How Tap on Phone Works
Tap on Mobile functionality relies on the NFC (Near Field Communications) capability of compatible iPhone and Android devices to securely read information from Contactless Cards.
NFC is a set of short-range wireless technologies, typically requiring a distance of 4cm or less to initiate a connection. NFC allows compatible iPhone and Android devices to securely share small payloads of data with a Contactless payment card or another NFC capable device.
The card being used for payment has to be a Contactless payment card or loaded into a digital wallet such as Apple Pay or Google Pay, in order for the card to be able to interact with the mobile device via NFC.
