Today, Wix announced an “extended partnership with Stripe” to enable its customers to use Apple’s Tap to Pay feature for merchants in the U.S.
Wix users that have the Wix Owner app will be able to access the feature there and allow in-person contactless payments as long as the owner is using an iPhone. The customer can use either their iPhone or Apple Watch with Apple Pay or Apple Card, or a credit or debit card that has contactless functionality embedded.
Amit Sagiv and Volodymyr Tsukur, co-heads of Wix Payments, said adding the ability is something that will be convenient and safe for Wix users and their customers.
“We’re constantly evolving our solutions to help users efficiently grow both their online and offline sales,” they said. “Tap to Pay on iPhone offers merchants a reliable and secure payment option to increase customer touchpoints and deliver new in-person experiences, ultimately optimizing their multichannel strategy and increasing the monetization of their offline sales. Our partnership with Stripe gives merchants the ultimate flexibility to sell anytime, anywhere – whether in-store or on the go, at their own convenience to never miss a sale.”
