Digital Payment News:  While consumers may be hesitant to begin using digital wallets due to security concerns, companies like NX-ID, Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL), Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) and eBay's PayPal (NASDAQ: EBAY) are striving to create platforms that erase all worries and allow for optimum efficiency. The trend of digital payments has begun abroad and is only growing. Even though the technology, also known as near field communication has been around for several years now, it's only recently that contactless cards have started gathering pace. Last year, a report by Juniper Research said that 249 million cards will be used for contactless payments in 2014, driven by rising adoption in countries like the UK, Australia, Canada and Poland. In Britain alone, spending via contactless payment cards hit £109.2 million last March, up three times compared to a year ago.
