Hey @piracha,

 

Yes, it is possible to make NFC payment app for iPhone using Visa APIs. For contactless payment, we recommend you to use the Visa Token Service API. 

 

Visa Token Services would be a good fit for your 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. Here's the VTS overview here - https://developer.visa.com/capabilities/vts

 

VTS is a restricted product but it's possible for you to gain access. If you'd like to request content access please send an email to developer@visa.com.

Hey @piracha,

 

For NFC contactless payments, I recommend Visa Token Services. Since VTS is a restricted product, I recommend you to reach out to developer@visa.com for information on SDKs and how to get started with implementation.

Hello Diana,

 

I believe the VTS SDK for NFC payment is available only for Android. Please confirm from your end, if I am wrong.

Hey @paul_earnest and piracha,

 

To follow up, we do not have any SDKs for iOS. Apple has that solution embedded into their wallet, that handles the NFC communication to the contactless terminal during payments. This is available to Apple only, and can be used following their specification.
