Contactless Payments

Contactless Payments for Your Business 

Contactless payment technology allows your customers to simply “tap-to-pay” with their credit/debit card or smartphone at an enabled terminal.

By using NFC (near field communication) technology, chips embedded in the credit/debit card or mobile phone are able to communicate with the terminal and transmit payment data. 

Benefits of Contactless Payments

  • Security: Reduces the risk of fraud by using the same secure technology as EMV chip cards, encrypting the cardholder data and making it harder to steal.  
  • Efficiency: Provides a quick and efficient checkout experience by simply tapping the card or device on the enabled terminal. 
  • Convenience: Gives your customers the ability to pay with their preferred method. If they don’t have their credit card with them, they can simply pay with their mobile wallet on their smartphone or watch.

Wind River can enable your business to accept the following types of contactless payments

Mobile wallets are either a built-in feature or downloadable app that enable smartphone users to make purchases using their credit or debit card information they have stored on the device.  

Apple Watch, Samsung Galaxy Watch, FitBit and others all have built-in NFC and mobile wallet technology that allow for contactless payments.

Apple’s proprietary payment method is built into all their iPhones from the iPhone 6 onward as well as the Apple Watch. 

Samsung’s version of contactless payments can be found on newer versions Samsung Galaxy smartphones and smartwatches.

Google Pay is the contactless payment method designed by Google for Android phones and can be found on all of their newer devices.

All the major card brands now utilize credit and debit cards that enable contactless payments just by tapping the card on the terminal.
