How Cellular Electronic Payments Work
Have you heard of the new electronic payment method, using your mobile phone? It’s called Wireless Mobile Credit Card Processing. Let’s say you are on your way home from work and you lost your credit card, you have no cash, and you need to take the train. Now you can take that train with just your mobile phone. There is a field communication device that allows you to swipe your phone in front of the machine and it will take your payment from your credit card, by only using your cellular phone. This device is called a near field communication (NFC) reader.
The NFC will also allow you to pay for your fare, and it will let you know about coupons that you can download on your phone, for example, you are on your way home using the train and the coupon ad comes up about a nearby restaurant, it will give you details about the restaurant and even the location. If you want to just pick up the food and continue on the way home it will allow you to send a text to the restaurant with your order.
If you are going to the movies and you see a coupon for the movie, you can download the details about the film, including when and where it will be by playing the URL for the website or sampling clicking on the order e-ticket button. These forms of credit card processing services paymentsand coupons may seem unreal to you, but they are very much real and they are starting to become the way of the future. Wireless companies are starting to look into ways to make cellular electronic payments safe and easy. NFC is currently working with ways to make sure all security and privacy for cellular electronics payments are safe and efficient. Some people who have already tested this feature have said that even with privacy and security concerns; they are willing to continue using this system. A convenient and easy way to not only get what you need, or get to where you need to go are options you have to have to take into consideration.
