Great news! Very slow though but at least it's on it's way.
When will Tesco allow contactless instore, namely self check outs? Apple pay being availble is great, allowing it's use in you're own stores would be icing on the cake 🙂
Welcome to the club Tesco!
I've been using Apple Pay since the service launched in July (Santander 123).
I've even used the service in your High Street Kensington branch of Tesco Metro.
Now all we need is Apple Pay within a Tesco store outside of Central London!
It'd be great if we could add our Clubcard loyalty card to the Wallet app; it's now possible within iOS 9 and Walgreen's (an American pharmacy chain) are rolling this out in their stores so please follow suit?
Great News I use Apple Pay all the time with HSBC, its so secure and easy,
So to be able to use it with my Tesco Credit Card woud be a very useful addition to the facility,
Do we have an estimated date when it will be avaialble to us?
That is Fantastic. I can imagine the reason why it's next year is because contactless payment will be widely available in all Tesco stores outside london. Tesco Hampton Peterborough definatly not using Contactless at the moment. But i heard the store attendant saying after christmas it will be ready.
So put all these together, I'II say January Apple Pay will be available.
I am kind of sad that I won't be able to use my Debit Card at the moment. Hmm, it makes me feel like we are second class citizen. I would have thought is the same technology. If you could implement the Credit Card, why not Debit Card. Well second class citizens can wait.
I agree why couldn't it have been both the credit card and current accounts. Just hope there's not too much of a wait for current accounts now.
