Adyen Enables Tap to Pay on iPhone for Businesses to Accept Contactless Payments in Canada

TORONTO (May 23, 2024) – Today, Adyen (AMS: ADYEN), the global financial technology platform of choice for leading businesses, now enables Canadian businesses to seamlessly and securely accept in-person contactless payments with Tap to Pay on iPhone. Tap to Pay on iPhone accepts all forms of contactless payments, including contactless credit and debit cards, Apple Pay, and other digital wallets, using only an iPhone and a supported iOS app -  no additional hardware or payment terminal is needed.

By partnering with prominent retailers for the launch including Mackage via NewStore. Mackage can now accept contactless payments from consumers using only an iPhone, providing an added level of convenience. Mackage shoppers can experience Tap to Pay on iPhone at all stores across Canada, where they can “check out” without having to wait in line at the cashier. Shoppers now have access to a fast, efficient, and easy shopping experience at their fingertips.  

“We are thrilled that Mackage is one of the groundbreaking Canadian retailers to enable Tap to Pay on iPhone with Adyen,” said David Turcotte, Senior IT Manager for Mackage. “As consumers increase their use of digital wallets, Tap to Pay on iPhone provides a secure and contactless payment acceptance option which ensures our customers will have a seamless checkout experience. Our customers expect an elevated in-store experience and we are confident that the ease and convenience of  Adyen’s new payment acceptance option at Mackage will resonate with both current and new shoppers.”

Using Tap to Pay on iPhone is easy, secure, and private. With Tap to Pay on iPhone, businesses of all kinds can simply prompt consumers to hold their contactless payment method near the transacting iPhone, and the payment will be securely completed using NFC technology.

"The introduction of Tap to Pay on iPhone in Canada marks a pivotal moment for the customer experience and how they see contactless payments,” says Sander Meijers, Adyen Country Manager for Canada. “Adyen is always on top of the emerging trends that allow us to provide the best shopping experience possible, and bringing Tap to Pay on iPhone to our stores in Canada is a great example of that. This new feature boosts transaction convenience for Canadian customers and businesses while upholding Adyen's performance on all fronts. We are excited to empower Canadian businesses to offer enhanced choice and flexibility to their customers.”

Apple’s Tap to Pay on iPhone technology uses the built-in features of iPhone to keep the merchants’ and customers’ data private and secure. When a payment is processed, Apple doesn’t store cards or transaction information on the device or on Apple servers. Tap to Pay on iPhone will enable Adyen’s customers to stay at the forefront of innovation by:

  • Simplifying in-person payments by removing the dependence on payment hardware to accept transactions, providing safe and fast checkout experiences that increase mobility on location and on the go.  

  • Getting up and running quickly with installation and onboarding, allowing businesses to scale up their payment operation.

  • Providing secure and fast checkout experiences that increases mobility on location.

  • Allowing for a convenient and private way to pay for customers since transactions are encrypted and payment data is protected by the same technology that makes Apple Pay private and secure.
