple Pay, and other digital wallets. Tap to Pay on iPhone will appear as a payment method in the SumUp app.
