The move is part of the organisation’s wider ambition to simplify in-person commerce for US-based merchants.
The update will enable Wix merchants to now be able to accept secure, contactless payments directly from their Android devices without the need for additional hardware, following the firm’s recent release of Tap to Pay on Apple’s iPhone products.
“Our expanded partnership with Stripe enables merchants to turn their Android devices into a POS terminal so they can readily embrace the future of contactless payments,” said Amit Sagiv and Volodymyr Tsukur, co-heads of Wix Payments. “This launch is another step in our commitment to providing our merchants with the best tools to succeed online and offline, streamline their operations, and efficiently serve their customers.”
The Wix Owner App turns any compatible Android device into a Point-of-Sale (POS) terminal. By leveraging Wix’s advanced and secure POS software, merchants are able to conduct in-person commerce anywhere, anytime, giving their customers a simple, contactless checkout experience.
Users can use credit cards, debit cards, Google Pay, and other digital wallets to complete the purchases of their desired products with confidence and ease.
John Affaki, Terminal Business Lead at Stripe, said: “Stripe’s Tap to Pay on Android product has facilitated contactless payments for millions of businesses around the world.
“We’re excited to partner with Wix to provide this easy, cost-effective, no-code way to accept payments in more entrepreneurs’ pockets.”
Tap to Pay on Android is available on compatible devices to US-based Wix Payments merchants using Wix for eCommerce, bookings and events solutions.
