How Tap & Pay works
What is Tap & Pay?
Tap & Pay is the ability for your DPO Pay Mobile app to read a customer’s card with just a tap on the back of the device using NFC technology.
What is NFC?
Near Field Communication (NFC) is how devices communicate upon touch or close proximity. This can include communicating with each other or authenticating credit cards, access control, file transfer, and initiating wireless connections.
How can customers to start making payments using Tap & Pay?
The Tap & Pay option will be available via the DPO Pay mobile app as an additional payment option. Merchants will simply need to select Tap & Pay as the payment option and follow the payment screens as guided on the app to process payments.
Can Tap & Pay be used for online payments?
Tap & Pay is a face-to-face payment option as it needs the customer to physically pay at the merchant’s device via NFC technology, therefore this cannot be utilised for online payments.
Is there a limit to how much a customer can Tap & Pay using their card without inputting a PIN?
The customer’s bank sets the limit for transactions that can be carried out without inputting a PIN. Once this limit has been surpassed, the customer will be required to input their PIN on the merchant’s device to complete the payment.
How secure is Tap & Pay?
Because this is a face-to-face payment transaction, it is a much safe transaction option than online payments, and the chances of fraud are significantly reduced. If a customers’ card has been stolen, customers are advised to immediately report the same to their bank to block their card and reduce the chances of having someone use their card for a Tap & Pay transaction.
How do I access Tap & Pay?

Which card schemes are supported by Tap & Pay?
Visa, Mastercard and Amex cards. This is depended on the access given during onboarding.
