Apple today launched Tap to Pay on iPhone in Canada and Square is one of the first companies to launch, allowing Square sellers to be among the first businesses in the country to try the technology.

Available within the Square Point of Sale, Square for Retail, and Square Appointments iOS apps, Tap to Pay on iPhone lets sellers accept contactless payments directly from their iPhone with no additional hardware or payment terminal required and at no additional cost, making it a powerful free to enable option for entrepreneurs.

Through Tap to Pay on iPhone, Square is making it easier for both new sellers and established businesses to conduct in-person commerce. Any Square merchant with a compatible iPhone can accept contactless payments by simply opening the Square POS, Square for Retail, or Square Appointments app, adding the transaction, and presenting their iPhone to the buyer.

The buyer completes the payment by holding a contactless payment method such as a contactless credit or debit card, Apple Pay, or other digital wallet, near the seller’s iPhone.
