EE is stepping up its NFC proposition by adding more compatible devices to its 'Cash on Tap' initiative.
The service was launched in July and allows customers to make payments under £20 with applicable handsets that have the Cash on Tap app installed. The service was originally available for Samsung Galaxy S4, Galaxy S3 LTE and Sony Xperia SP users, but now owners of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, Galaxy Note 2 and 3, and the Sony Xperia Z1 will now be eligible. New customers will get £10 free credit when they first sign up, and another £5 when they add money for the first time via debit or credit card. Cash on Tap payments can be made in over 230,000 stores nationwide, including McDonald’s, Caffè Nero, Pret A Manger and Greggs.
Director of propositions at EE, Simeon Bird, said: ‘Cash on Tap is one of the most convenient ways to pay for everyday items, removing the need to reach for your wallet or search out loose change. We’re pleased to be announcing the next compatible handsets, allowing even more EE customers to benefit from the simplicity and control the service offers them.’
Marion King, president UK and Ireland at Mastercard, added: ‘Using your mobile phone to make payments, helps make life quicker and easier for consumers on the high street. And with EE's latest range of Cash on Tap enabled handsets, even more UK customers than ever before can experience the benefits the service provides.’
