Wait, which iPhone model is that one with white background?

so what's the merchant fee? more then 2.9% I presume?

The merchant fee would vary depending on whichever company the vendor decides to go with. Apple is not facilitating these transactions themselves.

Customers don’t need an Apple device. They can use a contactless debit card, credit card, Google Pay, Samsung Pay…
