Accept in-person contactless payments

Tap to Pay is currently available in the U.S. To get started, download the Woo Mobile App and start accepting contactless debit and credit cards, Apple Pay, and other digital wallet payments on your iPhone or Android. Tap to Pay uses the built-in security features of your phone to keep your business and customer data private and secure.

No additional hardware required

No need to buy, set up, or manage new card readers. All you need is an iPhone XS or newer for iPhones.

Android phones require Android 10 or later, an “unrooted” device with a locked and unchanged bootloader using Google Mobile Services, with an NFC antenna and chipset, and with a hardware backed keystore.

Quick to get started

Setup requires only a few simple steps for iPhone or Android.

Secure and private

Tap to Pay on iPhone uses the built-in features of iPhone to keep your business and your customer data private and secure. When a payment is processed, Apple does not store card numbers on the device or on Apple servers, so you can rest assured knowing your business stays yours.

On Android phones, be sure the device is not “rooted”, the device bootloader is locked and unchanged, and it has a hardware-backed keystore to keep data secure.

Get started with Tap to Pay

  1. Open the Woo Mobile App on a compatible iPhone or Android phone and open Orders then create an order.
  1. Tap on Collect Payment and then select Tap to Pay on iPhone or Tap to Pay on Android 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 phone to the customer.
  1. The customer holds their contactless card horizontally or hovers their device at the top of the phone, 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.

IPhone devices require iPhone XS or later running iOS 16.0 or later. Android devices require Android 10 or later, a functioning NFC antenna and chipset, an “unrooted” device that uses Google Mobile Services, and a hardware-backed keystore.
