Near Field Communication (NFC) technology enables a contactless payment to be made using a compatible smartphone with NFC functionality or a payment tag. To make a contactless payment, tap your compatible smartphone with Vodafone SmartPass installed on a payment terminal that accepts contactless payments.
An NFC SIM works like a normal one – you can make calls, send texts and browse the internet. It also includes a Secure Element (SE) which is developed by Visa. This is a part of the SIM that secures all contactless payments made with a compatible smartphone with Vodafone Wallet and Vodafone SmartPass installed. This means that all contactless payments are securely processed over the Visa payment network in the same way as debit and credit card payments.
