21 August 2023, Darwin, Australia — the job management app for trade contractors & service businesses, ServiceM8, is thrilled to introduce support for Tap to Pay on iPhone in Australia and the United States, available in the ServiceM8 iOS app from today.
With Tap to Pay on iPhone, trade contractors and service technicians can now accept in-person, contactless payments with only an iPhone and the ServiceM8 app — from clients using contactless debit and credit cards, to Apple Pay and other digital wallets. No extra terminals or hardware is required.
“Tap to Pay on iPhone is huge for tradies & service contractors. Our sector will greatly benefit from this technology — being able to take payments on the spot, anywhere, will transform every contractor’s cashflow and absolutely delight their clients” said ServiceM8 CEO, Ben Ford.
Using Tap to Pay on iPhone, contractors can now finalise an invoice on site with the ServiceM8 app, and simply ask their client to hold their contactless card or digital wallet near their iPhone to securely process the payment. Tap to Pay supports Apple Pay on iPhone or Apple Watch, contactless debit and credit cards, and other digital wallets that support contactless transactions. Processing is powered by Stripe, a world-leading payment service provider.
CEO Ben Ford believes Tap to Pay on iPhone will make a big impact when it comes to how consumers think about paying contractors: “You wouldn’t walk out of the shop without paying for your groceries — so why should tradies be pressured to stick to this outdated convention of doing work on good faith, and waiting days or weeks to get paid? Tap to Pay on iPhone is a massive leap forward in this conversation, giving technicians the ability to take contactless payment on site, immediately, while offering their clients an easy, secure experience”.
Tap to Pay on iPhone is now available for ServiceM8 customers to enable in the ServiceM8 app from the Apple App Store. Tap to Pay on iPhone requires an iPhone XS or later running the latest iOS version, and a Stripe account to get started within minutes.
