    Yes, it happened to me at Walgreens yesterday. It must be because I had my debit card on file with Walgreens before Apple Pay came into being.

    Perhaps my card is linked to my Walgreens Passbook account and Walgreens runs my debit card through just for good measure. Otherwise, at a never-before-used merchant, I don't think I would need to enter my PIN code.
    They don't get your debit card number... Not even your name.

    My credit union is not set up for me to use Apple pay. I've tried to load my card but it keeps telling me that my bank hasn't been added yet and to try back later.

    I went to Walgreens yesterday to try out Apple Pay.....I have a Chase debit card....it worked fine but I still had to input my PIN. I thought my fingerprint was supposed to kill that?? Anyone else had this happen to them?
    Same thing for me, it asked for a pin

    Must be the way Walgreen's terminal is setup ... Had to chose credit etc but at Pet Smart it worked flawlessly

    Just to update a little on this thread. I recently switched out my credit card terminals for newer ones as of yesterday. They're equipped with NFC and accept Apple Pay without a problem. I tested the debit method. It seems that once the customer makes the tap, the vendor still has the choice of whether to charge the transaction as a debit or credit. It seems that no matter what, if you're being charged in debit form, it requires a PIN. That's just what debit is.

    By the way, no matter how much the sale is, the debit fee on our end is only 15 cents flat on the sale as opposed to a percentage on credit. Which could be why many vendors still choose to charge you debit. They just get charged less.

    One vendor told me it is cheaper to charge credit on items under $25, anything over charge debit

    Opposite for me. I pay 15 cents for a debit transaction whether the customer is paying $1.00 or $1,000

    Actually we are talking about the same thing... Credit charges %, so it is cheaper under $25, debit is less expensive after $25 as it is a fixed cost

    How do you set up Apple Pay on the 5s? Or is it only for the 6 and 6+?
    ApplePay only works on the 6/6+ in-app or in-store.

    The whole thing is explained with CDCVM. Once retailers use this, everything will work the way it's supposed to, the way Apple intends it to. https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202527

    Trader Joe's still asks for a PIN when using Apple Pay for my groceries. I don't mind. It keeps me safer. But I'll agree, it's not as quick having to enter a PIN.
