ExpressPay

Postby Mogul of Pineapples » Mon Jun 30, 2008 2:09 am

You know how the Blue cards and a few others have those chips built in for the ExpressPay service where you just hold the card up instead of swipe it. How many of you actually use it?

I think it's a cool feature and all but I never think to use it. The main thing is only a few places take it like CVS and 7-Eleven. Swiping a card is so simply anyway I don't really feel any need to wave a card even if they took it everywhere.

Cool feature, have two cards with it, but never bother using it.

don't have an american express but i know mastercard has a thing on their cards like that called pay pass but have never used it so i don't know how well it works. seems dangerous to me bec couldn't someone install a secret receiver by a cash register that would read people's cards when they are nearby? sounds possible to me!

I think you have to hold the card pretty close to the reader. I don't even think it will work if your card is a few inches away so it should be safe but I could be wrong.

A lot of cards have that Mastercard Paypass on them. What I would rather see is something built into cell phones. But then again being how often I break my phone that may not be the best idea. :oooo

I like the Express Pay on my blue card :ppp

They have it at a lot of places and that way I don't have to touch that dirty pen stylus to sign for the credit cards that thousands of other people have touched. ;)

i use payexpress with my amex blue cash quite a bit (ie: starbucks, duane reade, 7-11, etc.) as it just makes the mobility easier. i tap, i go....i tap, go as versus swiping, signing, and possibly showing ID and then going. I don't use the Mcard RFID quick pay option.
