Here’s a good trial of NFC m-payments in an entertainemtn environment. The whole scheme seems to focus on the consumer first including cashing-out and theft of cards. Well done Vodafone and good luck.
During the 18th edition of the festival, a number of Vodafone customers will also be able to make NFC-based payments using NFC-enabled phones, while all festival-goers will receive a NFC-based Sziget-card as a gift at the entrance. The card can be topped-up at a number of places using cash or credit cards. Money remaining on the card can be redeemed at the end of the festival at all recharging spots. Should the card get lost or stolen, registered card-owners can ban the card, and get back the money that has not yet been spent until the ban.
