Nexi now enables merchants in Italy to accept in-person contactless payments securely with Tap to Pay on iPhone. This will continue to expand the availability of Tap to Pay on iPhone to its customers in Europe where the service is available.

Tap to Pay on iPhone allows merchants to accept all forms of contactless payments, including contactless credit and debit cards, Apple Pay, and other digital wallets, using only an iPhone and the Nexi SoftPOS app, with no additional hardware or payment terminal needed.

At checkout, the merchant will simply prompt the customer to hold their cards, their iPhone, or Apple Watch to pay with their contactless credit or debit card, Apple Pay, or other digital wallet near the merchant’s iPhone, and the payment will be securely completed using NFC technology. Tap to Pay on iPhone also supports PIN entry, which includes accessibility options.

Apple’s Tap to Pay on iPhone technology uses the built-in features of iPhone to keep the business and customers’ data private and secure. When a payment is processed, Apple doesn’t store card numbers on the device or on Apple servers.

Nexi’s SoftPOS offers increased flexibility and mobility

As well as providing an affordable, simple, and safe way to accept digital payments, Nexi’s SoftPOS solution allows merchants to manage transactions in real time and easily send receipts providing merchants with increased flexibility and mobility.

Roberto Catanzaro, Chief Business Officer of Merchant Solutions at Nexi, said: “Enabling Nexi SoftPOS also on Apple devices provides Italian merchants with more flexibility and choice, resulting in an easier shopping experience for consumers and creating additional revenue opportunities to grow their business. With this expanded mobile offering, we are taking another step toward increasing the adoption of digital payments in Italy and further afield, as we look to help merchants and consumers across Europe benefit from more convenient payment options”.
