Clarissa Wilson: The “Internet of Things” is now becoming the “Internet of Payments.”

The future is here. The “Internet of Things” is now becoming the “Internet of Payments.” This means that, although this has been talked about for as long as 10 years or more now, thanks to MasterCard, we can make payments for things with a swipe of the wrist or a tap of a button on our smartphone, smartwatch, or even smart car.

According to Mashable, making payments for the things we buy or the services we use with our smartphone, smartwatch, or smart car, is safe and secure. Not only is it safe, but paying for things with something like eCash is also convenient. No more having to rush to the bank and hoping it is open so you can make a car payment, mortgage payment, or any other bill you have. Of course, we do have ATMs but the Internet of Payments can be used on any device that is connected to the internet. There is even a refrigerator available now that allows you to order groceries from the comfort of your home. How awesome is that?
