Apple Pay vs. MCX CurrentC

This might be the reason MCX retailers won’t let you use Apple Pay, even if they want to

Apple’s Apple Pay is a successful new product for the company, with the payment solution having needed just a week to become more popular than all other mobile payment platforms combined, at least in the U.S. That said, not all retailers are eager to let customers pay with an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus in their stores, with the MCX group — which includes Walmart, Best Buy, Sears, Target, Gap, CVS, Rite Aid, and many others — not supporting Apple Pay at this time.

The New York Times has apparently learned the one thing that’s keeping many of these stores from supporting Apple Pay right now, though MCX is somewhat disputing it. More →

Has Apple found the perfect weapon to fight both Walmart and Amazon?

Apple is edging closer to declaring an all-out war against mega retailers like Walmart, Best Buy and CVS with its payment system.
