Near Field Communication (NFC)-enabled POS terminals have been introduced in Nigeria by United Bank for Africa Plc in partnership with Unified Payment Systems Limited. The service is dubbed PayAttitude, a faster and seamless, contactless payment solution that the bank said never fails.
UBA’s Divisional Head for e-Banking, Yinka Adedeji, said: “the tag can be obtained from designated UBA business offices. We have the PayAttitude Debit and PayAttitude Prepaid depending on a customer’s preference. The introduction of this technology only reinforces our commitment to the creation of innovative payment solutions.”
“A major benefit of the new payment solution is that all payments are always 100 per cent successful with or without network connectivity, thereby eliminating the issue of “declined” payments on POS terminals. It thus guarantees subscribers the confidence and comfort of always being able to pay for goods and services at merchant locations at all times notwithstanding network challenges.”
