    So if somehow devs are able to get the NFC in the iPhone's to work with Google wallet...then all cards are basically tap n pay...right now instead of waiting on companies to get on board with AP.

    Ok... apparently you don't understand how this whole thing works. Any location that accepts google wallet? Already accepts apple pay.

    The technology for both is NFC based contact-less payment... so anywhere you can use google wallet? you can already also use apple pay. There's no waiting for anyone to get onboard... (except for maybe you as I'm guessing you don't have an iPhone 6/6+ as you don't seem to understand it).

    :rolleyes:

    Sorry mate I don't think you understand how it is working at the moment

    Last time I checked there where no banking institutions outside the usa which have cards that currently work with Apple pay.

    To even activate Apple pay we need to change the region USA, and only USA cards can be used

    It is obvious What the OP meant by "waiting for companies to get on board" he means the banks

    Access to NFC via Google wallet would solve this short term for us non Americans but is unlikely to happen (jail broken or not)

    Cheers

    Europeans already complain when the NSA gets all their information. Now they want to give Google who is a known grifter of people's personal information and who is known to feed the information to the US government all their purchasing info.

    Yup. US only... but that is simply a factor of where Apple has chosen to release ApplePay. I can take my iPhone and go pay via ApplePay ANYWHERE in the US (OR ABROAD!!) that accepts NFC payment. I can pay in ANY location that accepts google wallet because the technology is exactly the same.

    The OP didn't say anything about not having a US based card. Their OP implied that ApplePay was not accepted in the same locations that accept google wallet and that premise is patently false.

    That's fair enough mate, I suppose I just read it from the perspective of someone from a country without access to Apple pay and you vice versa

    I know your right of course, the point of sale isn't the problem. But when u get to the nitty gritty my mate can go to maccies or wherever with his samsung and pay that way, whilst me, with my 6+ Cannot, essentially I think that what the op was trying to say

    Personally I am happy using my card when out and about,I don't partically fancy waving my phone around like a tit when I am getting a Starbucks or whatever. I am just looking forward to its implementation for online shopping. Often I setup a purchase and go running around my house looking for my wallet! :)

    Cheers

    Yes, I mean the banks. For instance, I have several cards attached to my wallet account...only one works with apple pay. If somehow a hack is made that allows me to tap n pay with the cards I have in wallet using my iPhone would be great.

    I doubt a hack will be able to go around your banks or apples restrictions.
    I don't see Google wallet being made compatible with the ios NFC system.

    Actually, it is certain banks and their processing partners that don't currently support Apple Pay Tokenization; not that Apple Pay doesn't support your bank. Therefore the solution cannot be a jailbreak, which does nothing to that process.

    I definitely recommend the OP reads this:

    If that is TL: DR, here are the most important take-away's related to the OP:
