Visa Token Services might be a good fit for a requirement of taking contactless card payments via a mobile device. We have Card-On-File" (COF) functionality available on the Portal and these are the APIs that enable provisioning and use of tokens for HCE-based contactless (NFC) payments and for in-app purchases using tokens provisioned to a mobile device. Please see the Visa Token Service documentation provided below.

Regarding the NFC using iPhone:
The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have NFC, but only for payments. They cannot scan NFC tags either with or without an App.
The iPhones 7, 8 and X also have NFC for payments but additionally, with iOS 11 and an NFC App, they can read NFC tags.
The latest iPhone XS, XS Max and XR have NFC for payments and can read NFC tags with or without an additional App. In addition, the iPhone XS and XR can encode NFC tags when running the latest iOS 13 software.
The latest generation of iPhones, the XS, XS Max and XR are the first to be able to read NFC out of box. It’s not known whether Apple will add native tag reading into any previous generations of iPhone.
Regarding the SDK from Visa:
@Diana - I am sure, the SDK is available for Android. But Visa should confirm, whether they have SDK for iOS to support NFC.
