Apple Pay Hits the UK Market

POSTED BY Windsor Holden
NFC payments in the UK have received a long-awaited fillip in the form of the launch of Apple Pay.

It enables the monetisation of unbanked and underbanked consumers. It allows for the monetisation of content beyond the mobile handset – on tablets, connected TVs, laptops, desktops and games consoles.
