The FT on 21st September – Zap, tap & go (mobile contactless payments)

26 Sep


So the FT last Friday (sorry, bit behind) had an interesting article on the use of NFC and apps (for iPhones etc) that allow customers to be identified as they walk in to a store by an app sitting on a cash register – worth a read.

Interesting that the examples are of coffee shops and the morning caffeine intake run. It’s a low value transaction, and I’m sure all of us who have stood in a queue while someone fumbles for their credit card & tries to remember their PIN for a £2 cappuccino will welcome the new technology (even if we are still paying cash).
