Retailers who have implemented near field communication terminals will soon be able to give a record of the transactions to consumers in a new way.

Retailers who have implemented near field communication terminals will soon be able to give a record of the transactions to consumers in a new way.

The recently launched Proximant will send information from the payment terminal to a phone to process a record of the payment. The new[s] source reports that the location-based service is relatively new and allows “data exchanges over short distances.” The small device can be plugged directly into a cash register and a digital receipt will be recorded on the phone shortly thereafter.

“The product is a win-win for both retailers and consumers,” said Proximiant co-founder and CEO Fang Cheng. “Proximiant is the most efficient and secure way for retailers to extend their existing point of sale to an array of mobile loyalty and marketing programs without any IT overhead or customer signup process.”

Other big brands have been making news when it comes to NFC technology. Epic Mobiles reports that Starbucks will be introducing a mobile credit card terminal in its UK stores, after previously introducing it in the U.S.
