Vodafone Omnitel N.V. Key Developments

Vodafone Italia Introduces SmartPass Mobile Payments System and Vodafone Wallet

Vodafone Italia introduced the SmartPass mobile payments system and Vodafone Wallet. SmartPass is a NFC-based payments system that allows customers to wave their phone at a point-of-sale terminal in order to pay for goods and services. A PIN is only needed for purchases over EUR 25. Vodafone earlier rolled out SmartPass in its other European markets, and in Italy it's working with Mastercard, Maestro and CartaSi to integrate the system with payments cards. With the Vodafone Wallet application for smartphones, customers can set up account with their payment card details, as well as other loyalty cards and transport passes. This can then be used for SmartPass payments. To use SmartPass, customers need a NFC phone and Sim. Vodafone estimates there are already more than 8 million NFC phones in use in Italy, and it has issued over 200,000 Sims supporting the technology. Customers can get more information about activating the payment services at Vodafone stores from April 29, 2014.
