MacDailyNews Take: Excellent.

Apple, give us a reason to use Apple Pay beyond looking like tech dorks in front of the line at the register. What’s the incentive to use Apple Pay? There is none besides looking like a flaming nerd. As if Apple doesn’t have any money. That, inexplicably, is how they approach Apple Pay. Hello, Tim? Eddy? Talk to some people who actually go to stores and shop for things, please.

Incentivize its use! Give Apple Pay users a percentage of every dollar spent via Apple Pay to spend at Apple Stores. Something. Anything! Get people used to using it first. Sheesh. It’s really not that difficult. It really isn’t. — MacDailyNews, August 6, 2015


    1. Neither do Apple’s thinness- and fashion-fixated designers.

      I wonder if there are any Apple Pay exclusive offers for weight-loss programs? Or clothes that are so thin that no-one can put them on?

  1. What I want to know is where are all the websites offering to pay with Apple Pay? IRRC Apple announced the ability to pay for goods on a website via Apple Pay a good time ago. I haven’t seen that at all. What happened?
