Dutch web-based portal iCulture.ni shared the news today, noting that companies like Adyen and SumUp are the first to support the service. Other companies are expected to join the service soon, including Rabobank, Klearly, Revolut, Stripe, Viva Wallet, Worldline, and myPOS.
Using the NFC chip in the device, the feature allows merchants to accept payments by simply using their iPhones without the need for additional card readers. It is compatible with Apple Pay, digital wallets, and contactless credit or debit cards. Nonetheless, it is important to note that Tap to Pay on iPhone requires iPhone XS or newer models. The feature is also available in the US, benefitting hundreds of thousands of businesses, including Apple Stores.
The rollout of Tap to Pay follows the arrival of the service in the UK, supported by companies like Revolut, Tyl by NatWest, Adyen, Dojo, myPOS, Stripe, SumUp, Viva Wallet, Worldline, and Zettle by PayPal. Since July, Apple has also expanded its Apple Pay service to Morocco, Vietnam, and Chile.
