Alternatively, nearly 25% of US retailers already support Apple Pay.
Like the first iphone...we have to wait for 2-3 years to be global, i can't wait Not to use my credit card anymore
Don't forget that in many countries the BANKS control the possible payment methods NOT the retailers or shops. I doubt that "Apple" has a lot of influence there. Let's not forget that most banks have had their own ios/android-payment-app for quite some time now, so why the heck would they suddenly go for a third party payment system that's beyond their control? Secondly no matter what they all claim, electronic payment always comes at a cost. A cost usually paid by the shop and transferred into higher shopping-prices. I think that the few retailers who jump on that apple-bandwagon are doing it out of their own pockets due to non-support from their local bank.
Besides I don't want to pay more for a supposed convenience when it is just as easy to pay with real money. Especially in europe which is already been milked by every-jack-shit on the planet. E.g. why do I have to 300$ for a 200$ Meizu phone???? I already pay massively for gasoline compared to everywhere else on this planet. Oh, and let's not forget that we already pay a monthly (or yearly) fee for banking-costs for our own accounts?
