Get started with Tap to Pay on iPhone

  1. Open the WooCommerce Mobile App on a compatible iPhone and open Menu then Payments.
  1. Tap on Collect Payment and then select Tap to Pay on iPhone when you are ready to take the payment.

If this is the first time you are using Tap to Pay on iPhone, you will be prompted to continue with your current Apple ID or select a different one and accept Apple’s Terms of Service. Use the same Apple ID that is tied to your business account, if you have a different personal account.

  1. Present the iPhone to the customer.
  1. The customer holds their contactless card horizontally or hovers their device at the top of the iPhone, over the contactless symbol.
  1. When you see the “done” checkmark, the card has been read. Wait for the transaction to process, then the app will show that the payment was successful or if there were any issues with the transaction.

Requires iPhone XS or later with iOS 16.0 or later.
