Apple, instead of launching Apple Pay in the US, should have debuted it in the EU. Here where we have used NFC, contactless payments and chip and pin for over a decade. The exact opposite of the situation in the US. There would have been far less confusion, both from customers and cashiers. We wouldn't have had all these posts of, I tried to use Apple pay, but the cashier thought I was trying to do a Jedi mind trick, waving my iPhone about. Or I went to McDonalds and tried to use Apple Pay, but the cashier thought I was ordering apple pie. Or I tried to use Apple Pay, but the cashier took the phone off me and tried to swipe it. Also we wouldn't have had retailers disabling NFC so people couldn't use Apple Pay. Don't get me wrong. I do enjoy reading all these comedy of error threads. I just feel it's a waisted opportunity on Apples part, to launch Apple Pay properly. Because if Apple Pay isn't a success in the US. I doubt it will get a world wide launch. Many times I have left the house with my phone but without my wallet. Only to realise I need to buy something but was unable to. So I'm saying this to all you Yanks. Get your **** together. Make Apple Pay a success.
