All new terminals that Dharma sells are Apple Pay compatible, and are also compatible with other NFC (Near-Field-Communication) devices. That means Google Wallet too! This feature is turned on automatically on all new Verifone and First Data terminals, and you don’t need to do anything special to start using it. Just run a payment like normal, and instead of swiping the card, place the Android Phone/iPhone/Apple Watch over the terminal and allow the customer to complete the transaction through their device.
Apple is aiming to replace the wallet with Apple Pay, and the one-step process prevents people from needing to dig through a purse or wallet to find credit cards. As it is built on existing NFC technology, Apple Pay will work anywhere NFC-based contactless payments are accepted.
