Rewe Group’s Austrian supermarket format Billa is to introduce Near Field Communication (NFC) payment terminals to its Vienna stores this spring. The retailer has teamed up with PayLife, an Austrian cashless payments specialist, to install the NFC terminals.
The move will allow shoppers to purchase goods worth up to €25 with NFC-enabled cards such as Maestro PayPass, MasterCard PayPass, Visa PayWave or Quick pre-paid cards. The service will be available at some 800 checkouts in Billa's Vienna stores. (4 April)
