I tried to use my fairphone 4 to do contactless payment, by registering a bank card on an app, (Lyf pay) but the app refuse it because the fairphone is not on the EMVCO list a devices compatible for contactless payment. (i tried VISA and Matercard cards)
I didn’t try Google Pay, but i read that they use the same EMVCO list.
Did someone manage to use fairphone 4 for contactless payment ? Can i hope the fairphone 4 will be added to this list one day ? or will it never be compatible ?
J’ai voulu enregistrer ma CB sur mon Fairphone 4 pour faire du paiment sans contact, (avec l’application Lyf Pay) mais c’est refusé par l’application, car le fairphone n’est pas sur la liste EMVCO des téléphones compatibles avec le paiment sans contact. (j’ai essayé avec des cartes VISA et Mastercard)
Je n’ai pas essayé d’autre application (Google Pay) mais j’ai lu qu’elles se basent sur cette même liste.
Est-ce possible de faire du payment sans contact sur un Fairphone 4 ? Puis-je espérer qu’il soit rajouté sur le liste EMVCO prochainement ?
And about add fairphone4 on emvco list, required for other apps, Fairphone team add it to their desired list, and are currently investing it. I hope they will manage to do it soon, but I have no idea how complex it is, and how many time it could take.
As a side note, the status is exactly the same w/ FP3.
Not EMVCo certified but Google Pay is working fine.
It’s just a pity that it implies that mobile payment is not possible on FP3 for most French banks customers.
Since the FP3 has been released for years now, I’m affraid it will never be certified.
I’ve just been able to enable contactless payment on LyfPay on my FP3 with my MasterCard issued by the French bank Credit Mutuel. (enabled but not yet tested though)
I got an update of LyfPay just before but I cannot tell if it’s related.
Thanks for the update, unfortunately on my FP4, it is still not working. (i got also the LyfPay app update). But if it has changed for the FP3, that give me hope that one day it could change also for the FP4…
