The innovators in payment systems are web savvy, nimble operations that are pushing the envelope in today’s payment system culture.

Google goes for loyalty, not payments at the check-out French eftpos terminal manufacturer Ingenico has confirmed that it has been contracted by Google to provide retailer check-outs with NFC hardware capable of redeeming discount coupons downloaded over an Android phone.
