For people who don't have supporting banks.. Why can't you just simply get a credit card from any one of the hundreds of banks that already do (e.g. Capital One, Baryclays, etc) and simply pay it through you're existing checking account?
It's mainly a matter of convenience. I'd rather not pay interest on a credit card. I don't want to deal with numerous bank accounts. I'm happy with the financial terms of my home bank where I have a debit card; I'd just like it more if they'd instituted ApplePay. I currently use ApplePay occasionally with my current credit card, but that institution provides plenty of financial safeguards already. My debit card is much less secure; ApplePay with that card would make up for that.

It's great that the number of supporting banks is growing, but it's pointless if the service cannot be used in most places of business. The idea was that support would come as businesses replaced old POS to support PIN cards. With that said, I see new terminals at most stores now, yet none of them support NFC or the feature is disabled (Home Depot, Gas stations,etc.)

It's just a shame that such a great feature is going to waste.

See, I'm the opposite. I'll charge everything to my credit card. During the McDonald's free small coffee promo I had to pay like 25 cents to get a larger sized coffee.. "Charge it!". With the cash back rewards it's a no brainer. If you're going to spend the money anyway, you might as well charge it to a credit card and then pay the balance. As long as you pay the "last statement balance" you don't have to pay interest. It's not like you're doing a cash advance or a line of credit type of deal.

But I understand your frustration.

It's not the banks. It's the number of supporting retailers.
