Available now, US small businesses can accept in-person, contactless payments simply by using iPhone and an Autobooks-enabled mobile banking app
Autobooks is excited to bring Tap to Pay on iPhone to your mobile banking app. This new capability will empower your small business customers to use their iPhone to seamlessly and securely accept contactless debit cards and credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover) as well as Apple Pay and other digital wallets, through a simple tap to their iPhone — without the need for additional hardware or payment terminals.
Like the Autobooks online invoicing and digital payment acceptance tools, Tap to Pay on iPhone is available as a standard feature inside mobile banking. Any small business customer with a compatible iPhone can accept contactless payments from virtually anywhere they do business by simply opening their financial institution’s mobile banking app, entering the amount to be paid, and presenting their iPhone to the buyer. The buyer pays by holding their card or device at the top of the presented iPhone, over the contactless symbol. The transaction will be completed using NFC technology.
Privacy is a fundamental aspect of Tap to Pay on iPhone — customers’ payment data is protected by the same technology that makes Apple Pay private and secure. All transactions made using Tap to Pay on iPhone are fully encrypted and processed, meaning that Apple doesn’t know what is being purchased or who is buying.
Business customers can accept all types of in-person, contactless payments right on their iPhone with Tap to Pay on iPhone.
