KPN, Rabobank launch NFC mobile payments service

Wednesday 20 April 2016 | 10:38 CET | News
Rabobank and KPN have launched their NFC payments service for the broader market, after a test introduction earlier this year. Any of the bank's account holders can now use the NFC payment service if they have a suitable Android smartphone and KPN Sim. The new generation of KPN Sim has a Gemalto Secure Element for a protected copy of the customer's payment card. The SE communicates with the rest of the phone to support the payments service.
