    Apple Pay and NFC

    We were thinking about upgrading the credit card machine in our shop. Are paying via Apple Pay and NFC popular nowadays? Should we be looking for a machine that can accommodate those kinds of payments? I've only ever used credit cards so I really don't know. Please tell me your opinions. Thank you.

    It might not hurt to have, but overall use will be highly contingent upon the customer base. AKA, you might be able to find plenty of research that points to people using NFC as a payment method, but if the people who use your store don't really use the technology, then you wouldn't benefit from adding it.

    Also if you're going to consider ApplePay then you should also consider Google wallet or some android based payment method, as android accounts for a much larger share of the mobile market.

    Thank you for your replies.
    I'll make sure to read that article you shared.
    I know a lot of people who uses an iPhone 6 so I think I'll just go for the machines that can accommodate these kinds of payments. I'll also check out the ones about Android and Google Wallet that you're saying.

    I’ve heard about TSYS and heard some good reviews about them also. They’re quite decent and has above average customer service record as well. Well good luck on your business

    Re: Apple Pay and NFC

    Okay. So now I have another dilemma. What's this flat rate processing that my friend is talking about? She's saying that it'll help me in terms of saving up on processing fees. Any thoughts on this?
    I went to the site of the company where I bought my credit card machine and saw that they have something about flat rate processing as well. Should I sign up for it? I'm going to my bank before this week ends and see if they can help me with it.

    I'd appreciate more insights about this though. Please let me know if you have or anybody you know can help me out. Thanks.
