Telecom Italia and the Intesa Sanpaolo bank have signed an agreement aimed at implementing mobile payments in Italy. With a mobile phone equipped with a NFC Sim from Telecom Italia and connected to a payment card from Intesa Sanpaolo Group, it will be possible to pay for purchases by simply waving the mobile phone over the authorised POS device. The Move and Pay application will now be made available to TIM customers to support the service. A pilot project will be launched in Milan by the end of 2012, and this will be extended nationwide in early 2013.
