Visa believes that the certification is a major victory for mobile device manufacturers, as it will give them the ability to expand the mobile commerce industry. As with other mobile technologies, such as QR codes, NFC relies heavily on consumer awareness. If people do not know how to use the technology, or that it even exists, they are likely to shy away. With payWave coming pre-equipped on new smart phones from these companies, more consumers will get hands-on experience with the technology and may grow more accepting of mobile commerce as a whole.
