Square has launched Tap to Pay on Android for sellers in Australia, enabling them to accept contactless payments easily and securely from a compatible Android device at no additional cost.
With Tap to Pay on Android, Square is making it easier for new sellers and established businesses to conduct in-person commerce. Using a compatible Android device, a seller simply opens the Square Point of Sale, Square Appointments, Square for Restaurants, or Square Invoices app, enters the sale, and presents their smartphone to the customer.
The buyer will see the total amount along with the contactless payments symbol, and can choose to complete the payment with a contactless credit or debit card, or a digital wallet such as Google Pay.
Square Point of Sale general manager, Alexis Sowa said, “Square’s goal is to make sure that our sellers, no matter where they are or who they are serving, never miss a sale. Our launch of Tap to Pay on Android brings a unique technology to millions of sellers globally, giving merchants a simple way to accept payments and access world-class, integrated software for their business.
“Even though Tap to Pay technology has only been available for a short time, the breadth of applications and use cases we’re seeing across our seller base already reinforce its staying power.”
