英语新闻:Apple Pay上线刷新美国无线付款记录

2014-10-30    来源:siliconrepublic    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

Tim Cook在WSJD Live的访谈上再次抛出了业界热门消息,据Mastercard和Visa称,上线72个小时内,Apple Pay凭借一百万名注册客户,已超越此前所有美国无线付款业者,夺下无线付款的桂冠。

Apple’s new contactless payments technology Apple Pay has been instrumental in enabling 1m cards for NFC mobile phone commerce in the US within its first 72 hours, according to CEO Tim Cook.

The news reveals Apple has taken a strong lead in the NFC contactless payments space.

It comes amid reports that some retailers in the US – including pharmacy chains CVS and Rite Aid – are working on a rival system as part of a consortium called Merchant Customer Exchange (MCX) which is developing a mobile payment system called CurrentC.



Either way Apple, which has MasterCard, Visa and American Express on side as well as signing up 500 US banks in the past month, is pleased with its progress. Apple also counters a myriad of prominent retailers from Disney to Walgreens and Home Depot as early customers of the new payment system.

The system uses a dedicated near field communication (NFC) chip called the Secure Element. For extra security Apple doesn’t store the credit-card numbers, just the device numbers.

Speaking at the Wall Street Journal’s WSJD Live event Cook said that within 72 hours of the service going live Apple has activated 1m cards.

Cook said he was inundated emails from customers who described the simplicity of paying for goods using their iPhone devices as sort of Eureka moment.

Describing the spat between Apple and retailers like CVS as a skirmish, Cook said he was confident the retailers would eventually come around.
