Payment systems have evolved to stay up-to-date and meet consumer demands, and with that comes one of the fastest growing methods out there—contactless payment. A contactless payment, as the name suggests, doesn’t require any physical contact between the buyer and the POS, therefore offering a more efficient and sanitary experience.
When it comes to contactless payment you might have heard the term NFC, which stands for “near field communication.” NFC is the technology that powers contactless payments through a type of radio frequency identification (called RFID). NFC transactions take place over a specific radio frequency that enables the card or smartphone to communicate with the payment reader when they’re close together (usually 10 centimeters or less).
Stay current and offer your customers the best possible experience when making a purchase. Getting setup with a contactless payment system is easy—just call Big Sky Commerce and we’ll get started.
