Singapore-based mobile network StarHub has launched NFC payments services to its customers. The wallet has been developed by EZ-Link and runs on MasterCard PayPass technology.

StarHub, EZ-Link and the BIN sponsor DBS Bank, are part of the consortium which received the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore’s brief to develop an interoperable mobile NFC infrastructure for the country.

SmartWallet will offer users a virtual DBS MasterCard card called One.Tap. “DBS regards the mobile platform as an important customer touchpoint,” said Sim S Lim, Country Manager of DBS Singapore. “The introduction of more highly sophisticated NFC enabled smartphones will make it easier for our customers to adopt this new technology.

“We are well-positioned to drive the adoption of NFC island-wide.”
