I paraphrase... Jon Stewart said it best: ideas deserve s good sniff test. Especially true for gov suggestions cloaked in "patriot", "freedom", "tradition", or "save the ____". If you smell bullshit, then say something
Well now I can tell patients they have two reasonable choices -- Walgreens and Rite-Aid as of mid August. Hundreds of patients have agreed to move their Rx away from CVS to Walgreens since CVS's politically silly choice to shut off Apple Pay. Happy to do my part by telling then what CVS data mining means to patients.
Back to CurrentC.... CVS pissed me off by blocking Apple Pay on fully functioning NFC terminals. I've moved several hundred patients Rx revenue streams away from CVS and into Walgreens (plus some pt's who switched to places like Costco and other non-CurrentC vendors.) Just a little effort explaining why, and pt's are happy to switch. Took me 20 min to train the staff. Hey CVS: look what happens when you piss off the medical team.
Most important news: a list of merchant payment processors who support Apple Pay. Time to lean on our existing merchant processor -- hard. If they don't get on board fast I will move our company. Since my average customer transaction is over $300+ merchant svcs will likely care. If they don't, well, hasta la vista baby. As COO that's a two-second decision for me on any merchant service operation that hesitates or refuses after allowing a reasonable time to do...
Pep Boys takes Apple Pay now. Used it today
Roughly 5-10% per week. The only way I buy anything at Home Depot now is with Apple pay – – good thing they smartened up and take it now.We shifted to two grocery store chains (Sprouts and Whole Foods) that take Apple pay along with Walgreens as our new pharmacy. Family of nine eats a lot.Ralph's is down to less than 1% of the business volume it used to get from us.Costco better hurry it's butt up.Have not been back to Target since we had to replace two credit cards...
Much of the immigrant population and or the illegal population here in Southern California are among some of the hardest working people I've ever seen. However, they do have a pretty high proportion of android users. The next statement is just antocedal evidence, but more of the second-generation kids are iPhone users
I was able to use Apple pay at Sprouts Market for the first time today. Hooray !!! Shifting more and more purchases to retailers who take Apple Pay -- dropping those that don't. Kroger's/Ralphs better wake up

I want two things from my merchant processing company: 1. The ability to take Apple Pay in the field (along w chipped cards) 2. The merchant processor to provide a way for a link in our web page to process Apple Pay. Often staff and customer are in the field at location X, while the customer's family member is paying from location Y that is 50, 600, or 1,000 miles away (roughly LA, SF, Phoenix, or Denver)
