Abstract

In this paper, we present the development of Near Field Communication (NFC) for future mobile payment systems. NFC is expected to become a very trendy technology for mobile services, more specifically for mobile payments. The objective of our paper is to develop the prototype of myRapid payment system using NFC technology. In order to ensure the rigor of our research, we used a Mobile Application Development methods to develop the system. Our findings show that transport operators can also benefit from reduced operating and maintenance costs by cutting down on the use of paper tickets, ticket machines, ticket sellers, and even ticket collectors by using this system. It is shows that mobile with wireless technology helped to improve many activities like services and electronic commerce.
