Pre-Covid, over 40%% of consumers surveyed used contactless payment daily or almost daily, most with a smartphone. Today, that number is skyrocketing. Uses for contactless technology beyond payment – public transportation, digital identity, unlocking and starting vehicle, access control – are growing fast as the “contactless lifestyle” catches on. A recent ABI Research global survey sponsored by the NFC Forum shows that contactless technologies like near field communication (NFC) are surging as consumers look for convenient and secure ways to pay, unlock and connect with the world around them.

To be successful today, brands and retailers need to compete more effectively in a mobile-first, omnichannel world. NFC technology offers a multitude of ways for brands and retailers to develop and strengthen a connection with the consumer at every step throughout their journey – pre-purchase, in-store, and post-purchase. NFC helps consumers by connecting them to helpful information when and where it’s needed, offering a channel to interact with brands, delivering offers and rewards, providing the simplicity of one-tap payment, and more. For retailers and brands, NFC can lead to revenue growth, better customer experiences, new insights via customer analytics, and deeper, long-lasting relationships with the people who buy and use their products.
