A couple of years ago, nobody thought that it will be possible to shop cashless and all you will need is an NFC enabled smartphone. Now, it is no longer new to make payment with a smartphone. However, Huawei just made it easier by launching a “touch” payment which enables you to make payment as long as the NFC enabled Huawei smartphone is near the NFC tag. According to the demo video released by Huawei, when you place the NFC enabled Huawei phone close to the NFC tag, the Huawei Pay app will automatically launch and it gives you an option to insert amount, once you insert the amount, you only need to authenticate with your fingerprint and the payment is done instantly. The whole process takes no more than 30 seconds and it is quite easy.
For merchants, the Huawei touch payment enables easy transactions. All you have to do is to open an online smartphone acquiring service and you do not need to purchase POS machines, scanning code guns, etc., which will undoubtedly reduce the labor charges and hardware costs.
According to He Gang, president of Huawei’s smartphone product line, the “Touch” payment will soon be piloted in major cities. Huawei will become the first mobile phone manufacturer in China to support “touch” mobile phone flash payment.
