I’m actually fairly surprised with the number of places accepting ApplePay in Dallas and I do find myself purposely shopping at places that accept it like Whole Food and Walgreens. But I agree that I’m looking forward to the day where I can use ApplePay without having to think about it every time I checkout.
I’m also looking forward to more apps and online services. accepting ApplePay. Only updating your credit card number in one place for online purchases when your bank sends you (another) new card sure is nice.
Nevertheless, there are very few locations where I can use Apple Pay to buy stuff. This is probably more an indictment of alternative payment methods in general in America then Apple Pay itself but, nevertheless, it’s disappointing that this technology is now several years old and the only places I routinely shop that accept Apple Pay are a hipster super-market and the Apple Store.
