NFC (near field communication) is the technology that allows two devices—like your phone and a payments terminal—to talk to each other when they’re close together. NFC is the technology that enables contactless payments.
What are some examples of NFC mobile payments?
The buzziest are Apple Pay, Android Pay, and Samsung Pay.
How do I accept NFC?You’ll need to get a new NFC-enabled payments reader that can accept contactless payments. The Square contactless and chip reader accepts both NFC and EMV payments.
Are NFC point-of-sale systems expensive?
Not necessarily. Some can be hundreds of dollars, but Square’s NFC-enabled reader is just $49.
Is NFC secure?
NFC mobile payments are dynamically encrypted, making them one of the most secure ways to pay.
