Re: Apple Pay

I'm currently spamming @Viseca_Cards on Twitter, replying to every Tweet that asked about ApplePay, with the Tages Anzeiger link. They only reply with "Viseca bietet ihren Kunden Apple Pay derzeit nicht an" when people ask when/if they're planning to support it.

It's interesting that you mention this today: Swisscard and Graubündner Kantonalbank now support Apple Pay, which means that most people should be covered. VISECA won't support Apple I guess but that most people are with Swisscard anyway (they also issue Coop Supercard etc.)

Re: Apple Pay

Go to twitter and post a question. They'll only do it when they hear a demand for it.

Re: Apple Pay

Liberty card, the former free SBB card, which costs from next renewal, supports Apple Pay...

That was my take on it too. Last time I asked at CS, the official line was merging of TWINT and Paymit was the future, but they would monitor ongoing market developments.

Re: Apple Pay

Yupp, also works with the standard Amex cards - just added it to my iPhone and the Apple Watch.

One thing I noticed, though:

the TOS are kind of controversial - they contain a liability waiver, for example. So any transaction done through any of the attached devices can not be appealed. So one had better make sure the passcode on the Apple Watch isn't easy to guess, and that the iPhone is fingerprint locked at any time.

If you lose any of the attached devices, you are required to notify Swisscard ASAP.

I probably won't be using Apple Pay too much as I don't typically pay for everyday items with a credit card - but it'll be interesting to see how it works anyway.

Re: Apple Pay

I wonder if that's a universal Apple Pay TOS thing. It might be the main thing that makes it worth the transaction fees paid to Apple.

could be - the cynic in me says that they're merely using this occasion to get out of liability :-)

Re: Apple Pay

Apple Pay is finally coming to Credit Suisse One more month of patience (end of April) and I expect a huge rate of activations. Hope next banks will follow...

Re: Apple Pay

I hadn't seen this before. Apparently there's an anti-trust investigation going on regarding Swiss banks' conspiring to block out ApplePay.

Re: Apple Pay

Does any large retailer in Switzerland actually accept ApplePay?

Despite Amex and MC issued by Credit Suisse allowing Applepay activation (which I have done) it is a useless exercise if no one accepts it.

I trust Apple more than UBS.

Re: Apple Pay

Swisscard who ran the coop credit card now run a free cashback card that is suitable for Apple pay. You can exchange the coop one through this link https://www.cashback-karte.ch/en/replace-card/

You can use Apple pay at every contactless RFID terminal.

Twint terminals are an add-on for contactless payment (which is a huge drawback for Twint implementation). ApplePay uses the normal credit card contactless readers built in to the chip/pin terminal. So they're all ApplePay ready.
