Mobile Payments

In a previous post I listed Near Field Communication (NFC) as one of the 8 hottest trends in mobile for 2012.

As an online marketer seeing how mobile traffic is growing exponentially day by day and mobile payment transaction volume is growing just as dramatically, I found the following article on CBS MoneyWatch particularly interesting as it supports the idea that NFC’s time has finally arrived.

With topics ranging from how NFC is on track to replace credit cards and eventually any need for a wallet, to how the technology will revolutionize location based services such as Foursquare. Gowalla and all forms of check-in, the article does an excellent job of presenting the future of NFC and how it will allow mobile phones to disrupt all of retail.
