Contactless payments (e.g. Apple Pay or Google Pay) let you accept payments without your customer needing to touch your terminal keypad – they can simply place a contactless card or smartphone near the terminal to authorize the payment. Newer Verifone Vx520 terminals (those with four lights at the top of the terminal) and all First Data FD130/150 terminals can take contactless payments.
If you are not currently accepting contactless payments, it may be as simple as doing a quick terminal update to enable contactless payments. If you are not enabled for contactless payments and would like to be, please send an email to Dharma Support.
