Huawei has announced a partnership with German mobile wallet Stocard to enable NFC payments in Europe.
Stocard worked with Huawei to integrate basic Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) capabilities into their app, enabling NFC payments on Huawei smartphones. Huawei mobile users in the UK, Germany, Italy, France and the Netherlands can now make smartphone payments without having to carry physical cards.
The introduction of NFC payments gives Huawei smartphone users easy access to membership cards and vouchers, making collecting loyalty points easier than ever. Additional discounts, coupons and flyers will be available through the app, with the ability to claim cash on everything from airline tickets to gift cards from participating retailers; retailers include IKEA, Tchibo MediaMarkt, Douglas and others.
