WHO CARES ABOUT 1,000 ISSUERS IF ONLY A HANDFUL OF STORES ACCEPT APPLE PAY????!!!!

The ones that do, half of them don't work or the clerks have no idea how to use the terminals.

How about using that tremendous cash surplus to have a field team train employees and make sure the terminals are functional???

I don't know what training needs to be done for clerks, since it looks like a credit card transaction on their side, but Apple can't force companies to turn on NFC at POS. Be upset at the stores, not Apple, for that.

Let me make sure I understand what you are demanding. You want Apple to go to Petco and train their employees how to use Apple Pay, correct? What else are you going to blame Apple for? How about that famine in Africa? After all, Apple claims to be very humanitarian. With all those billions of dollars, Apple could buy enough MacDonald burgers to feed all the hungry people in the world.

I had a FedEx delivery from Amazon yesterday that got screwed up. I just know Apple was to blame for that. There is a new board game coming out for many of you to enjoy. It's called "Let's Blame Apple". You throw the dice, move your marker, and it will land on a square with a description of a problem. You then yell "Let's Blame Apple" and then move on to the next player. It's a real life game. It's happening right here in these very forums.

Meanwhile, in Canada, only Amex supports it....Give me a green card and I'll move. Stupid backward country.
What's in it for Canadian banks - they already offer the most secure credit / debit cards in the world and have for years. Unlike the US banks that are just starting to roll out chip & pin cards this year, Canadian banks have been issuing them for like 5 years with all of them having the Tap-and-Go feature. Furthermore, the government capped the fees that Visa & MasterCard can charge merchants so they're not in any hurry to give up a share of their profits. Are US banks capped on the fees they charge merchants? What percentage of the population in Canada currently own an iPhone 6 and up?

One of the great things about living in Canada ... you're free to leave anytime ... bye, bye.

Yeah, this is where I am with Apple Pay - a non-user. I don't even bother trying. I think I got about 2 successful transactions off of it, and after that, just wound up holding up the line when it didn't work. I will likely never try it again, because if it only works in 5% of the transactions during a day, why bother.

MAYBE, if Gas pumps started using it, then i'd give it another go. But, for now, even at places where I know it works (liek Firehouse Subs, where it worked 2 out of 3 times), i'll just revert to the ol' standby of handing someone my stupid card.

The tech is way to new. It's like trying to send an email to someone in the 1970's. Safer to use stamps.
