Apple in payments

Hello all,

I am not sure how many have seen this but I think it’s worth noting that Apple has made their first (baby) steps towards payments.

They will now offer a payment service on iPhone, only in Apple Store to scan a barcode and pay for the item on the spot. It overs some “specifically selected accessories” too.

Cautious first step that will make many tremble. Nice article here:

Update

Another interesting article about Apple in payments is this one:

A Point of view that Apple will not play in NFC but will try to enforce a “pay with iTunes account” even for non Apple merchants. Clearly a long stretch in my mind but if Apple comes up with a stellar user experience it may happen.

Sincerely again

David Pardo
