Expect shipping to be around December if you order one now.
Visa’s payment ring, which we had reported earlier, is now longer limited to Rio bound athletes. Now just about anybody can pre-order Visa’s NFC Ring, which allows you to make payments at its many store terminals without you having to pull out your wallet or your phone.
In case you want to snag one, just plunk down $53 to get one to fit in your finger. Expect shipping dates to be in December.
Once you acquire it, you will not need your phone, wallet or cards to make payments. Visa’s ring uses anonymizing tokens to make payments all by itself.
Although the system is far more subtle than any existing payment method, its not flawless, it supposedly prefers that you hold the ring at angle for best results.
