ABN Amro trials contactless payments via wearables

Thursday 22 June 2017 | 13:53 CET | News
ABN Amro has started a pilot that will test the use of wearables to make contactless payments directly from customer accounts. The bank claims it is the first to make this possible. A select group of users are currently trialing special Kerv rings or watches with NFC (Near Field Technology) to make payments. NFC can be used at nearly 40 million contactless PoS worldwide.
