Are you tired of carrying around credit cards? So are your clients.
Good news for you and your practice: we may be getting closer to the day when they are no longer necessary. Thanks to a technology emerging in the U.S., soon we might all be able to pay using our cell phones. That's good news, because not only might that make your life more convenient, it could make it easier for your clients to pay you for legal services.
One of the top growing technologies this year is near field communication, or NFC. By adding an NFC chip into a cell phone, manufacturers give you the ability to use your phone at any tap-to-pay credit card machine. Right now, they are found most frequently at retail stores, but the day isn't far off where they could be widespread, TIME reports. You could soon have one sitting on your desk at your law office.
