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

None of the iPhones have a thin bezel like that.

so what's the merchant fee? more then 2.9% I presume?
From my understanding the recipient will still need a merchant services account like Square to receive the funds, this just enables the NFC phone-to-phone compatability. The merchant fee would vary depending on whichever company the vendor decides to go with. Apple is not facilitating these transactions themselves.

It’s also much easier to buy an iPhone as they’re available from so many retailers and online stores than to buy a dedicated card terminal and wait for it to be shipped.

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