Mobile Payments

NFC devices can be used in contactless payment systems, similar to those currently used in credit cards and electronic ticket smartcards, and allow mobile payment to replace or supplement these systems.

 With the release of Android 4.4, Google and iPhone 6 introduced a new platform support for secure NFC-based transactions for payments, loyalty programs, card access, transit passes, and other custom services. .

 On September 9, 2014, Apple also announced support for NFC-powered transactions as part of their Apple Pay program.
