post office nfcWith the advent of modern technology, how many of us rely on snail mail these days? Do you even know the postman’s schedule in your neighborhood? Well, for those of us who tend to spend time at a Post Office branch, you will be pleased to know that you are able to make full use of contactless credit, debit cards and payment-enabled phones. The Post Office will begin to implement contactless payment terminals throughout its entire range of 11,500 branches from June 6th onwards, which will more or less make it the largest user of contactless acceptance technology in Europe. The entire roll out will be completed before October is over – at least that is what is being envisioned.

Lesley Sewell, chief information officer at Post Office Ltd., said, “Contactless will bring huge benefits to our customers by increasing choice and reducing transaction times.” Basically, with contactless technology, you are able to pay for goods by waving your card over a specially designed sales terminal, so there are no more pesky PIN numbers to remember and clog your mind with. All payments made with the technology will be limited up to £20.
