Tim Cook Says Apple Activated Over 1 Million Cards on Apple Pay in 72 Hours

Posted October 28, 2014 at 7:18am by iClarified
At the WSJDLive Conference in Laguna Beach, California, Apple's Tim Cook discussed his thoughts on retailers that refuse Apple Pay and revealed that over one million cards had already been activated on the mobile payments system.

Is it a real challenge now this whole issue of whether or not some of these retailers are actually not willing to cooperate?

"I think its a skirmish, is the way we see it. You know we started last Monday, we've been at it for a week and I follow these numbers pretty closely. In the first 72 hours we've gone over the one million mark on activations of cards. Visa and Mastercard, we talked to these guys today, and they told us that if you sum up everyone else that's in the contactless mobile payment at the point of sale, we're already number one, and not just number one, but we're more than the total of all the other guys. We've only been at it a week!"

There is no advantages on the retailers side and unproven security

I can almost hear the Fandroids foaming at the mouth BrightVerge and going apeshit hearing about Apple Pays take up rate being higher within 72 hours compared to the 3 years of Google Wallet's existence.

At least they didn't mock the iPhones. They weren't owned as much.

And then they say we don't monitor apple pay, it's just in your phone.

They track records by how much data is taken to them. Like J.D. Power reviewing every phone sold and comparing results.
