Recent Apple Announcement Clouds Adoption Of Mobile Payments
With Refusal To Support NFC On New iPhones Apple Complicates The Market
This multi-purpose feature can also be used in mobile payments applications and uses the same radio frequency as the "Radio Frequency Identification" or "RFID" technology: 13.56 MHz. That is the exact frequency used by the chips and payment systems built around contactless credit, ATM and debit payment cards.
This article from the DailyFinance site provides some additional analysis of the move by Apple and the alternate technologies ("AirDrop" and "iBeacon") they will build into iOS 7. Also discussed there are the levels of adoption of NFC by competing phone, device and OS providers.
Per Rick Dondo, Director of Marketing for CARMick Products: "This move will further confuse the marketplace and result in more delays in the adoption of mobile payments via Smartphones. This will mean payment cards of all types will prevail for longer than may have been the case if Apple had adopted NFC. As a result, consumers wanting the convenience of "swipe and go" transactions cards will be carrying contactless cards longer than expected."
He went to say further that "The CARD ID Preserver sleeves will continue to offer a great value proposition to consumers. These inexpensive envelopes really are ‘The Secret to Keeping Your Data Where It Belongs™' and allows you to carry your cards in the wallet, bag or purse you already love."
CARMick Products makes their sleeves available on Amazon. The credit card holder blocks unauthorized scans of your cards by rogue scanners and Smartphones; devices equipped with RFID, NFC and other technologies capable of stimulating and reading the data stored on your credit and other payment cards.
