Near-Field Communication (NFC) utilizes the same tap-to-pay technology as contactless chips, but instead of using their Cards, individuals can load their payment information onto their NFC-enabled mobile phones.
In addition to the standard contactless features, mobile NFC helps to ensure a secure and protected shopping experience to gain consumer trust and confidence, enhance payment security at the point of sale, and enable consumer-preferred forms of payment such using a smart phone to make payments.
American Express® recommends using an integrated terminal that is both contactless and contact EMV-enabled.
