    Another trend on the way with tapping phones hitting the masses. Especially with Google Wallet launching and NFC phones becoming the norm. Here are a few of my best. Most have gone. "Tag" is also a key word... Anyone else have any?

    Only cloud and 3d had/had more legs. I don't see anything in Tap. I thought it was BUMP and then it was BUMPLESS.

    How do you stop someone with a Tap processor going up and reverse tapping a device?

    Yes, bump was used early on but didn't stick. Tap has been adopted by Google and Apple etc. and seems to have come out in front. I know where my bets are.

    securetap.com??
    I do have safe-tap.com

    Good to have the constructive criticism though. :blink:

    TAP.mobi

    Although the extension only sees a few good sales a month I think this one is worth some $$$$$

    Congrats D-K, not bad at all! Personally I feel there will not be too many big sales related to tap and pay, but I could be wrong.

    what about wave and swipe - tap implies physical contact.

    I don't believe you need the physical contact for NFC to work, though the TAP and TAG appear to be the NFC buzz words. 'Tap your phones to become friends or share contact info'.

    These articles confirm that...

    - http://www.usatoday.com/tech/news/story/2012-01-08/cnbc-near-field-communication-mobile/52443756/1

    Interesting to note from first article where content sharing could pave the way for NFC payments...

    ---------- Post added at 08:33 PM ---------- Previous post was at 08:25 PM ----------

    It's probably obvious i'm excited with the potential of NFC. So I have hand reg'd a few more... If you're keeping up with the news you'll see what I mean.

    Hmmm. That's a lot of domains. Not that you asked for advice, but I'd recommend slowing down and concentrating only on the .com flavor. Otherwise, TAP and TAG are good keywords right now, highly relevant to the mobile growth space.

    Hi thanks for the articles.

    The problem I see with this field is this: it will happen, but will it just be a few big, trusted players? People like Visa don't need new domain names, let alone aftermarket ones. What related businesses or services would actually exist and want domain names? So to me the social aspect, gaming, and interacting with objects via RFID sound the most interesting.

    And to me it is not clear yet which keyword is tops, or whether domainers can make money here.

    2012 is being billed as the contactless Olympics - referring to payments, not sports!
    http://www.marketingweek.co.uk/sect...consumer-education-programmes/3033341.article

    Here is an informative industry site, nice use of a domain name too:

    contactless.info

    I agree with Carob. I think its to early to know if "tap" will become a main keyword.

    And registering all those .info's is just throwing money out the window in my opinion.

    Some will see that as on opportunity to get domains that might be worth a lot later, but there just seem to be too many possible words and phrases - you have to take a shotgun approach and I agree, firing a shotgun at .info won't get you a lunch.

    Check this out - they seem to own quite a few related domains: http://www.wavetrust.com/main.html as well as running this

    http://www.tapbase.com which claims

    Wave and Swipe are much better words for this and seem to be popular if you look at related phrases in Google

    Tap is ok, but when combined with the word phone, does remind me of "tapping your phone" or "phone taps"

    There might be numerous words adopted with tech, and that gives numerous companies a shot and getting a nice name, and a domainer a nice chance to make a little $$$

    This isn't mine but it is a nice example of a generic in use

    http://www.contactless-payments.co.uk/

    And here is a consumer info site about making payments:

    http://www.payyourway.org.uk

    But I still don't know if all these payments will be handled just by a few big players. A while ago I remember seing an item that plugs into an iphone that will swipe cards and take payments - basically a mobile paypoint, great for people who trade outdoors.

    I will have to read the links to find out even what this is...

    Even so this is huge investment in "taping" domains. I would ask myself, "why do I need this domain name?"

    Who are you expecting your buyers to be?

    I suppose with the explosive growth of technology and social media right now any of this is possible and likely already old news. However it is way too risky for me.

    Have you approached any potential end users yet or is it still too early?
