txtNation, RapidNFC team up for NFC-enabled direct carrier billing services

Tuesday 23 April 2013 10:18 CET | News

UK-based billing, content and mobile messaging platforms provider txtNation has entered an agreement with supplier of NFC tags and products RapidNFC to provide direct operator billing via NFC technology.

Using NFC tags, compatible mobile phones can scan the tag, launching a tailored payment interface. The user confirms payment and is billed. Users browsing via WiFi, rather than their mobile data plan, are prompted to enter their mobile number to continue payment.

Without additional linking of a phone to a bank account, card payment or by entering a username or password, users can be billed with txtNation’s solution with an NFC tap and a one-click confirmation on a mobile Web page. Users are charged to their monthly mobile contract or pay-as-you-go balance.

In recent news, txtNation has made the Payforit 4 service available for clients operating in the UK market across their platforms.
