Introducing ‘Tap to Pay’- Turn Your Smartphone to a POS Terminal

Imagine turning your smartphone into a Point of Sale (POS) terminal, seamlessly receiving payments from your customers with just a tap of their card. This is the power of Swwipe's ‘Tap to Pay’ feature.

What is ‘Tap to Pay’?

The ‘Tap to Pay’ is a secure payment method that allows businesses to receive payments from their customers with a simple tap of the customer's NFC- enabled card on a NFC-enabled mobile device. This technology enables quick, contactless payments, making it faster and more convenient for both customers and businesses. The card information is transmitted wirelessly through the NFC (Near Field Communication) technology, and the transaction is processed swiftly, eliminating the need for physical card insertion.

It's important to note that the NFC technology, which powers the Tap to Pay feature, is available on Android phones and not on iPhones. However, for those with iPhones, Swwipe offers a range of other payment options, including Pinpad, Bank Transfers, USSD, and Payment gateway.

To use the ‘Tap to pay’ feature, make sure you have the following;

  • NFC-enabled smartphone.
  • NFC-enabled debit/credit card (customer’s card)
  • The Swwipe Mobile App (available on Google Playstore and Apple AppStore).

Let's break down the process step-by-step:

  • Activate NFC in your phone settings
  • Check compatibility on the login page
  • Log in to your Swwipe account. 
  • Enter the payment amount and select 'Tap-to-pay’
  • Ask your customer to tap their bank card on the back of your phone
  • The customer reviews the transaction and input their PIN securely
  • Your wallet gets credited after a successful transaction

The ‘Tap to Pay’ solves numerous challenges businesses face:

You don't need to invest in expensive POS terminals. Your smartphone becomes your payment terminal.

Transactions are quicker, smoother, and more efficient, reducing wait times for your customers.

The system is secure, with customers inputting their PIN for added protection.

With the ‘Tap to Pay’ feature, we are simplifying the way businesses receive payments. The Tap to Pay option makes it easier and faster to process transactions, improving your efficiency and customer satisfaction.
