Dapio launches nifty Tap to Pay app

UK pay-tech firm Dapio has launched its app turning Android smartphones into card readers without extra hardware for small businesses and sellers across the UK.

Dapio helps small businesses safely, and securely accept contactless card and e-wallet payments, with just one tap on the back of any NFC-enabled Android phone. No extra hardware required. Dapio Tap to Pay is also available for partners to integrate into their own Android applications as a new payment option for their business customers.

Kosta Du, Dapio’s CEO and co-founder, said: “The payments landscape is evolving toward a mobile-first mindset, and we believe businesses should have the same opportunity to take payments with their phones, as their customers do when making them.

“Tap to Pay on Android will unlock safe and secure payment experiences for businesses who want less friction and demand more flexibility from their Point of Sale system.”

This offers new possibilities for businesses both large and small and is an ideal payment acceptance tool for delivery, transportation, cafes, street fundraisers or any side hustler who gets paid on the go.

The app experienced a high influx of signups after launching its waitlist in March, with 54% from the transportation industry—including taxi and delivery drivers—a surprising 18% being student side hustlers, and 22% across hospitality.

Andrew Ivashev, Dapio’s head of development & product lead, said: “Dapio Tap to Pay is available as a stand-alone, or complimentary payment option for like-minded, future-thinking businesses.

“Quick and simple integrations for any business looking to leverage the power of Tap to Pay in their own Android applications, through our Software Development Kit (SDK) or App-to-app callback APIs”

The cash register of tomorrow will sit in the pocket of any gig worker or small business owner.
