Digital Wallet: Can Apple pull it off? PayPal has Something to Say…

With Apple’s keynote on September 9 over, we all know about the new iPhones, iOS 8 and Apple smartwatch done, the company also revealed something new – Apple Pay. It is Apple’s own payment system for iPhone users and uses NFC to achieve it. This is the first time Apple is getting into the digital payment world and can be a possible threat to existing companies. However, PayPal – an existing and established online payment company thinks that Apple is up for a hard time.

The Digital Wallet

Both Android and Windows Phone 8 support online payment via NFC where available. Apple was holding off on NFC till iPhone 6 to finally reveal it along with payment system. The digital wallet significantly simplifies your money transactions and frees you from the burden of carrying a leather wallet and credit cards. Multiple cards can be configured easily. However, there are already other solutions available like PayPal where you pay through your online account.

PayPal’s Warning

Digital money can be difficult to manage and people are finicky. The mass will not just suddenly run for digital wallet unless one provides something extra. In addition, not all banking institutions support NFC payments. PayPal over the decade has built connection with more than 15000 financial institutions and already has 150 million active users. According to them, such management is not easy and takes years of expertise to achieve. PayPal’s Rob Skinner even joked that “It’s much more difficult to do payments than to keep a live stream working!”

The Future

It seems like Apple maybe testing uncharted territory and chances are the “Apple Maps” fiasco happening again. However, Apple might just pull it off in time making it a hit. PayPal though thinks otherwise. […]
