  1. The issues you have with mobile payments aren't the fault of the app platforms, it's the fault of your damn country being so slow adopting NFC payments. You people haven't even got chip and PIN everywhere yet, I dread to think how long it will be until you have wide availability of NFC payments. Meanwhile, the U.K. has contactless terminals almost everywhere, contactless ATMs are starting to appear and the VAST majority of people have contactless bank cards, even if they don't yet use mobile payments. This isn't because of some dark British magic or socialism or something, it's just because we move with the times.

  2. In india our government start aeps service to pay only with your thumb impression you only need to have your 12 number aadhar card number in india(which is linked to your bank account) plz do a review for it.

  3. It's so weird to hear NFC isn't widely available in US, In Australia NFC
    is everywhere it has been like that for over 10yrs. In Australia
    Contactless Payments make up 98% of transactions , Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, Android Pay are available in Australia when this video was made hehe.

    But Apple Pay is having a tough time in Australia with 3 of major banks taking apple to ACCC (Govt Tribunal ) Final decision will be handed down in few weeks, if it goes against the banks which unlikely, as Banks have modified their petition to specific access to iphone NFC. But some small chance ACCC sides with Apple it won't be binding on the banks to offer its 5 million plus Customer base ApplePay.

  4. THE APPLE COMPANY IS YOUR AVERAGE PIECE OF SHIT AND THEN LEVEL 1 THE "SCREW THE APPLE COMPANY" WHICH IS THE IPHONE AND LEVEL 2 THE "WHAT A WASTE OF TIME" LEVEL AS EVERY OTHER APPLE PRODUCT

  5. Seem like all the mobile pay will not work if you have a chip on your credit card or debit. It requires you to insert your credit card in the terminal. Whereas the old credit card that doesn't have a chip on their card, makes it much more convenient because you don't have to pull your card all the time.
    Anyone having the same problem like me??? It defeats the purpose of having mobile pay if it doesn't work.

  6. paying like thus is just a gimmick that doesn't have much use in the grand scheme of things. Cash is still the most reliable form of currency and a card is much more widely accepted

  7. I can say Samsung Pay can replace a credit card because it works almost everywhere that accepts a credit card and works without stores upgrading their hardwears. However theres is few downside to all mobile payment solutions, first, they work most of the time but sometimes it froze up the store's computer. Second, again it sometime just doesnt work, it just says !error!, but it usually works after few tries (only if the cashier kind enough to let you do that) THIRD, I encounter this the most, cashiers will tell you it doesn't work, but it all ended up working fine. This is all because cashiers aren't familiar with this new technology and their misconception of need to upgrade their hardware in order for this "new" technology to work.

  8. one thing reviewers keep forgetting to mention about samsung pay. if you are planning to use samsung pay mst, because nfc is not available, on a card with chip technology then samsung pay will not work. in the usa, all banks are sending their customers updated credit cards with chip technology and more store are accepting chipped credit cards which essentially makes mst worthless.
