The Tap to Phone service is aimed as a solution for low-cost acceptance for merchants especially as Pakistani consumers are increasingly indicating a preference to pay with digital payments over cash and 4 out of 5 consumers surveyed said they’d switch stores based on the payment methods offered . According to Visa’s 2021 Small Business recovery study, 79% of Pakistani SMEs saw digital payments as an important investment in business recovery.

When the Tap to Phone feature is enabled, merchants can quickly start accepting contactless payments as long as they have a smartphone running on the Android 7 platform or above, which is equipped with a near-field communications (NFC) chip and download the Tap to Phone application. Customers can then tap their contactless payment card or payment-enabled smartphone against the seller’s Tap to Phone-enabled device to make a payment.
