Is iPhone's Tap to Pay feature available in Australia?

Tap to Pay on iPhone has been released to US only, is there any indication or information on an Australian release? I find it bizarre that we have to wait for regional releases.

Hi, @FlowersGC!
Thanks for reaching out in our Community Forums and for sharing your concern, I’d be happy to help.

 

I understand the benefits of expanding the availability of Tap to Pay to more regions as it's an excellent way to explore in-person sales without the need for additional hardware. Currently, Tap to Pay is only available in the United States. I can assure you that we are constantly striving to make our features more accessible. I will be sure to pass along your interest and feedback to our developers for their consideration.

 

Thank you once again for your interest!

Do you have any indication of timeframes at all? Australia is a big market for Shopify, and it’s the same technology.. just a different region.

Hi again, @FlowersGC!

Thanks for following up.

 

I understand the urgency of the situation. In general, it's important to note that different regions often have unique regulations and procedures that must be followed, even if the technology remains the same. While I don't have a specific timeframe, I want to assure you that your feedback has been forwarded to our team.

 

Cheers!
