The Post Office, a postal services company wholly owned by the United Kingdom’s Royal Mail, has announced plans to make use of NFC technology for a new contactless payment scheme that will be implemented throughout the company’s postal network.

NFC technology to merge with country’s postal service

The Post Office, a postal services company wholly owned by the United Kingdom’s Royal Mail, has announced plans to make use of NFC technology for a new contactless payment scheme that will be implemented throughout the company’s postal network. The company has taken note of the growing popularity of mobile commerce, which is made possible through the use of NFC technology. NFC allows consumers to use their mobile devices to make payments for goods and services without having to make contact with a terminal or use physical currency. This concept has managed to grab the attention of consumers, who are now clamoring for NFC-enabled mobile devices.

Post Office to work with MasterCard and Visa for latest endeavor

 

The company’s new mobile payment system will allow MasterCard and Visa customers to make payments using NFC-enabled mobile devices at over 11,500 facilities throughout the United Kingdom. Consumers will also be able to use their MasterCard Paypass of Visa payWave cards to make NFC-based transactions.
