Testing for mobile payment is now required by the mobile operator association GSMA through their NFC Handset Test Book. Comprion joins EMVCo as a Technical Associate. The company offers its experience and expertise in detecting communication problems of the contactless interface used for mobile payment. Paying by cell phone is certainly a convenient way of purchasing everyday commodities; however, it is also a sensitive topic as the user’s private banking data are involved. A high degree of reliability of the deployed technology relying on comprehensive testing is the key success factor. Without testing, technology problems might lead to a lack of user acceptance. Therefore, the GSMA TS.27 NFC Handset Test Book demands that handsets to be used for mobile payment have to run through the EMVCo test plan.
