Contactless mobile payments are finally gaining momentum

The main stream adoption of NFC (near field communicaton) for performing the payments are now satisfying the financial institutions, marchants, customers and vendors. The main advantage of contactless smartphone transactions is the potential for getting greater security. Payments are made with phones featuring NFC either built-in (via hardware or software) or SIM-based tokenization system. When someone pays by an NFC enable device, the token producing facility genrates a unique code known as a token which goes from the device to the merchant’s NFC-enabled system. The credit card number is not transferred while these transation which means in the event of a breach of fraud, only card information used for transactions would be exposed. The card information of the customer is either saved with the issuing networks like VISA or MASTER, or stored in the cloud network, or in a secure element on the phone. The token is only valid for a single transaction and has no use otherwise. If a fraudster has intercepted the transaction he would only get access to the single-use token, not the card details to miss use.

Added security layers for mobile payments has made the payments safe

To secure the transaction over the mobile phones of via NFC communications it is required to make the transation safe that is why using a fingerprint, an eye scan or using heart rate sensor as an additional form of authentication makes the transation more safe. The combination of biometrics with an embedded secure element and tokenization may provide a dubble layer of safety and robust security than card swipes or using chip and PIN technolgy.

For financial institutions and retailers the smartphone payment system offers an additional way to transact which also helps in maintaining the current ecosystem reducing the wastage of energy and paper at a bit cost of commissions. All the vendors or retailers should consider four major advantages: no need to protect customer data, the higher speed of transactions relative to other payment process, the ability to attract consumers having higher disposable incomes, and the opportunity of providing personalized experiences such as integrated loyalty schemes and offers.
