At the Intel Developer Forum, the international credit card issuer MasterCard and chip maker Intel once again launched a discussion on electronic payment services. The action shows that the two companies will work together to provide merchants and notebook manufacturers with the payment terminal technology they need. For consumers, this means that when shopping online, consumers will no longer need to save credit card information online or enter a lengthy credit card number each time, just by waving the credit card in front of the computer. Can complete the payment.
In this forum, the two companies demonstrated how to use Near Field Communication (NFC) payments to buy a product on TigerDirect. The presenter simply took a credit card on the touchpad and tapped it quickly. The transaction was completed. On the surface it may not be a big deal, but this new way of paying online will really make payments easier and safer. Since you don't need passwords to protect financial transactions, in today's era of cyber attacks and phishing attacks, you don't have to worry about hackers stealing your credit card, and you don't need to log in to each online payment account to change payment information after changing your credit card. .
Although this payment method is not yet mature, it seems that this technology is very promising. Leveraging MasterCard's expertise in payment processes and transactions, as well as Intel's chip-based security technology, the two companies are working hard to provide this safer and easier network payment for consumers using ultra-thin notebooks and PCs with Intel chips. The way, let us have reason to believe that in the near future, Near Field Communication (NFC) payment technology will be popular in our daily life.
In addition, there are other facts that can reaffirm the future of this technology: First, we have to admit that we are now in the midst of a revolution in mobile payments. For the average consumer, the use of PayPass, Google Wallet (all companies are close behind), electronic or NFC-based payments in stores and even in the square is no longer a novelty. Second, Apple is also planning to join the new payment model through the Passbook feature. Although it is not the first and not the largest company dedicated to this technology, its participation will play a non-negligible role in promoting the popularity of this new payment method. Finally, as more and more mobile phones and computers have built-in NFC modules, your life will be affected by this new payment and information transfer model for the foreseeable future.
This new payment method may not fundamentally change our lives, but it will definitely make our lives easier, because in today's world it is estimated that no one will not shop online often. Every time I think that I need to make a light touch to complete the payment, I especially look forward to the early arrival of this day.
