They don't seem to want this to work...

I personally used Google Wallet on my nexus s 4g but just for the cool factor mostly... I liked it for a couple dollar purchase at the gas station and such, but all paypass locations accept google wallet. They are making this isis system completely different and not announcing it to retailers or customers. Doesn't seem like the carriers want this to be successful for whatever reasons.

hahah what a massive fail. I have GW on my Verizon Galaxy S3, but how the hell do you not have your best selling phone next to the iPhone included in the initial launch of this great program?

Whoever is running this should be fired.

I don't believe it is completely different. I believe that it's also contactless EMV. If Sugar Mama's Bake Shop accepts PayPass/payWave I BELIEVE they also accept ISIS. Whether she wants to or not (and it sounds like she doesn't want to). If she refuses to accept ISIS, then she could get penalized for violating the terms of her merchant agreement.

It's the same thing as far as the tech goes. It's NFC just the same but I thought that using a generic system like MasterCard paypass that alot of merchants already have would make the adoption rate for this better than a proprietary system. But if the cc processors are forcing it I suppose it won't be like I thought...

As I said in the other thread I don't believe it's in any way proprietary. Just standard contactless EMV. And the processors aren't forcing it, the networks are. There are incentives for merchants to have the terminals starting THIS MONTH and the processors are REQUIRED by April 2013 to support EMV (contact and contactless)

Not true. I have several merchant accounts and i do NOT accept PayPass/NFC transactions, the service was slowly phased out and getting one of those cards is not very easy any more.

I use the old school slide the card on the machine and sign that is connected to my PCs and one portable machine that uses 3g.

Reading comprehension is useful. I said IF you accept contactless EMV you have to accept all cards including Google Wallet etc. I never said you have to accept any contactless EMV. There will be incentives coming to do so mostly in the form of easier PCI compliance.
