What is Yoco Tap?

Now your customers can pay with a touch

Yoco Tap is a new feature on the Wireless Pro card machine. This contactless form of payment lets your customers pay for smaller purchases by simply tapping their card against the card machine.

Safe and secure

Tap, pay and go.

Yoco Tap uses Near Field Communication (NFC) technology to communicate wirelessly with other NFC enabled cards or devices. The NFC chip in the Wireless Pro ‘talks’ to the chip on Visa and MasterCard contactless cards as well as Samsung Pay and FNB Pay on mobile devices.

Encryption technology makes contactless as safe as chip and PIN.

Yoco Tap is as secure as regular chip card payments as it uses encryption to protect your customer’s details. Yoco merchants are covered with zero liability protection which means you’re not liable for unauthorised transactions. Every card also has a built in security check so your customers will have to enter a PIN from time to time.
