SoftCard App brings NFC mobile payments to At&t Lumia Phones


At&t just released their Softcard app for their Lumia phones for contactless payments

The Softcard app allows you to make payment with your phone via NFC. NFC enabled devices have been around for a while now  but recently gained popularity after Apple Pay was announced a couple of weeks ago.

The Softcard app allows for…

  • Payments: Add eligible payment cards and get all the benefits and protections you would with your physical card. Or setup a prepaid account and add money to it with your preferred debit card, credit card or U.S. bank account.
  • Offers: Find money-saving offers from participating merchants—right on your phone and ready to use.
  • Loyalty: Store participating loyalty cards and cut the clutter. Plus, Softcard features state-of-the-art technology and layers of security to protect your information.

This app is only available for At&t Lumia phones (Lumia 520, 820, 635, 920, 925, 1020 and 1520), so if you have a non-At&t branded Lumia, you will not be able to use this.

There is no word if T-Mobile and Verizon will be releasing their own NFC mobile payment apps for Windows too.
