McDonald’s to install contact-less payment across 1,200 stores in the UK
Evidently Google was onto something when they decided to feature the latest Near Field Communication (NFC) Technology on their flagship device, the Nexus S. McDonald’s restaurants across the United Kingdom are to feature this new contact-less payment option as more and more companies embrace the idea. There are said to be 12 million NFC-enabled payment cards out there at the moment and this latest endorsement by the worlds largest restaurant chain is only going to spur development even further.
The fast-food chain, with 1,200 restaurants across the UK, has collaborated with Visa to bring the technology to the masses and if you’re wondering about how secure the payments will be, there will be a £15 limit on NFC payments. Once the limit is reached, users will have to switch to a chip-and-pin reader.
