Bank of America to issue contactless stickers next year

Bank of America plans to issue contactless stickers to its credit and debit card customers next year, PaymentsSource reports:

“Offering contactless debit cards and payment stickers is another step in” BofA’s push to add “more convenient, more secure and faster” payment types, David Owen, the company’s payment products executive, said through a spokesman Monday.

Bank of America is currently conducting a field trial in New York in partnership with Visa of DeviceFidelity‘s microSD format NFC solution. “Our particular trial at this point is a little less focused on, say, the given technology and a lot more focused on the customer experience, as we feel that’s what is going to be one of the keys to driving the adoption,” the bank’s Michael Upton told Bank Info Security last month.
