    I just want to know; with the separation of ebay and Paypal, will ebay add ApplePay to it's service? (please, please,please)
    I, so, want to DUMP PayPal, and never look back.

    Personally, I like the idea of only having to carry my phone... with absolutely no use for a wallet.

    I may be dead and buried before everything is on the phone but I really believe that is the future.

    The wallet is so old fashioned.

    (by the way... my wallet is bent from carrying it in my back pocket)

    Typical move by Apple who is acting like a petulant child. Companies must expand their services to remain competitive and signing up with a single company regardless of how self important they think they are is business suicide.

    PayPal has shareholders (via eBay) and soon their own shareholders when they are split off from eBay. If Apple can't handle the business world doing business they should get out of the game.

    Dude, you think using 50 year old technology is the way to keep your money safe in the digital age; knock yourself out. The banks are going to ditch credit cards faster than you can whistle…      whatever it is that you like to whistle.

    The worlds most vaulable company, that already is trusted with more than 800 million credit cards, will have no problem going forward without PayPal.

    lol.



    I’m pretty sure they just want to deal with corporations who aren’t known for stealing their users’ money and/or having breaches of security that get their users’ money stolen by third parties.

     

    Companies must expand their services to remain competitive…


     

    So I guess PayPal will have to look elsewhere to do that, huh.

     

    …and signing up with a single company regardless of how self important they think they are is business suicide.


     

    So wouldn’t this advice be better suited to Samsung than Apple?

    So Apple leaves out VW (the largest auto manufacturer in world) and Audi from CarPlay (at least initially) and now is leaving out PayPal, the largest mobile payments system in the world. I have to wonder about some of the executive decisions being made at Apple lately.

    I am not buying this tale in the word of some no name site with alleged sources.

    Sure PayPal might have been interested but Apple likely said no cause they intend for their service to make things like PayPal moot. Especially for online ordering.

    Screw credit cards. I prefer paper money. In my hand. To their hand.

    What an idiotic post. You could at least do a simple search before making silly assertions like this.

    Paypal made a deal with Samsung while they were in talks with Apple. Why the **** shouldnt they hold it against them"? Paypal made their bed, and it was the wrong one.  Everyone knows how shit the fingerprint sensor is on the S5, for example. They showed they have little vision and insight. Now, they will pay for it. Glad Apple completely dropped them. 

    Agree! If the are not loyal from the beginning, what would make you think they (paypal) will be loyal later on when they have more insight and can screw apple badly

    Sounds like PayPal is punishing themselves. I think the term is 'cutting off their nose to spit their face.'

    Can't wait to ditch PayPal. Trashy site, trashy iOS app. The only reason I've kept them on is that they can act as a buffer between my financial data and many retail websites, especially non-US ones, that I do not really know well. The only credit card I have on there is one I do not use anywhere else.

    Let's hope ApplePay proves to be everything it promises to be and more. And quickly. I hate to say this, but given the history of some of Apple's less-than-stellar networked offerings (e.g., the whole series of DotMac/iDisk/MobileMe etc., iTunes Match, the increasingly bloated and dysfunctional iTunes, Ping, iCloud, iWork in the cloud), I will wait a few months to form my judgment.

    The part I don't get is how ?Pay competes with PayPal at this time, or rather, in October when the update gets pushed to iOS. So far it's only a great solution for replacing physical cards where NFC payment systems are used. I wouldn't expect Apple to grow ?Pay into a more universal, internet-based payment system where banks can generate virtual cards per site/merchant until next iOS 9.

    Typical smug response from the self important Apple hating crowd. If you can't handle Apple's strong bargaining position in the business world, you should get out of the game.

    The executive decisions are the same as they've always been, "What's best for the CUSTOMER", not the conglomerate or business partner.

     

    Do you like buying 1 song instead of buying a whole album?  Where'd that come from?

     

    Apple re-makes ENTIRE INDUSTRIES in the CUSTOMERs benefit.

     

    Even personal opinions should be made in context.

    I prefer when Paper Money goes from someone else's hand INTO my hand.



    If I get enough of it, I'll get the Watch.  Oops.  Topic-contamination.

    What I usually do is go into PayPal, select a credit card and pay. I don't really need PayPal in the middle of this transaction.
