What does Apple Pay do well?
I liked it because it is so much easier to just open my wallet and click on my card to access details of transactions rather than having to sign in to an app and search. Apple Pay gives one line details of transactions rather than the coded details that the bank apps' give. I also like the fact that the approval process for Apple Pay takes a matter of seconds v/s the week-long approval process of bank cards. One of the most convenient methods of payments I have used. Its user interface and simple design is the best part of it.
What does Apple Pay not do well?
It did not work well for me sometimes because not all vendors take Apple Pay like Visa or Mastercard. It is still in early adoption. And this is why I did not like it at times.
What do you wish you had known about Apple Pay before using?
I wish I had known that it is not accepted at all vendors.
Have you used a competitor to Apple Pay? If so, how does it compare?
I have used Chase Pay. But Apple Pay is by far the easiest with everything linked on my iPhone.
