NFC mobile payments

What are NFC mobile payments?

The near-field communication (NFC) technology allows for making contactless payments without using physical money or bank cards. Instead of paying by card, you pay by placing your phone or smartwatch near the special reader machine at the counter. On iOS devices, NFC mobile payments happen thanks to Apple Pay.

Before using it at the store, ensure that your Apple device has NFC enabled. Open the app and add a debit card you want to use for payments. To make a purchase, place your phone or Apple Watch next to the NFC reader. The app may require that you confirm the transaction using touch ID, face ID, or PIN.

The app does not charge you anything for using its services online or at stores.

Genome's virtual and physical Visa cards for individuals and business users are all eligible for Apple Pay.

Physically, people use their iPhones or Apple Watches to pay for things. The process is simple: once you have everything set up for payments and in a place that accepts this payment method, place the phone/watch near the reader, then approve the transaction.

Tap to pay is a term used to describe contactless payments made using a card with a chip or an NFC-enabled device on a checkout terminal. So, when you use Apple Pay at a store, you are actually tapping to pay.

If your phone runs on iOS, you can use Apple Pay to do it. Just open the app and link a card you want to make payments with.

Note that the ATM you need must be cardless and have NFC enabled. Open your Apple Pay. From there, you will need to select a card for payments. Tap your smartphone near the contactless symbol on the ATM and enter the card's PIN.
