Do you own a Windows 10 handset, now you can use the Microsoft Wallet with a compatible credit card by the tap-to-pay feature. The tech giant, Microsoft said that finally, it has now turned the ability to pay for the tap feature for the purchases in the phones that has Windows 10 software. Microsoft already trails Samsung, Google and Apple phones that are already using NFC mobile payment.
Users of Windows 10 handset can wait to use the tap-to-pay or get started with the beta version readily available. However, the new feature will soon roll out, though there are cautions and limitations such as:
- The Microsoft Wallet app is now working with Lumia 650, Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL Phones.
- This app supports limited banks such as Bank of America and regional three credit unions. The US and Chase Bank will also be coming soon. In case you wish to use it now, consider being a Windows Insider Program.
These devices make up to 1 percent and Microsoft does a great favor to the phone division. The tap to pay app technically has not come for the first time to Windows Phone. In fact, in the year 2014 itself, Softcard permitted such mobile payments, but as its technology was last year acquired by Google, Softcard discontinued this app.
Windows Phone users can now make use of Softcard in the U.S. outlets to pay. This service is a joint venture between T-Mobile, Verizon, AT &T and you can pay through NFC at eligible locations easily. This can be done by:
- Adding eligible payment cards and acquiring the protections and benefits required with the physical card.
- Softcard features the security layers to protect the information and the state-of-the-art technology.
- You can easily find participating merchants money-saving offers on your phone and use it readily.
You have to log in using your PIN and hold your phone back on the NFC logo while you check out.
