PayPal Android App includes NFC P2P

PayPal has announced an updated Android Ap which includes NFC functionality. The new Ap will allow Person to Person payment by bumping phones - providing both individuals have Android phones with the NFC capability and the appropriate Ap. The Ap has been given a facelift as well.



PayPal is still trying to live down a flippant remark by the CEO suggesting that NFC stood for 'Not For Commerce'. This is the first indication of PayPal's change of heart. There is as of yet no evidence of the company planning NFC for its forthcoming POS initiative.
