    NFC Mobile Payments Service Go live in Beijing 

    Last month, China Mobile has partnered with China UnionPay to introduce an NFC mobile payments service, which will be commercially launched on public transport in Beijing next week, according to CCTV News.

    The launch follows a trial period in June that was conducted on the Beijing Bus network. The service now also works on the subway and is expected to be expanded to airports, schools and other locations.

    To use the service, subscribers with an NFC handset need an NFC SIM card, available from six of the carrier’s stores, and to download the network’s mobile wallet app. After linking a bank account, the customer will be able to pay for public transport tickets as well as for goods and services at participating merchants equipped with China UnionPay Quick Pass contactless POS terminals.

    Rapid Development of ETC RFID system in Beijing 

    RFID ETC SYSTEMETC (electronic toll collection) RFID system is a better solution for urban traffic congested problems. China operated ETC RFID system for trial since 2004 at Chinese south-eastern coastal areas, despite a marked effect to solve congestion; the system did not receive widespread coverage. For the car owners to enjoy an express ETC RFID service, they need to pay 450 Chinese Yuan (about 70 US Dollars) to buy a RFID car tag, which is the reason they would rather choose to waiting in a long queue to pay by cash.

    Huaxia Bank, a small Chinese bank, their Beijing branch with Beijing Highway Electronic Toll System Co., Ltd. lunched a joint bank card called “Sutong Card”. Registered user of “Sutong card” can enjoy 5% off discount of high-way tolls by use ETC RFID system and the user’ highway tolls automatically transfer from “Sutong Card” accounts. Most important, user of “China-speed Card” will receive RFID car tag free of charge.

    As far as I know, the total number of ETC RFID users in Beijing is about 170,000 by earlier this year, but 30,000 “Sutong Card” has already issued within 45 days of card launched. Consider there are 5 million vehicles registered in Beijing city, I believe a huge market prospects for ETC RFID system.
