Here is a quick comparison of iBeacon with other mobile payment technologies:

GeneralPhone can communicate to the cloud/online payment service provider without a signal (great for thick concrete walls, Victorian buildings)
GeofencingDrains battery life, less accurate, requires pre-selecting a limited number of locations, relies on Wi-Fi or cellular network
NFCRequires you to pull out phone to pay (slower to tap a phone), requires NFC-enabled phone
Regular BluetoothDrains battery
iBeaconiOS only
Other BeaconsiOS and Android
