Samsung should have renamed Samsung Pay as something else, and used a different company to push forward it's sales.
Is so much better than everything else out there, and if it wasn't named Samsung, other Android companies would have been tempted to use it too. Maybe even have an App on the iTunes store.
what exactly does this mean? why does google need to do so many partnerships with so many banks?
.alpha, 03 Oct 2017Just in the US alone Apple have 2063 banksIs this about bragging your Apple's achievements Fanboy? The main discussion talks on Google's partnership with the 1000 financial institutions. Lets keep it that way. Nobody cares.
td_sucks, 03 Oct 2017where is td and rbc google?Apple paid for exclusivity with those i beleive.
.alpha, 03 Oct 2017Just in the US alone Apple have 2063 banksTrue, but many US banks are rather small.
You realize, that TD and RBC make the decision if they want to join, not Google.
Integration of your bank has fees involved.
Before you complain, try to understand the business side. To my (limited) knowledge, Google makes money by charging the bank to be compatible with their product. TD and RBC have chosen not to invest into it but they did invest into Apple Pay.
I am with TD, so I am patiently waiting (for TD) to have Android Pay support.
