The National Payment Card System (NSPK) tested payment in the SBPey application using NFC technology. Banks participating in the SBP and trade and service enterprises (TSP) conduct the necessary tests for further implementation of the technology on their side.
The technology involves options for devices for accepting payments using NFC on the merchant side. These can be stickers with an NFC tag, a vendor’s smartphone, or a special terminal that supports the NFC-TAG mode.” For the convenience of market participants, NSPK “is preparing an explanatory document on this payment scenario, which will be released shortly.
This technology makes payments through SBPey similar to ApplePay or GooglePay: you just need to bring your smartphone to the POS-terminal and confirm the payment on your phone. Now the service is much less convenient, it requires obtaining a QR code at the checkout, which not all cashiers are able to generate yet, even in merchants who have connected the service. Then you need to open the banking application on your smartphone, read the code and confirm the payment.
The contactless payment technology through SPBey is simpler and more convenient, but it requires certain costs from banks, so so far few have implemented the service. Formally, 105 banks are connected to SBPey, judging by its mobile application. All credit institutions with a universal license must connect before July 1. The Central Bank has already postponed the deadline once and does not intend to do it again.
However, for the mass introduction of payment through SBPey with a simple touch of a smartphone, it is necessary to refine the software (software) of the most popular types of POS terminals. Vendor companies developing software for them note the interest on the part of banks to connect contactless payment using SBPey, but it “does not yet become practical”.

A full-fledged WhatsApp client for Windows has finally been released. It can run in the background and doesn’t need to sync with your phone
What Viber and Telegram have had for a long time has finally appeared in WhatsApp: after a long period of beta testing, the messenger client for Windows has finally been released. The app is available for download from the Microsoft Store.

Less than a month is left before the release of the iPhone 14 series, while insiders leaked the design of the smartphone a long time ago, and the exact drawings that fell into the hands of accessory manufacturers made it possible to create three-dimensional models of new devices.
The main innovation of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will be new screens that will abandon the bangs that appeared in the iPhone X and get two small holes. We have already published a comparison of the screens of the iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro.
However, new smartphones will also receive once again an enlarged main camera unit. This time, it will not only be large in area, but also protrude more strongly above the surface of the rear panel (by as much as 4.17 mm).
The source published a comparison of the main camera modules of five generations of Apple smartphones: iPhone X, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro and the upcoming iPhone 14 Pro.
Recall that the size of the main camera block of the iPhone 14 Pro will be increased, in particular, due to the use of a new 48-megapixel camera.
According to rumors, new smartphones will be presented on September 7th.
