    Despite the sheer number of smartphone in the United States, users don't seem too keen on using one to pay for things. Credit cards are still the most popular payment method and mobile payments lag behind the rest of the world.

    Like you, I use Pay every chance I get, but in the big scheme of things, I agree with the article because I do see a great deal of people paying with either a debit/credit car or cash. People still stare when they see me pay with my iPhone or my Watch as if it’s a brand new function.

    I had to "talk my husband" into agreeing to me trying Apple Pay. I feel that it's so much more secure!

    I think a lot just don't trust it, seems like every time you turn around somethings being hacked.

    Old school and card?
    Old school is pennies and bills. I use them barely. If Apple Pay was introduced by my bank already, I’d never even touch pennies and bills.

    Yeah, that’s my point exactly. Paying with card is not old school.

    Too many places in my area don't accept it. I mostly use my card. I use Pay at McDonald's and Subway, but that's about it.

    Love Apple Pay to the point I spam dialed my bank asking for it for four months till they finally got on board.

    End problem is most retailers I use don’t accept Apple Pay but I do have a few favs and some online use as well

    I actually pay my Sprint bill via Apple Pay

    I’ve been using it for about a week. Simple and easily. I’m actually surprised I’ve been able to use it at a lot of locations. Not everywhere mind you but not bad.

    True, which is why Apple needs to make a point of explaining how one time tokens are generated for every single “swipe” or “tap.” Even if digital. And if that gets hacked, they get a useless number. Most they can do is take the money you were going to spend.

    One problem I run into, is store employees who are clueless about Pay. The store offers it, but the employee has no clue what to do. I hold the phone up to the machine, but nothing happens. And the employee just shrugs. This makes me not want to waste my time with Pay. I don't thing many iPhone users in my area are using Pay. This may be why store employees are clueless. Not enough experience with it.

    What does the employee have to do? I haven’t noticed them doing anything.

    Ahh, I haven’t run across that but probably will at some point. Certainly not enough to discourage me.
    It does come down to needing more places that accept it in the U.S. before more people will take advantage of it.

    I am happily ” old school”, that means cash, if it’s not in your pocket you can’t spend it, what someone spends their money on is nobody’s else’s business.

    Exactly. They only have to hit the button for card payments instead of cash. It’s not like they have to enter a binary code to enable Apple Pay on the terminal each time. It’s that simple. Big button for Cash and another for Card.
