Demonstrating ongoing leadership in mobile payment innovation, Intuit Inc. has developed a concept demo that reimagines its GoPayment mobile credit card processing application using near field communications (NFC). The company is showcasing the demo at the Google I/O developer conference in San Francisco today and tomorrow.

Built on Google's AndroidTMmobile platform and using NFC technology with Nexus S by Google, Intuit has transformed its existing GoPayment mobile credit card processing application into one that transfers credit card data via radio waves, eliminating the need for the actual card or any add-on card reader hardware.

Leveraging emerging mobile technology such as NFC, small businesses and their customers may one day soon be able to conduct a myriad of daily tasks on their mobile devices -- including paying and getting paid -- faster, easier and more securely. All they will need is their mobile device and nothing else.

Intuit is showing its application in the Developer Sandbox area, which highlights next-generation products. A video demo is also available online at: Blog.gopayment.com/.

Along with developing on the Android platform, Intuit recently announced that it's developing GoPayment for AndroidTM3.0-based tablets. It's expected to be available this summer.

Multiple Benefits
At Google I/O, Intuit will show how small business owners can use the GoPayment NFC application in multiple ways during their everyday operations - from adding inventory to completing a sale.

To add an item to inventory, a small business owner would simply tap their phone against a product with a smart tag. All information on that product would then appear in the mobile payment application.

Customers could also pay for products using a virtual debit card residing on their phone. To complete the purchase, the customer and small business owner would simply touch their phones together, eliminating the need to swipe a credit card. Plus, no actual credit card information is exposed during the transaction further protecting this sensitive data. Customers could use this same process to receive a receipt, or have a copy of the receipt sent automatically via email or text message.

The result is a faster, easier and more secure way to conduct business without the need for a physical credit card or credit card reader.

Innovating for Customer Needs
"With GoPayment we are exploring every avenue for innovation that best meets our customers' needs, and this includes technologies such as NFC that are still in the early stages of adoption," said Chris Hylen, vice president and general manager of Intuit's Payment Solutions division. "Innovation is happening rapidly in the mobile payment space and we want to be ready to help the millions of small businesses and consumers we serve benefit from the latest technology."

While the NFC integration with GoPayment is still in concept phase, Intuit is working to incorporate the technology as a feature in the offering in the near future. For more information, visit the Android area of the Developer Sandbox, which is on the 3rd Floor of Moscone West.
