Apple Pay off to a good start with m-payment

Thursday 11 September 2014 | 16:14 CET | Author: Bart Garvelink | Background
Apple has announced Apple Pay, the service for retail payments with iPhone and iTunes. While NFC payment in the iPhone 6 is important, online payment is just as significant. Apple Pay will launch in the US in October, and have a broader support than other m-payment services, like Softcard and CurrentC. The fact that Apple has embraced NFC is an important stimulus for the NFC ecosystem. When & where Apple Pay will launch in Europe is not yet determined.
