The year is now 2013 and mobile technology is more popular than ever before. If you don’t own an iPhone, Android, or any type of smartphone then, quite frankly, you’re not in with the times. Along with lacking in the technology department, without a smartphone you will soon be without the convenience of easily paying your bill when you go out to a restaurant or nightclub in New York City, with the help of the mobile payment app MyCheck.
A recent Forbes article predicted that this year will be an exciting time for mobile payment apps. Last year saw an increased use in mobile payments and 2013 will be no exception to its growing popularity. Just in the ways that the fax machine was replaced by email scans, the magnetic strips of credit cards will soon be replaced with the scan bar on a cellphone.
Known as EMV (Europay, MasterCard and Visa), this new age of mobile payments works by using a “chip and pin” authentication system. The chip produces a unique code for every transaction, allowing you to easily trace a fraudulent charge. This technology has already been adopted about the world and now it’s time for the US to get on track with the help of MyCheck.
Mobile payments are actually more secure than paying with a credit card. Mobile payment apps require passwords, location services, serial number and other authentication factors to ensure security.
So, now the question becomes which mobile payment app do you use? Well, chances are you will use a variety of apps for different purposes, such as storing credit cards, using gift cards or conveniently paying the check when you want to leave a restaurant, nightclub or entertainment venue. Luckily, MyCheck has been introduced to merchants around NYC as an easy, quick, and convenient mobile payment app for seeing your bill, paying and leaving when you’re ready!
Download the app on your iPhone or Android and embrace a new era of mobile payments.
