Near Field Communication (NFC) Definition

Merchant Account NFC Explained:

What is NFC? NFC, or Near Field Communication, is a set of standards for smart devices to interact via radio communication when in close proximity to one another. This technology is currently attracting some attention as a method of processing payments wirelessly using smartphones.

NFC payments, also known as contactless payments, generally take place when a customer’s smartphone or NFC chip-embedded card is held in front of or near an NFC-compatible scanner. Financial information necessary for payment is transmitted via wireless communication between the two devices, resulting in a cash- and card-free transaction. NFC payment processing has gained in popularity in Europe, but may soon become a common method of payment in the US as well.

Why I'm Qualified to Write About Credit Card Processing

I'm a former credit card processing sales director who left the industry to start my own a small business. From the time that I starting working in the merchant services industry to when I left to write about it, I've been on the pulse of payments for nearly 15 years. It didn't seem fair to keep this insider knowledge to myself, so built this website to help small business owners research which service providers to use and how to save money on rates and fees. I've reviewed hundreds of companies, read thousands of user reviews, and learned the pricing tricks of every provider. If you have questions about credit card processing, you can find the answers here. I can help you save money with your current merchant account or help you find a new one. Message me here to get started.
