Online currency and payment trends (Bitcoin, Paypal, etc.)

406

Published on

Gone are the days when cash is king. Nowadays, there are a handful of ways people can pay for goods and services with just their smartphone. And small businesses can cut out the credit card middle man with payment tools like Square. With so many options and crazy jargon, it can be hard to keep up. For instance, have you wondered what a Bitcoin is?

Come join this workshop where will we discuss online currency and payment trends, including Bitcoin, PayPal, Dwolla and Square. We will look at the advantages and disadvantages to the available offerings. We will also discuss how libraries can implement these currency systems and how they can best prepare.

  • Only on the Nexus S 4G by Google right nowNFC devices can be used in contactless payment systems, similar to those currently used in credit cards and electronic ticketsmartcards, and allow mobile payment to replace or supplement these systems. For example, Google Wallet allows consumers to store credit card information in a virtual wallet and then use an NFC-enabled device at terminals that also accept MasterCard PayPasstransactions.[7] Germany,[8] Austria[9] and Latvia have trialed NFC ticketing systems for public transport. And China is using it all over the country in public bus transport. In India NFC based transaction is being implemented in box offices for ticketing purposes.Usages of NFC:-Matching encrypted security code and transporting access key;Due to short transmission range, NFC-based transactions are possibly secure;Instant payments and coupon delivery using your handset, as we do with your credit card or debit card;Exchange of information such as schedules, maps, business card and coupon delivery in a few hundred milliseconds;Pay for items just by waving your phone over the NFC capable devicesTransferring images, posters for displaying and printing(wikipedia - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Near_field_communication)isa Inc. and Visa Europe today announced that NFC-enabled smartphones from Samsung Electronics, LG Electronics and Research In Motion (RIM) have been certified for use with Visa’s mobile application for payments at the point-of-sale, Visa payWave.The Samsung Galaxy SII, LG Optimus NET NFC, BlackBerry  Bold  9900, BlackBerry Bold 9790, BlackBerry  Curve 9360 and BlackBerry Curve 9380 have been added to the list of Visa compliant payment products available for commercial deployment by financial institutions.All the new devices certified by Visa host the Visa payWave application on a secure SIM card and feature NFC (Near Field Communication) technology, the short range communications standard that enables mobile phones to securely transmit payment information to a contactless payment terminal.
