Just got the S4 on Three and need to help setting up contactless payments.

Any advice?

Not sure we are ready for contactless payments in the UK, we don't yet have the tech in place? I could be wrong though.

It is also good for giving money to friends when you owe them money and there isn't a bank nearby.

Pubs and shops have wireless payment but usually only by card, haven't heard of many phones being able to do it. I think Orange had teamed up with Barclaycard to enable it?

It appears the only currently available app for contactless payment on a phone is a samsung S3, barclaycard, orange sim configuration.

I think one is meant to be coming out by visa but that has yet to appear.t

Read an article recently about Vodafone staff trialling their mobile payments app, think it said that customers of any network can use it when launched.

And Visa on the S4.

It will become more common place this year i think with others trialling contactless payments as well.

First of all thanks for all the replies.

I think l have found a way to do contactless payments on the S4. There is an app called 02 Wallet, that will allow you to top up a virtual card. It is open to users on any network.

Have stuck a tenner on it and will see what happens next time l am in a shop with a contactless payment terminal.

Will let you know what happens.

I read an article on it but it implied that visa was providing some form of app, but the banks would need to enable the function 'over the air' to enable payments to work.

I would be interested to know from an S4 owner if this is now an out of the box capability.

My HTC One is NFC enabled and I also have a Barkleys account. I have downloaded the Barkleys Pingit app. Can I use contactless payment or do I have to be with Orange?

Wetherspoons, Co-op, Subway, KFC, McDonalds, and Asda now have contactless, as well as lots of other places I can't remember.

There are quite a few places supporting contactless payment, but right now there is almost no support for smartphones to use it. The focus is on debit/credit card holders.

I'm not sure why there is a delay unless there are security concerns (that seems to be what visa are working on).

Are you sure? As the 02 Virtual Card in the 02 Waller app has the Contactless Wireless Logo.

If I read it right. You can get a physical contactless card from visa (O2) which can then be linked to the app.

That part of my phone is disabled, nothing available for it, so no point in having it enabled.
Contactless payment have taken a long time to get going in this country, i think it will be a few years yet before the apps are available for it.

My bank have not even sent out Contactless cards around here yet.


i would think paying with a mobile phone ism more time consuming than with a card or cash even. some people have enough problems just getting the thing out of standby.
