In case you’re wondering what the name means: I guess it is derived from from ‘currency’. Currency - CurrentC. I thought first that the first C and the last C are supposed to merge into ‘CC’, which is usually an abbreviation for credit card. Anyway it is not likely to be a catchy name outside the English-speaking world.
Disclaimer: while I was able to test Apple Pay myself and so write about it from my own experience, this article is written only based on knowledge gained from various sources on the Internet, dealing with CurrentC. CurrentC is only available to a select few for the time being.
Let’s have a look at the four areas which illustrate how CurrentC works.
Two from the customer’s point of view, two from an expert point of view.
1. Paying with CurrentC from the customer’s perspective
2. The registration process from the customer’s perspective
3. What happens in the background – part 1 – when a customer registers?
4. What happens in the background – part 2 – when a customer pays for something?
Here you can see how Apple Pay works, in case you want to compare.
1. This is how you can use CurrentC in your daily life.
In order to pay with CurrentC, you have to 1. Unlock your phone, 2. Open the app, 3. Enter your 4- digit Passcode, 4. tap the PAY button, 5. open scanner and Scan code (or enter a code manually) OR 5. tap the SHOW button and allow the cashier to scan your Passcode.
Show it to the cashier. Really.
