Las Vegas, Oct. 25, 2016 — Ingenico ePayments, the online and mobile commerce division of Ingenico Group, and Ingenico Labs, its innovation department, have jointly developed a completely new way to make secure online payments on a mobile device, simply by tapping a payment card against it. TapHero is a new, experimental technology that combines elements from both Card-Present and Card-not-Present payments, and will enable smartphones equipped with an NFC reader to simply read the payment data from the card’s chip and auto-populate all the fields required to make a mobile payment. Furthermore, Ingenico is adding a feature layer that simulates a card-present payment, for increased security. The company will show a live demo of TapHero at booth #2612 during the Money20/20 conference, which takes place in Las Vegas from October 23-26, 2016. General availability is planned for 2017.
