After getting my bank account hacked from a hotel Wifi last year, and losing $1700 in the process, I will refuse to participate in any form of cell phone credit card service. No thank you sir. :no:

And that goes double for one that's in beta form. :lol:

Unless the new Chip based pin pads that all merchants are required to upgrade to by October already include a NFC reader no one is going to accept this.

And soon Mag strips won't even be accepted so even if there were a way to replicate a magnetic signal so this feature were compatibility with old style pin pads, it still won't be accepted.

Ok, Now this is getting stupid.

Yeah, let create 50 different phone payment services so everyone has something different. Stores are going to have to start putting up stickers all over their doors and windows on which ones they support. That's really going to help this be adopted.

I agree, not only is it stupid, it's also dangerous if stores don't have secured Wifi. Someone goes to make a payment using Samsung Pay, or Apple Pay, or whatever Pay, and gets hacked, bye bye store! :ange:
