Yesterday at WWDC, Apple announced that it will be launching Tap to Pay on iPhone this month, allowing small merchants and independent merchants in the United States to use their “iPhone” as a payment terminal.


Announced in February, this feature allows compatible iPhones to accept payments via Apple Pay, contactless credit and debit cards, and other digital wallets, using just one ‌iPhone‌.

Tap to pay on iPhone‌ is supported with the ‌iPhone‌ XS or later, and works for customers like any regular ‌Apple Pay‌ transaction. Tap to pay on ‌iPhone‌ uses NFC technology to securely verify and complete a purchase.

Apple has partnered with several partners for Tap to Pay on ‌iPhone‌, including Square, Stripe, GoDaddy, Chase, and more. Apple started testing the feature at the Apple Park Visitor Center last month and has rolled it out to Apple retail stores.
