CVS, Rite Aid Shut Out Apple Pay
This, basically, sucks...
There are multiple ecosystems supporting NFC-- Google Wallet, Softcard (the system formerly known as ISIS) and now Apple Pay. All supporting a common terminal structure that was multi-vendor.
Now MCX is creating a system that requires customers to load yet another proprietary app on their phones, as opposed to using a standards based system and a common terminal structure.
If there was a technical reason for abandoning NFC, I could understand. But to build out yet another proprietary system seems to only serve MCX, and not their client or consumers.
simple enough...I just wont shop at those places.
Walgreens supports NFC payments, and there is one near my house and my office. Problem solved.
