Deutsche Telekom has unveiled an NFC mobile wallet in Germany, enabling customers to make low value contactless payments at MasterCard PayPass terminals.
Customers who download the MyWallet app can link it to a MasterCard pre-paid account issued by Deutsche Telekom's ClickandBuy International subsidiary.
Users with select Samsung and Sony handsets running Android will be offered an NFC-enabled SIM while customers with other phones and operating systems can use contactless stickers instead.
Germans who sign up for the wallet will get a EUR40 bonus and Deutsche Telekom is promising to add new features such as coupons this Summer. The service will also be expanded to Slovakia and Hungary later this year.
