Are you suggesting it hasn't?*

While Apple Pay might seem very successful it isn't even a drop in the ocean in terms of the number of payments that are made with credit and debit cards worldwide every day.

The question is whether people will swap the hundreds of millions of payment cards that are out there for something which only works with relatively expensive phones (I'm not just including iPhones when I say that). That is how the success or failure of NFC payments will be measured.

*I'm not saying it's failed here, just that it's far too soon to draw any conclusions.

My challenge is remembering to use Apple pay because most places I go to dont take it. For example, at CVS they have contactless payment which i tried but then find out apple pay doesnt work. Super annoying.

I'm guessing you missed the whole CVS / RiteAid NFC/CurrentC debacle??

I wish there was more detail. For instance:

- Some of these are simply adding NFC terminals.

- Some are adding Apple Pay support to their iOS store app.

- And some are adding iBeacons.

I'm suggesting that in a few months it has done more than google wallet has in a few years.
A lot of it is because of terminals being replaced in advance of the October EMV deadline.
