Wait. Are we use it uses tokenization like Apple? This sounds like they are waving the fee...but instead could get all the purchases data.

If Visa & Mastercard & banks in general are providing free payment apps (as I've been using for quite a while now) why would anyone use a payment system that occurs a fee?
Only those dedicated to a certain fruit type variety of devices would be so simple.

"Apple Pay has been at the forefront of the technology."

WHAT? WHAAAAAAT?
I was using Google Wallet way before the iPhone 5 came out (not even talking about the 5s).
How has it been in the forefront?
