With the Vibrant app, you can accept payments from any contactless method, including cards, Apple Watch, Apple Pay & Google play.
Vibrant currently can only work as a terminal on Android devices that are NFC capable.
To build the card-to-phone transactions, we use a wireless technology called NFC (Near Field Communication) which is a short-range wireless technology that enables data transfer between two NFC devices. Devices that use NFC are usually cards and phones that are able to process contactless payments and payment terminals that receive contactless transactions.
Apple devices have their NFC blocked in their operating system, which only enables their devices to make payments and not receive them. Android phones have placed the NFC chip in a position that allows their smartphones to not only make transactions but also receive them. Revolutionizing the way payments can be taken!
