Secure payments. And nothing stored.

When using Tap to Pay on iPhone, all photo, video, screenshot and screen-recording features are paused on the merchant’s iPhone — so customers have peace of mind knowing their card number or PIN information won’t be recorded. Apps in the background are also momentarily blocked to prevent the tracking of digits while a customer enters their PIN information on the merchant’s iPhone.

Plus, myPOS ensures that myPOS Glass meets the highest industry standards and specifications for maximum functionality and safety. The app doesn’t keep sensitive cardholder data and complies with PCI DSS regulations.

Secure payments. And nothing stored.

Once the payment is approved, all funds are instantly deposited in your myPOS account.

It is possible that the card you’re accepting is not contactless. You should double-check this before proceeding to accept a payment. Simply find the contactless sign on the card and, if it’s visible, you’ll be able to accept the card with your myPOS Glass app. Also ensure that the card you’re accepting is a Visa, Mastercard or Amex card.

The performance of contactless cards can vary based on the card design, such as the card material or the location of the antenna. As a result, some cards connect more easily than others.

Try the following to ensure a successful card read:

  • First, ask the customer to hold their contactless payment card directly on the device with the chip on the left side and the longer side of the card lined up with the edge of the tap area for several seconds.
  • If the card still doesn't read, ask the customer to slide the card to center the chip directly over the notch on the device.
  • If the contactless card remains unread without any feedback from myPOS Glass, the card might have a damaged antenna or might not work with contactless payments. In this case, ask the customer for another contactless card or for a digital wallet.

You can send an electronic receipt to the customer by either emailing them or sending them their receipt via SMS. Choose the most convenient option for your customer and be accountable for each sale you make.

Tap to Pay on iPhone allows payment service providers to enable PIN-based transactions in iOS 16.0 and later.

After the customer taps their card, Tap to Pay on iPhone prompts the customer to enter their PIN using Apple's secure PIN entry interface.

Contactless cards have an EMV® Contactless Indicator on the back or the front of the card.

No. Tap to Pay on iPhone won't have a noticeable impact on battery life.

The Tap to Pay on iPhone Merchant ID uniquely identifies your business as a merchant that is able to accept payments through myPOS Glass. If you accept payments through multiple payment service providers, each provider will assign you a separate merchant ID.

Apart from accepting payments in the normal course of running your business, you will also be able to initiate refunds or void certain transactions. Just like a standard POS device, you can permit/forbid a refund or void, and even password-protect this functionality.

As a registered and licensed institution, we have the responsibility to ensure that we follow the correct onboarding procedures for new merchants. When signing up for the myPOS Glass app and in order for it to work properly, the app will ask you to enable access to three sets of data from your iPhone:

  • Photos, media & files: such data is required for accurate account identification and verification, especially if you do not have an account with myPOS yet.
  • Make & manage phone calls: this information is needed for proper account identification. In some cases, this will be necessary to initiate the process of online identification, especially in case where you do not have an account with myPOS yet.
  • Device location: this is used for the correct processing of payments. The myPOS service is bound and licensed within the EEA, and it is our responsibility to ensure that your device and scope of business operations fall within the borders of the EEA.
