USA: Pay for your means of transport with the iPhone …

enero 23, 2020

It is in the United States, and more precisely in New York City, that it is already possible to pay for your ticket (metro and bus) using your iPhone.

This is actually a pilot project initiated by the payment agency Visa who is trying to convince several public transport services. Visa is also trying to convince the ?Bank of America? to be able to allow this method of payment also at most merchants in New York City.

The principle of payment works from an iPhone application dedicated to the service but it is however not precise how the transaction is carried out exactly: Bluetooth? NFC / RFID chip?

That said, it remains to wonder about the effectiveness of this means of payment if the user loses his iPhone?.

We discuss it on the forum
