Contactless payments are no longer the future of payment technology, but the present.
What is near field communication (NFC)?
NFC stands for “near field communication.” It’s the technology that allows smartphones and other devices to communicate with each other when they’re close together. NFC enables mobile payments, which are transactions that require no physical contact between the payments device and the payments reader.
Our payment solutions support all NFC brands, from the Card Associations’ “Tap to Pay” to the NFC Wallets such as Apple Pay, Android Pay and Samsung Pay. To trigger an NFC payment, you hold your credit card or smartphone up to an NFC reader. The devices have to be pretty close — a couple inches at the most.
The transaction time is really fast — the whole thing takes just seconds. It’s also really secure. For example Apple Pay works through Touch ID (Apple’s fingerprint technology); things are pretty locked down even if your phone is stolen. What’s more, contactless payments like Apple Pay contain multiple layers of dynamic encryption. The data associated with the cards you have on file is constantly changing. So even if fraudsters were somehow able to get in there, the information would be useless to them.
