***Announcement: Early next week, we’ll be merging the current Fios and Wireless Communities into the all new Verizon Community!

Additional details can be found in the Announcements board and under Featured Topics!
Setup payment by NFC

What do I need to do to enable payment by using NFC scanners in stores? I've enabled NFC on my phone, (tap to pay ON).

The setup page has the text "You must have a payment SIM for this to work." Is this referring to a separate SIM that I need to put in the sim memory card slot? Or, do I need to get a new SIM card for the phone from Verizon that is set up for NFC payments?

Which phone model do you have?

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

RonMcK3, I love using the NFC feature to make payments. If you still have the HTC 8 your phone supports NFC use. However, that is usually for sharing files over Bluetooth. Does this help? >>
