Microsoft has come up with their own NFC payment system for Windows Mobile 10




Microsoft this summer will most likely with its own payment system based on NFC. Users of Windows 10 Mobile phone can then pay with the Wallet app in the mobile operating system.

It seems that Microsoft will only support the service in the United States, writes Windows Central. The site has been testing the feature with a fast ring-build from the Windows Insider program, coupled with a new version of the Wallet app that sits in the system for several years. Not until the new version is mobile payments via NFC it as an option.

Because Microsoft Host Card Emulation system used, Tap To Pay should work on all the places where other NFC payments also. This is especially in the Netherlands, though in many places. Nevertheless, it seems to function only in the US, because it was not possible with a telephone from the United Kingdom to add a bank card.

Payments operate them without having the display. It is unknown how the authentication expires. The editor of Windows Central has been identified by the iris scanner in Windows Hello, but it is unclear if that time was the authentication of the payment. Many other smartphones do with fingerprint scanners, but which have not Lumia’s.

Tap To Pay in the Microsoft Wallet is thus an alternative to Windows Mobile for 10 systems from competitors. So Apple has for some time now, Apple is Samsung Pay and Pay on Galaxy smartphones, while Google itself is hard for Android Pay.
