Vodafone and Orange will launch NFC-payments in Spain

Fri 06 Sep 2013

Mobile operators Vodafone and Orange intend to launch NFC-payments in Spain.

Thus, by the end of 2013, Vodafone SmartPass users will be able to make mobile payments with their Visa prepaid card accounts in more than 250,000 stores throughout Spain.

To start using mobile payments, users will need to install on their NFC-phone Vodafone SmartPass app. For users whose phones do not support NFC technology, there are contactless stickers that can be attached to the phone in order to make NFC-payments.
