What is Tap on Phone?
You may not realise it, but you’ve got everything you need to take a card payment already in your hand. You can now use your phone to take contactless payments, with no additional hardware or fees.
With any compatible Android device*, your customers can simply tap their card or phone – just as they would with any other terminal. Which means you can go from downloading the Lopay app to taking your first payment in a matter of minutes, even if you’ve not got your free card reader yet.
How does it work?
Tap on Phone works by using Near Field Communication (NFC) to process payments. Just set your phone up as a payment device in the Lopay app, and you’ll be able to use it in the same way as you would a card reader.
Payments are made even faster as the NFC detector is shown on your phone, meaning customers simply tap their device or card on the highlighted area. You’ll just need an active data signal or WiFi connection for this to work.
Tap on Phone is great for on-the-go businesses. Whether you’re a personal trainer or a roaming vendor, you can now run your business from the palm of your hand without fumbling around for a terminal.
