RETAIL: Elisa’s contactless payment sticker can be bought at convenience stores

Finnish carrier Elisa has introduced reloadable NFC payment stickers that are available to purchase from the R-Kioski convenience store chain pre-loaded with €20 of value. The MasterCard-branded stickers work with the carrier’s Elisa Lompakko wallet service and are available in a range of designs.

To purchase a sticker, consumers must be at least 15 years old and need to provide a Finnish social security number and a Finnish mobile phone number from any carrier.

“Pre-loaded stickers sold at R-Kioski are immediately ready to use, as you can activate them via SMS,” says Elisa’s Henri Korpi. “The service is completely mobile.”
