BNP Paribas brings Tap to Pay on iPhone to French retailers with payment scheme CB

  • BNP Paribas’ French retail clients can now use Apple’s contactless payment solution: Tap to Pay on iPhone with the Tap to Pay AXEPTA BNP Paribas application.
  • Tap to Pay on iPhone enables businesses large and small to seamlessly and securely accept in-person contactless payments with Apple contactless payments acceptance technology.
  • With BNP Paribas, Tap to Pay on iPhone is compatible with CB (Cartes Bancaires) as well as Visa and Mastercard.

Today, BNP Paribas introduces Tap to Pay on iPhone for its retail customers in France. Tap to Pay on iPhone enables businesses large and small to seamlessly and securely accept in-person contactless payments with Apple’s contactless payment acceptance technology.

Tap to Pay on iPhone accepts all forms of contactless payments, including contactless credit and debit cards, Apple Pay, and other digital wallets, using only an iPhone and the Axepta BNP Paribas app — no additional hardware or payment terminal needed.

Tap to Pay on iPhone enables customers to use a payment solution that is easy to set up and use. At checkout, the employee will prompt the customer hold their contactless credit or debit card, iPhone or Apple Watch, or other digital wallet near the employee's iPhone, and the payment will be securely completed. 

Tap to Pay on iPhone uses the built-in features of iPhone to keep the businesses’ and customers’ data private and secure. When a payment is processed, Apple doesn’t store card numbers on the device or on Apple servers. 

With BNP Paribas, Tap to Pay on iPhone is compatible with CB, a scheme that accounts for more than 65% of daily consumer payments in France, as well as Visa and Mastercard.
