We have recently heard the news about Apple entering the Tap-On-Phone market. As more and more merchants and SME’s move away from cash, the use case of utilising your phone as a POS (Point of sale) device becomes extremely relevant and valuable for these businesses.

We have been asked on many occasions, what do we think about Apple offering this technology? We believe it is simply a fantastic way to know that Tap-On-Phone as a technology is something that is needed across the globe and has been acknowledged by one of the world’s biggest technology provider.

It is an opportunity for banks and payment service providers across the globe to engage with this new avenue to offer to their customers a full software card acceptance capability.

According to Statistica, Android maintain its position as the leading mobile operating system worldwide in January 2022, controlling the mobile OS market with a close to 70 percent share, while iOS accounted for around 25 percent of the mobile operating system market.

Android is thus a key OS for WIZZIT and we are pleased that our solution has been fully certified with PIN for Android OS 7.0 and above. Our solution also comes with a fully built payment switch making the integration to our partners extremely efficient and timely.

We truly believe that over the coming years, software over hardware will be the preference for not only the micro and SME merchant market for all businesses, to accept card payments.

It is clear that the adoption of this fast and convenient technology is paving the way to become the norm in future transactions.
