What is a NFC transaction?
More and more people are utilizing their phones and other electronic devices to make transactions... just look at ApplePay™.
NFC is an acronym for Near Field Communication.
NFC is a form of wireless communication that allows the flow of information between two devices. NFC-enabled devices act like smart cards, allowing users to perform transactions such as purchases, ticketing, and transit access control with just a touch of your device. The NFC-enabled device communicates with an external reader much like a traditional contactless smart card. This enables contactless payments and ticketing by NFC-enabled devices without changing existing infrastructure. What is special about a NFC transaction?
