CommBank PayTag sticker big step forward

Despite its problems, CommBank’s $2.99 PayTag NFC payments sticker for mobile phones is a big step forward from the earlier workaround, an iCarte case for iPhone 4 users. CommBank was selling the cases with a $50 price tag.

Yesterday the Samsung's Galaxy S5 was launched in Australia with a NFC antenna. CommBank's app and its Tap N Go NFC payments service work with the NFC chip and antenna embedded in the Samsung Galaxy series on the Android operating system, as does the Westpac app.

Westpac chose not to market NFC stickers when launching its Visa scheme NFC payments capability for the Westpac app.
