We’ve all been there: you’re waiting in line at the grocery store, and the person in front of you is slowly rummaging for the right credit card–or worse, pulls out a checkbook! As you stifle an internal groan, think positive: quicker payment options are here.
Most merchants have been upgrading their payment systems to accept smart chip credit and debit cards. You’ll probably find that the merchants also enabled the technology behind Digital Wallets–near field communication (NFC). Apple Pay®, Google Pay™ and Samsung Pay® all utilize NFC, making them a very secure way to pay.
