Tap Your Phone, Make Your Purchase, Let All Your Social Media Friends Know with Bling Nation @ CES 2011

With Bling Nation, a simple tap of your phone not only pays for your in-store item, but announces to all your Facebook friends your proud purchase. By using a “bling tag,” a sticker with an embedded NFC chip placed on your phone, you can pay for store items, redeem coupons, get a discount, rake up loyalty points, and have it all updated to your Facebook account. Merchants too can keep track of all these transactions, and have the opportunity to turn your friends into new customers.

At CES 2011, Smallbiztechnology.com spoke with Wences Casares of Bling Nation about their mobile payment platform.
