Finland: Internal Trial Tests PayWave
Internal trial enabled employees of Luottokunta, Visa and other companies involved in the trial to pay at cafeterias in office buildings and perhaps a few other acceptance points. For purchases under 20 euros, users can tap and go. Amounts over 20 euros require user authentication.
Luottokunta, a card processor and issuer for banks, is apparently leading the trial, but one wonders what it hopes to accomplish since the trial model has been tested many times before.
