When approaching the terminal owner iPhone just choose your smartphone card that you need to make a payment, identifies the transaction using the fingerprint reader Touch ID and immediately get a notification to hold a bank account.

When Apple in September announced the upcoming launch of Apple Pay, a California corporation also spoke about the concluded agreements with Visa, MasterCard and American Express, as well as the banking company Citi, Chase and Wells Fargo. Despite their support, Apple faces serious obstacles to the development of its payment service. Some retail stores still doubt whether they should work with Apple Pay or not.

For example, we already know that the leadership of the largest retail chains Walmart and Best Buy does not consider it appropriate implementation of payment service Apple. Bed, Bath & Beyond, department stores Sears, Kmart and Belk, brands H & M and Coach, grocery chain Publix and restaurants Chipotle, Pizza Hut and KFC also plans to soon introduce in their establishments to accept payments via Apple Pay. International coffee chain Starbucks sells its iOS-compatible applications from Apple Pay, but at the same time has no plans to install in its outlets NFC-receivers for contactless payments.

According to banking experts Tom Noyes of Starpoint Blog, companies such as Starbucks, already have their own business strategy and service Apple Pay until they simply are not interested. Despite the fact that Apple promises to simplify and improve the security of mobile payments, many sellers do not yet see for themselves the indisputable advantages.
