Near Field Communications

Near Field Communications

Fiscal Service accepts the increasingly-popular contactless payment methods such as Apple Pay, Android Pay, and Samsung Pay at select government sites.

Through the Card Acquiring Service, these services leverage Near Field Communication (NFC), a wireless standard allowing customers to pay with their mobile devices by hovering it near a terminal.

Customers can “check out” with these payment methods at participating locations, including: National Park Service sites and Defense Commissaries.

Treasury also offers this functionality on-the-go via our mobile app for federal agencies, FedRevCollect. The mobile app is an integral part of the Fiscal Service’s Electronic Commerce (eCommerce) goal to increase the volume of electronic collections by offering new and innovative payment technologies currently available in the private sector.

The Fiscal Service, which also accepts Digital Wallets (PayPal and Amazon Pay) and offers several other mobile products, seeks to provide a full suite of electronic payment options to the public.
