Mobile payments promises to make life easier for business owners
ATLANTA, GA. (PRWEB) September 17, 2012
Mobile payments, using a smartphone to pay a bill, is a tsunami rolling in to the business world. Instead of wreaking havoc and destruction, Protect Your Bubble says this wave promises to make life easier for business owners.
Instead of having to handle credit cards or cash, a business merely needs a Near Field Communication (NFC) scanner. A customer passes his smartphone by the scanner and the payment is made.
The business gets the following advantages:
- No worries about large amounts of cash in the registers. This means less chance for money to go missing whether by theft or making incorrect change.
- No concerns about forgetting to hand a credit card back to the shopper. While not a major source of credit card theft, dishonest employees failing to return a card and later using the card is a problem
The consumers gets these advantages:
- Convenience. No more searching through a purse or wallet for cash or a credit card. Simply pass the smartphone by the NFC and sign on the electronic screen. Purchase completed.
- Security is getting tighter. As NFC technology improves and more people move smartphone payments, a systems of checks, cross-checks and ID verification is getting better and better.
Businesses and shoppers share an advantage, immediate delivery of a purchase. More and more consumers are shopping online. Many are using smartphones to shop. They are also using these devices to check prices. If a store has a “meet the competitor’s price” guarantee, a store can offering the same price and immediate delivery of the purchased item. Consumers will take advantage of this. Today, more people carry a smartphone than cash. This means retail transactions are going to increasingly move to the mobile marketplace.
