Visa and JPMorgan Chase are launching apps for contactless payment system for sellers

28.10.2020 News

On Tuesday, JPMorgan Chase announced the launch of its mobile payment service QuickAccept, and on Wednesday, Visa launched its application called Tap to Phone.

The purpose of both programs is to offer sellers an easy way to accept contactless payments from customers via a smartphone or tablet.

According to Visa, in the context of the global COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing, the growth in the use of touch payment technology has increased by 40% this year. A recent company survey found that 48% of consumers said they would not shop at a store that only accepts cash.

The world’s largest payment processing company Visa has launched the Tap to Phone app in 15 markets, including European countries, with plans to expand in the US and other markets.

The app will soon appear in Brazil, Italy, the United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom. The launch of Tap to Phone in the US is scheduled for 2021.

The launch of Tap to Phone follows a pilot implementation with Samsung last year.

The application allows Android devices to serve as tools for accepting payments by bank cards of the international standard EMV (Europay, MasterCard and VISA) without any other additional equipment.

According to a Visa study, less than 10% of the 180 million micro and retail merchants worldwide can accept digital payments. A Visa survey found that 63% would likely use Tap to Phone for their business, while about 50% of consumers said they would use it if offered.

The launch of the QuickAccept mobile payment service opens up great prospects for JPMorgan and will allow the bank to compete with mobile payment companies such as Square and PayPal.

This move by JPMorgan, the largest US bank in terms of assets, marks an even greater immersion in the fin-tech field of large banks.

Jen Roberts, CEO of Chase Banking, said in an interview with CNBC that the bank will transfer most of its more than 3 million small business customers to the new service. At the same time, the service will be aimed at customers with an annual income of less than $ 500,000 who want to avoid paying an instant transfer fee.

Visa shares, which rose up to 19.26% over the past six months, fell nearly 2% over the past week.

Shares of JPMorgan Chase have fallen to 28.7% since the beginning of the year, but have risen up to 11% over the past 6 months.
