Almost 10 million US people use Apple Pay every week

Watching Apple since 1999. I don't say what they should do. I say what they might do. They sometimes do.

    There are many shops that actually have the right NFC terminals, but the workers there don’t even know that they work. Just this week I made some purchases at a Osco Drug counter in a Jewel supermarket (in the Chicago area), and I noticed the NFC symbol on the card reader. So instead of using my chip credit card, I used my iPhone, which is way faster. The cashier asked “how did you do that?” When I told her, she replied that she didn’t know that you could use ApplePay at their store.

    Jonny, Tim Cook recently reported that Apple absolutely dominates ALL contactless payments in the USA (contactless credit cards as well as mobile wallets) with a 75% market share, so not sure what you mean by “it is not the most used platform”?

    Also, Wristly reports that 80% of Apple Watch users have tried Apple Pay and 95% of Apple Watch owners report they would use Apple Pay if it were available in more locations.

    I think Apple is in a pretty good position here.

    Sy, I’ve experienced something similar at T-Mobile. I’ve had theft of my credit information at T-Mobile, so I do everything to avoid using my plastic at retailers and online. To date, T-Mobile won’t let me use my ApplePay account online and doesn’t even advertise that they accept ApplePay. I had to prompt the T-Mobile rep to let me attempt to pay my bill with its NFC terminal. When it worked the remark was “wow, didn’t know we had that yet!”
