Westpac enables Tap to Pay on iPhone for seamless contactless payments

Westpac announced it has enabled Apple’s Tap to Pay on iPhone contactless payment technology, a new, easy, secure payment option for business customers.


- Tap to Pay on iPhone accepts all contactless payments, including Apple Pay, contactless credit and debit cards and other digital wallets using only an iPhone and Westpac’s EFTPOS Air iOS app, removing the need for additional hardware or payment terminals.

- Using Tap to Pay in the EFTPOS Air app, merchants will prompt the customer to hold their contactless payment near the merchant’s iPhone at checkout, and the payment will be securely completed using NFC technology.

- Tap to Pay on iPhone also supports PIN entry, which includes accessibility options.

What does this mean?

Chris de Bruin, Chief Executive, Consumer and Business Banking Westpac, said, “We are delighted to offer businesses another flexible and fast payment option with Tap to Pay on iPhone. Our business customers can be onboarded and start accepting quick and secure payments on the go within minutes, using only an iPhone and the Westpac EFTPOS Air iOS app.’’
