Contactless payment acceptance technology makes it easier for Canadian businesses to get started and create new ways to sell

TORONTO: Today, Square launched Tap to Pay on iPhone in Canada, allowing Square sellers to be among the first businesses in the country to try the technology. Available within the Square Point of Sale, Square for Retail, and Square Appointments iOS apps, Tap to Pay on iPhone lets sellers accept contactless payments directly from their iPhone with no additional hardware or payment terminal required and at no additional cost, making it a powerful free to enable option for entrepreneurs.

Through Tap to Pay on iPhone, Square is making it easier for both new sellers and established businesses to conduct in-person commerce. Any Square merchant with a compatible iPhone can accept contactless payments by simply opening the Square POS, Square for Retail, or Square Appointments app, adding the transaction, and presenting their iPhone to the buyer. The buyer completes the payment by holding a contactless payment method such as a contactless credit or debit card, Apple Pay, or other digital wallet, near the seller’s iPhone.

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

Christian Linsley, hair stylist and owner of Only Child private studio in Saskatoon, SK, has been running their salon as a sole proprietor for almost two years and says feedback from customers has been overwhelmingly positive. “My clients and I are really enjoying Tap to Pay on iPhone. The convenience factor is amazing, especially since I sometimes work on-location. It's nice to be able to just pack up my phone and go — there’s no need to pack a bunch of cords or a separate machine.”

Powered by Square’s elegant, intuitive software, Tap to Pay on iPhone gives sellers a flexible, mobile solution that can adapt to any environment while meeting evolving consumer preferences for contactless payments. Together with Apple’s contactless payment technology, Square’s software creates a smooth, straightforward checkout experience that provides shoppers with all the information needed to help them complete their purchase with confidence.

Tap to Pay on iPhone is already proving to be a valuable part of Square’s ecosystem after becoming available to millions of sellers in the US in late 2022 and most recently in Australia and the United Kingdom. Since launching, sellers of all types and sizes have found new value in the ability to seamlessly and securely conduct business with no additional hardware:

  • Mobile professionals like tradespeople and caterers gained the ability to securely accept contactless payments onsite at their project location;
  • Retailers found new efficiency through line busting and the convenience of helping shoppers complete their purchase wherever they are in store;
  • Hairstylists and beauty professionals benefited from the speed and ease of enabling customers to pay for their services right from their chair.

“With Tap to Pay on iPhone, we are further levelling the playing field for businesses of all sizes to be able to start, run and grow,” said Saumil Mehta, Head of Product at Square. “The Canadian business landscape is competitive and tech savvy, always on the lookout for solutions that can make operating their business more efficient. Tap To Pay on iPhone helps reduce some of the barriers to entry for new businesses, and enables existing sellers to create new ways to sell with nothing more than their iPhone and Square’s software. They can get set up in minutes and begin making sales in seconds.”

Square sellers and new merchants can begin using Tap to Pay on iPhone today on an iPhone XS or later running the latest version of iOS, by downloading the Square POS, Square for Retail, or Square Appointments app from the Apple App Store.
