UK: RBS Tests Contactless Debit at HQ
RBS ran a small trial among employees at its Edinburgh headquarters using a PayPass debit application. The trial was to last just a couple of months and lead to a second phase with real customers.
RBS has not been very aggressive with either contactless card or NFC technology, especially compared with its rival Barclaycard and parent Barclays bank.
