Study shows iPhone owners open to mobile payments
A British study by research and consulting firm YouGov reveals that almost half of iPhone owners are open to making mobile payments.
46% of iPhone owners in the UK would be willing to pay bills using their iPhone
62% would transfer funds from one account to another
69% would check account balances
45% would feel comfortable making payments to other people. Those numbers bode well for companies like iZettle
and Square, who just released its Square Card Case
Despite this, only 31% of those polled reported that they would feel comfortable making contactless payments through near field communication
(NFC) technology. That could be due to the fact that people seem to have adistrust for the technology
, assuming that simply walking past a NFC reader will lead to your bank accounts being drained by some malevolent hacker.*
