On 5th of December I handed in my Bachelor Thesis. My topic was Mobile Payment with Smartphones and how one can embed such a system to a market. But what’s it all about?
Many well-known companies such as Google, Microsoft or PayPal deal with Mobile Payment procedures based on Near Field Communication (NFC). Facing the great market for mobile Apps and upcoming solutions, it’s obvious that a trend to NFC-based systems emerges. My work covers this field and extends it by enhancing processes for retail. Further I put emphasize on maintenance of product information, cart management and the checkout process. Thus clients as well as employees shall be unburdened. Accordingly a software solution is introduced, based on the operation system Android and the transmission standard NFC.
