Square, Tap to Pay on iPhone, FinTech, Square Point of Sale, Square for Retail, Square Appointments, Contactless Payments,  FranceSquare has launched Tap to Pay on iPhone in France, enabling merchants to accept contactless payments. Businesses can now use an iPhone to securely accept in-person payments with Apple’s Tap to Pay contactless payment technology on iPhone.

Available in the Square Point of Sale, Square for Retail, and Square Appointments iOS apps, Tap to Pay on iPhone lets merchants accept contactless payments directly from their iPhones without additional hardware or fees.

With Tap to Pay on iPhone, Square is making it easier for new merchants and established businesses to conduct in-person commerce. Any Square merchant with a compatible iPhone can accept contactless payments by simply opening the Point of Sale, Retail, or Appointments app. Then, they make a sale and present their iPhone to the customer.

The customer then completes the payment using a contactless payment method—like a credit card, Apple Pay, or other digital wallets—right on the seller’s iPhone, and the payment is securely processed using NFC technology.

Powered by Apple’s contactless payment technology, Square’s software delivers a seamless checkout experience that provides customers with all the information they need to complete their purchase.

Coming to millions of merchants in the U.S. in late 2022 and more recently launching in Canada and Japan, Tap to Pay on iPhone is already proving to be a valuable part of Square’s ecosystem.

“With Tap to Pay on iPhone, we are further levelling the playing field for businesses of all sizes to start, run, and grow their businesses,” said Saumil Mehta, Chief Product Officer at Square. “The French business landscape is competitive and tech-savvy, always looking for solutions that can make running a business more efficient. Tap to Pay on iPhone helps reduce some of the barriers to entry for new businesses and allows existing merchants to create new ways to sell with nothing more than their iPhone and Square software. They can set up in minutes and make sales in seconds.”
