The Tap-to-Pay service is now available for businesses in the Netherlands.
Apple launched Tap to Pay in the US in 2022, and then rolled it out in the UK and Australia. The service has recently been taken over by two companies in the Netherlands and it is expected that more will do the same.
iCulture.ni reported that SumUp and Adyen support Tap-to-Pay in the region. SumUp is a company that sells card readers, while Adyen already offers tap-to-pay support in the US. Other major payment-related companies adapting the service include Klearly, Stripe, myPOS, Rabobank, and Revolut. Additionally, the publication claims that Tap to Pay will be available in Apple Stores in the Netherlands.
Businesses can use Tap to Pay, which works similar to Apple Pay. The contactless payment platform uses an iPhone instead of special hardware to accept payments from a customer’s iPhone.
