Apple has announced the launch of Tap to Pay on iPhone in France.

The new capability will empower millions of merchants, from small businesses to large retailers, to use their iPhone to seamlessly and securely accept Apple Pay, contactless credit and debit cards, and other digital wallets using only their iPhone and a partner-enabled iOS app — no additional hardware or payment terminal needed.

The Tap to Pay service on iPhone is available to payment platforms and app developers in France, who can integrate it into their iOS apps and offer it as a payment acceptance option to their business customers. The BPCE Group (Banques Populaires, Caisses d'Epargne and Payplug) and the companies Adyen, myPOS, Revolut, SumUp, Viva Wallet and Worldline now offer Tap to Pay on iPhone to their French professional customers, and they will soon be joined by BNP Paribas , Crédit Coopératif, Market Pay, Stancer and Stripe.

From today, Tap to Pay on iPhone is available in all Apple Stores in France, and is being deployed in numerous points of sale, notably those of the Christian Dior Couture brands, belonging to the LVMH group, Dyson, Rituals and Sézane. L'Addition has integrated Tap to Pay on iPhone into its POS system used by thousands of restaurants in France. Sephora, which also belongs to the LVMH group, will deploy Tap to Pay on iPhone in the coming weeks in its stores in France.

"We are very excited to offer Tap to Pay on iPhone to merchants across France, so they have a simple, secure and confidential way to accept contactless payments with the power, security and usability of iPhone," said Jennifer Bailey, Apple's vice president of Apple Pay and Apple Wallet. "With over 90% of bank cards in France equipped with contactless technology, and the growing adoption of contactless payments, merchants will be able to accept payments from their customers with a simple tap on their iPhone."

Tap to Pay on iPhone will be compatible with contactless bank cards from major payment networks, including American Express, Discover, Mastercard and Visa. Apple is working with payment platforms to enable support, in the coming weeks, for CB (Cartes Bancaires), the most used payment method in the country.
