Look at the DBS, UOB mobile apps for iOS.

None of them are even properly designed to fit the new iphone 6 screen.

Please don't even smell about Apple Pay
Agreed they are so buggy

Everytime say we encountered an error. Tel our 24 hotline. Error code bla bla

It's so troublesome

6s is out but still not much sound on the payment ecosystem.

Just a little history, mobile nfc payment is a 11 years old technology. Ntt Docomo has Osaifu Keitai (mobile wallet) in 2004, using the FeliCa standard.

A decade down, such technology are still not accepted here even though previously our ezlink cards were all using FeliCa chip

I think the problem lies with the fact that there are various systems for cashless. Visa & Master share one machine. Amex contactless I believe requires its own machine. EZ Link needs own machine. NETS Flashpay requires another machine. How many machines do you expect vendors to rent? And its not cheap to rent.

I don't think it's all Apple fault, have to see the vendor wanna support and if Apple wanna woo them. It's more of business than technology limitation.

All can use the same nfc standard. But maybe rental business is more fruitful?

err, shops won't have to rent any new terminals. existing terminals supporting Visa payWave, Mastercard PayPass will work. Apple needs to hook up with Visa/Master AND e local banks to implement e backend...

News on MacRumors reports that Australian supermarkets have the Apple Pay icon displayed in their maps card.

Did a little trying for fun and found this:


Hope it's not a bug.

Shaw too... Sorry if the image is too large.

But only this location "accepts Apple Pay". The rest does not. Cold Storage NEX as well.

Well they got the review from yelps and it could be someone from overseas used their Apple Pay there with an American credit card?

It's a start. Hopefully this will push other banks to support Apple Pay as well.
