3/8/2016 - Apple Pay, one more contactless!
Apple Pay is a contactless payment system with your phone. You put your smartphone on the merchant's payment terminal, you validate with your fingerprint and you go. Without being revolutionary or really new, this service is quite practical and secure (no card number in circulation and payment, no maximum amount, immediately validated by the imprint). Currently, only 3 banks offer Apple Pay: Caisses d'Epargne, Banques Populaires and Carrefour Banque. Are you wondering why the other banks are not there? If they do not want to join it is only for financial reasons since Apple Pay charges 5 cents to the bank per transaction, or half of the remuneration of the banking establishment (for an average purchase of 50 us dollars). To avoid sharing the profits, the big banks are studying other systems such as that of the GIE Cartes Bancaires in gestation for 2017 (?), Or Paylib which will launch a "contactless" offer in the coming months. But we must not forget that other non-banking solutions already exist, such as Orange Cash, reserved for Orange (or Sosh) or Boon customers, an application developed for owners of Android smartphones. In addition, another manufacturer, Samsung, will also offer its own payment method in France from 2017 ... Telephone manufacturers, telephone operators, application creators, banks, ... there are people to share the juicy contactless settlement market! And faced with this inflation of NFC payments it appears today that none of the online banks offers this service. Too bad for the customers!
