Mobile phones with NFC are the only ones that can make contactless payments. The process is as quick and easy as unlocking the phone, bringing it closer to the point of sale terminal and making the payment. If some time ago the user had to opt for a high-end mobile to enjoy this technology, now this has changed enormously and we can find basic-range smartphones that have it.
And it is that payment through mobile phones is becoming more common among users. The convenience it offers is notorious when it comes to taking out your wallet, looking for the card and typing the pin in the point of sale terminal. Of course, although it is becoming more frequent, not all smartphones can do it.
Within the Orange mobile catalog we can find a wide variety of smartphones with NFC, an essential technology today. Of course, in addition to this wireless connection label, the user must register their cards through one of the applications available for it.
