Near Field Communication (NFC) technology plays a crucial role for Tap to Pay, offering a convenient and secure way for you to receive contactless payment from your customers. Here’s how NFC works in the context of contactless payments:

  1. Initiation: When a customer taps their NFC-enabled device (smartphone or smartwatch) or contactless card near your NFC-enabled iPhone/Android device – the transaction process begins. Their device or contactless card acts as the initiator, sending out a radio frequency signal.
  2. Data Exchange: Your device, acting as the receiver, detects the signal from the customer’s device (or credit/debit card) and establishes a connection. This connection allows for the exchange of payment information between the two.
  3. Authentication: Once the connection is established, Our Tap to Pay functionality verifies with your customer’s device to authenticate the transaction. This authentication process verifies the legitimacy of the payment request and ensures that the transaction is authorized by the customer.
  4. Transaction Processing: After authentication, your device processes the transaction by securely transmitting the payment information to the relevant financial network or payment processor. This network verifies the transaction details, checks for available funds, and facilitates the transfer of funds from the customer to your associated account.
  5. Confirmation: Upon successful completion of the transaction, both the customer and you will receive notification of the transaction which you as the merchant will receive a “Approved” screen on the Bookipi app.

NFC makes Tap to Pay possible, allowing a quick and secure way to send and receive payment – making it a preferred option for payment transactions.
