PayNow¬†supports NFC – simply tap any card with the PayWave/PayPass logo to the back of your NFC capable device until it beeps and it will fill the card details. From there you can send the charge to Stripe to be processed as a card-not-present transaction. For anyone without NFC you can manually enter the card details or use your device camera to auto populate. Given that these three methods are already implemented we’re not planning to add a swipe card reader – that’s a technology on the decline with NFC on the up. We do plan to add ApplePay and AndroidPay support in the near future.
