Nexi, Stripe, Adyen launch Apple’s Tap to Pay service in Italy

30 mai 2024

Payments companies Nexi, Stripe and Adyen have started offering businesses in Italy a way to accept payments from customers that relies on Apple’s iPhones, according to Reuters. Apple’s Tap to Pay service uses a wireless technology known as near-field communication (NFC) which allows the exchange of data between devices over a short distance.

Nexi, the European PayTech, now enables merchants in Italy to accept in-person contactless payments seamlessly and securely with Tap to Pay on iPhone, and „will continue to expand the availability of Tap to Pay on iPhone to its customers in Europe where the service is available” – according to the press release.

Tap to Pay on iPhone allows merchants to accept all forms of contactless payments, including contactless credit and debit cards, Apple Pay, and other digital wallets, using only an iPhone and the Nexi SoftPOS app, with no additional hardware or payment terminal needed.

At checkout, the merchant will simply prompt the customer to hold their cards, their iPhone, or Apple Watch to pay with their contactless credit or debit card, Apple Pay, or other digital wallet near the merchant’s iPhone, and the payment will be securely completed using NFC technology. Tap to Pay on iPhone also supports PIN entry, which includes accessibility options.

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

„As well as providing an affordable, simple, and safe way to accept digital payments, Nexi’s SoftPOS solution allows merchants to manage transactions in real time and easily send receipts providing merchants with increased flexibility and mobility. The solution enables the secure and simple processing of cashless payments at a mobile point of sale where the payment can take place from Apple devices exactly where the customer is without being limited by where the cash register is placed.” the company explained.

Enabling Nexi SoftPOS also on Apple devices provides Italian merchants with more flexibility and choice, resulting in an easier shopping experience for consumers and creating additional revenue opportunities to grow their business.” – comments Roberto Catanzaro, Chief Business Officer of Merchant Solutions at Nexi.

Tap to Pay on iPhone enables Nexi customers to use a contactless payment acceptance solution that is easy to set up and use. Merchants will be able to unlock contactless payment acceptance through the Nexi SoftPOS on an iPhone XS or later running the latest version of iOS and can simply download the Nexi App from the Apple App Store to start accepting contactless payments within minutes.
