The first service that allows users to pay for goods using their mobile phones has been launched in the United Kingdom. Some shops already signed up to the service include McDonalds, EAT and Pret-a-Manager.
According to a report, Orange and Barclaycard teamed up to bring this useful new service to consumers, and those interested in making use of it, will need Orange and Barclaycard accounts as well as a handset set up for contactless payments.
The service, dubbed Quick Tap, is a collaboration between Orange and Barclaycard. It will require a NFC-enabled Samsung Tocco Lite handset, which will be available in the UK as from today.
Users will be in a position to make purchases up to a value of £15, but can pre-load their mobile phones with up to £100.
