M1 joined Singtel and StarHub as the 3rd mobile operator in Singapore to provide NFC enabled SIM cards.
M1′s 2 million subscribers can use their NFC devices equipped with M1′s NFC SIM card to make mobile payments at any EZ-Link or PayPass POS in Singapore.
The company’s users will have the option to download 2 NFC services – the EZ-link CEPAS, which can be used with EZ-Link POS and the prepaid MasterCard M1 which is working with PayPass terminals.
Both services, as well as a variety of compatible devices, including the Sony Xperia S, Samsung Galaxy S3 and the Samsung Galaxy S Advance are available to all M1 stores.
M1 has also launched a Mobile Wallet app that allows users to manage their NFC settings and accounts, such as payments, password control, transaction history and default cards.
Future NFC services will allow users to receive promotional contents form NFC posters, redeem coupons and earn loyalty points.
