PayPal lets merchants in the UK, Sweden and the Netherlands accept contactless payments on NFC smartphones

10 mai 2022

Merchants in the UK, Sweden and the Netherlands can now accept contactless payments on a standard Android NFC smartphone or other mobile device using a software point of sale (sPOS) solution being rolled out by PayPal. PayPal says it plans to launch the solution in other markets “in the near future”, according to NFCW.

To use Tap to Pay with Zettle, merchants download PayPal’s Zettle Go application on their Android device and sign up for the service through the app or directly from a PayPal business account.

They can then begin accepting contactless payments made with a physical credit or debit card or via a mobile wallet.

Once a payment is approved, the merchant can opt to print, email or text a receipt to the customer.

„Dupa ce oamenii creeaza un cont PayByFace si au adaugat cardul, selfi-ul si PIN-ul, si au avut un pic de curaj sa se duca sa incerce, daca au incercat o data plata prin recunoastere faciala nu mai folosesc altceva (n.r. ca modalitate de plata). 80% dintre ei numai asta folosesc. Le place la nebunie.”
