Wind and BNL test NFC payments


Wind and BNL BNP Paribas Group, in collaboration with SIA and MasterCard, have started an NFC technology (Near Field Communication), which allows users to make purchases in contactless mode via Samsung smartphones, with a Classic Credit Card issued by BNL on the MasterCard circuit and virtualized on a NFC SIM provided by Gemalto.

To utilize the service, users simply select the method of payment on the Wind and BNL test NFC payments App ‘YouPass BNL’ and place the smartphone close to a contactless enabled POS.

An increasing number of retailers, large and small, are adopting POS terminals with NFC technology thanks to new partnerships between MasterCard and the major operators throughout Italy: from large supermarkets to restaurants and fast food chains, from fashion and sport stores to large cities taxis.

The trial will use the SIA infrastructure, the first company in Europe that has created a hub interoperable between banks and Telcos for contactless payment via smartphone and other NFC services.
