Why NFC is Irrelevant To the Mass Market

Why NFC is Irrelevant To the Mass Market | TechPinions:

“Humans are creatures of habit. Keeping a number of credit cards in a wallet or purse and pulling out the correct one to make a purchase is not a massive inconvenience for many. The challenge with NFC is that its value proposition is only to replace credit cards in a commerce market. That is the only process it is addressing in a retail environment. Retailers have much more pressing problems to worry about. Like consumers using their stores to showroom and then go and buy online. Or other retailers rigorously competing to steal loyal customers, etc.

I am more interesting in technologies or opportunities to completely revolutionize the shopping experience. This is something NFC does not address.”

NFC is a solution in search of a problem.
