Default [Q] NFC Location

Hello all. When using Google Wallet, I slide my phone slowly up and down until the reader accepts the phone as a payment method. Recently, Google Wallet has not been working and I am not sure why. Would anyone be able to enlighten me as to where the NFC chip/antenna is so that I don't have to slide my phone up and down on the readers? Also, I have the silly NFC Enhanced SIM card from Verizon, but isn't that only needed for ISIS?

Any help would be wonderful. Thank you!

PS, I am STOCK ROOTED running Android 4.4.2 and Xposed.
