    Can we please name vendors that are accepting Apple Pay but then at the register asking to see ID, asking the customer to then pick up a stylus and sign and other things like that - which vendors are accepting Apple Pay but not trusting the security or implementing the sale closure according to the way Apple have described it? Thanks!

    Why would merchants care about the security of Apple Pay? It completely takes the burden off them and puts it on the banks and Apple.

    Also depending on your card issuer you can tell the cashier to pound sand if they ask for ID. For most cards it violates the merchant agreements.

    Yes it's crazy, but what can you do if the cashier just says you have to mess around with their germ covered plastic stylus and sign your name, you can scribble any doodle, it's never looked at by anyone, does nothing to protect anyone but it's a little ritual that I had hoped to avoid with Apple Pay. It's also unfortunately commonplace here in Orlando, because of the amount of tourists for many vendors to ask anyone, even locals paying with US cards for photo ID and again, what can you do, they are programmed to refuse to close the sale if you don't play along . . . . .

    that's going to be problematic in some countries. e.g. in Spain all merchants ALWAYS ask for ID when paying by debit/credit card. Even when using contactless credit cards.

    It's silly.

    This is a function of the retailer's credit card policy not their response to Apple Pay.

    Just as some retailers will allow purchases of up to $50 just by swiping the card and no signature required, others require a signature for every credit card transaction.

    This is not unique to ApplePay.
