Australia’s Commonwealth Bank has officially launched its Kaching mobile payments app for the iPhone, reports ZD Net.
Kaching enables Commbank customers to make contactless payments powered by MasterCard PayPass, as well as transfer funds to friends via Facebook and perform a number of mobile banking tasks.
The app works in tandem with Wireless Dynamics’ iCarte protective case, which contains an NFC chip that enables contactless payments. According to ZD Net, the iCarte case is available for $49.95.
