Dapio Launch Tap-to-Phone in the US

We are thrilled to announce Dapio is launching stateside, through our partner ZmBIZI and their smartphone app. Dapio is the first U.S. Tap-to-Phone provider to touchdown and offer this emerging technology, with ZmBIZI we are looking forward to bring speedier and more accessible payment acceptance to those who need it most.

Our launch in the US will coincide with Visa launching its first U.S. Tap to Phone pilot in Washington D.C. to support the region’s black-owned small businesses. The pilot will see Visa providing ZmBIZI’s Z1 devices with Tap to Phone technology empowered by Dapio, on a six-city SMB revitalization initiative, which also includes Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles and Miami.

“With the ZmBIZI Smartphone integrated with the Dapio SoftPOS we are now able to create the next generation of mobile merchants who are doing ‘business on the go’.
This is how we empower communities across the globe to become truly self-sufficient . A one stop business solution that is also a verified partner for Visa Global Small Business Solutions” says Alpesh Patel, Co Founder of ZmBIZI

“With our technology, networking and community resources, we’re hoping to empower small businesses everywhere to meet their customers in the next phase of digital-first commerce.”

Having been on this journey for three years, as a technology solution provider and payment gateway, this is an exciting milestone for Dapio and we look forward to working with ZmBIZI to bring a more seamless payment experience to their merchant customers across the US.

Our Co Founder and CEO, Kosta Du notes “We are excited to be expanding our reach to the US through our partner ZmBIZI. This move will allow more independent businesses across the US to accept payments without the upfront costs for external POS hardware, meaning small businesses and gig economy workers can accept card and digital payments quickly, on the go, anytime”

For us this project with Visa is the necessary place to start as we launch in the US, enabling those who will feel the benefit of Dapios SoftPOS technology the most.
