Developers of the Square and Cash App, Block, have added support for Apple’s Tap to Pay for iPhone functionality. Users of the financial management software offered by the fintech company Square, as well as those looking to switch to Square, can now use their iPhones to accept payments.
According to the business founded by Jack Dorsey, store owners can simply launch the Square POS software, start a transaction, and offer the iPhone to consumers for payment. In June, Block began testing a new function for business owners. Apple’s Tap to Pay on iPhones is now available at all locations across the United States.
Square’s head of financial services, David Talach, issued a prepared statement in which he said the company is committed to providing merchants of all sizes with the tools they need to “delight their customers and never miss a sale” as the pace of commerce continues to quicken and contactless adoption in the United States rises. There is no longer any need for a separate payments device thanks to Apple’s Tap to Pay on iPhone, allowing merchants to start accepting payments in minutes. Transactions can be processed in seconds.
It is worth noting that before implementing this technology, businesses had to purchase hardware from Square in order to begin receiving payments from clients via various channels, such as credit cards. They may avoid buying extra equipment because Apple Pay is already built in.
In February was introduced Apple’s Tap to Pay on the iPhone, and Stripe was one of the launch partners. There was an announcement at the time that users may pay with Apple Pay or contactless credit or debit cards from networks like American Express, Discover, Mastercard, and Visa.
With the iOS 15.4 release in March, Apple formally introduced the capability for iPhones to be used as payment terminals for merchants.
