Mobile Payment has been a huge success. Well, not yet in Germany or even Europe, no, not yet. But in Africa, e.g. in Kenya Safaricom’s M-Pesa has seen a widespread adoption. Still, M-Pesa’s success does not rely on NFC. Then FeliCa (started in 2004 and based on the FeliCa smart card system) in Japan NFC was and is hugely successful – though it was based on RFID and has just recently moved towards NFC.
Reading the press releases of the Mobile World Congress and of the movers and shakers of the payment industry more than less seem to believe that NFC + mobile will bring about a huge change in the first world.
In this MobileMonday we’d like to shed some light on the ongoing development in NFC payment and invite you to discuss with our panelists the Future of NFC & mobile payment. Let’s see if we can distill the key success factors and the killer app(s) as well as the key enablers to market entry for NFC payment from the all the noise out there.
