    Video shows how China Mobile’s RF SIM technology works at the point-of-sale

    A reporter from Chinese IT portal has produced a video report on China Mobile’s new RF SIM-based mobile payments service which shows the technology in action at a local supermarket.

    The video clearly demonstrates how the system works for China Mobile subscribers who use their mobile phones to make contactless payments in a store. Of particular interest is that:

    • The point-of-sale equipment includes a dock on which the mobile phone is placed whilst the transaction is processed (to ensure maximum readability?).
    • Customers authorise the transaction by signing a printed payments slip.

    Readers can view the full video on Zol’s website as well as a Chinese language report of the journalist’s experience, images of the printed receipt produced by the point-of-sale terminal and close ups of both the front and back of the reporter’s RF SIM card.
