Apple Pay Review: the Re/code, Bi-coastal, Team Test | Re/code

A nice review from the folks at re-code about the realities of using Apple Pay in the US.

My most unusual experience was at a Radio Shack store, where the manager insisted that Apple Pay wouldn’t work, but reluctantly let me try it. I easily bought a $9 wall charger using a terminal originally meant for a competitor, Google Wallet.

I am interested to see how long it is before Apple Pay is launched here in Europe. I can see the convenience of paying this way, but with the battery on my iPhone often running out in the evening, I think it will be a long time before people abandon their wallets completely.
