The ad reads:
"WE THE PEOPLE WANT OUR MONEY SAFER THAN OUR SELFIES. PAYPAL PROTECTING THE PEOPLE ECONOMY
PayPal - PEOPLE RULE"
The ad follows other comment attacking Apple Pay from PayPal Sr. Director of Communication Rob Skinner who told TechRadar, “Nobody can dispute Apple’s strong track record, but payments is a difficult area. It’s much more difficult to do payments than to keep a live stream working!” That comment was in reference to Apple's failed live stream for it's September 9th keynote.
PayPal is clearly upset at being left out of the Apple Pay system and even excluded from the company's list of preferred payments platforms. PayPal had long been pitching Apple on helping to bring its payments initiative to fruition. It was even willing to white-label parts of its payment service to be used in an Apple mobile payments system. Unfortunately for the company, Apple believes it can take over payments on its own.
