Once you have entered the amount you want to charge the customer and have presented your phone to them, they can either tap their card or smart device on your device to complete the sale.

The customer will not need to enter a PIN number unless the sum is larger than the contactless limit. If the customer is required to enter their PIN, they can do so by securely typing it into your device.

Our Tap to Pay technology has been built to the highest security standards and is Payment Card Industry certified. Transactions are dynamically encrypted and protected with the same security technology with EMV® chip cards. Your customer’s card number and PIN are securely processed and never stored on the device, the same as a physical payment terminal. This means your customers, and your business, are always protected.
