Why Doesn’t Your Store Accept Chip and PIN Yet?

Apple, Google, PayPal & others form coalition to ensure lawmakers understand financial tech

apple-pay-clover

With Apple Pay, Google Wallet and other services transforming the way people carry out transactions, Apple has joined forces with four other companies to ensure that lawmakers don’t end up ‘inadvertently’ stifling innovation in the financial services field.

Technology industry leaders Amazon, Apple, Google, Intuit and PayPal today announced the formation of Financial Innovation Now, a coalition that will promote policies to help foster greater innovation in financial services.

While the new organization uses relatively diplomatic language, it’s pretty clear that the aim is to ensure that politicians don’t screw things up by introducing poorly thought-out legislation, like the infamous example proposed by Democratic Rep. Joshua Peters … 

Back in January, the Missouri lawmaker proposed a new law that would require shoppers to show photo ID whenever they used a mobile wallet service like Apple Pay, with clerks obliged to record the ID details before processing the transaction.

Brian Peters, Executive Director of Financial Innovation Now, says that the lobbying group wants to help lawmakers understand modern payment technologies.

Financial Innovation Now wants policymakers to understand how new technologies can help solve today’s policy challenges […]

The regulatory environment must allow these new innovations to enter and compete in the marketplace. We look forward to working with policymakers to promote the adoption of new services, many of which are already bringing significant benefits to consumers and small businesses today.

The group plans to lobby lawmakers to modernize the financial services system through better security and real-time payment processing.

Apple is continuing to expand Apple Pay, with an ever-growing list of new banks in the U.S. plus further international expansion. The company recently reported double-digit monthly growth.

iOS 8 How-to: Use Camera to enter in credit card info

Screen Shot 2014-09-30 at 8.56.25 PM

With iOS 7, Apple added a new feature in iBooks, iTunes and the App Store that allowed users to scan iTunes gift cards with the device’s camera rather than manually entering the string of characters on the back of the card. Now in iOS 8, you can use the device’s camera to scan and enter credit card information.

To add your credit card for purchases open up Settings and tap on Safari.

2014-10-09 16.10.06

Then tap on Passwords & AutoFill. Here you will notice that by default that Names and Passwords, and Credit Cards is turned on by default. To add a credit card, press Saved Credit Cards. When you press on Saved Credit Cards, it requires you to enter your devices’s password to continue.

2014-10-09 16.15.31

Once you enter in your device’s password you will be able to add a credit card by pressing on Add Credit Card. If you happen to see credit cards already listed here and are not sure why they are there, that indicates you were using iCloud Keychain which stores any credit card information you have entered in and syncs across your iOS devices and your Mac. Then you are able to scan the credit card by pressing on the words Use Camera up at the top in blue.

2014-10-09 16.17.17 2014-10-09 16.20.20

When doing this on the device, a white box appears with Position Card in this Frame.

 

2014-10-09 16.25.36 Screen Shot 2014-09-30 at 8.56.25 PM

When doing this on the iPhone, the phone vibrates when it detects the card numbers. Sometimes it will also pick up the expiration date, but most of the time I had to enter it in manually along with my name on the card. For security purposes it will not store the CVC number. Testing this with vertical credit cards, it was not able to detect the credit card numbers.

Screenshot 2014-10-09 19.21.22

Now when you go shopping online using Safari, you are able to have your credit card information be filled out very quickly for you. When you tap in the box that says Name on card or Card Number, you get options to either enter in the credit card information or AutoFill Credit Card.

2014-10-02 08.41.21

Tapping on AutoFill Credit Card shows you the credit cards you have stored locally on the device or in iCloud Keychain, or it allows you to scan in a new credit card right then.

2014-10-02 08.41.30

Then when you go shopping online it will fill in your name, credit card number and expiration date. You do have to manually enter in the security code on the back of the credit card.

Square’s Cash iOS app adds ‘Nearby Payments’ for sending money over Bluetooth

CashSquare-Cash-app-01, the app launched by payments company Square last year for personal money transfers, today updated with a new way to send money on iOS 8 over Bluetooth LE. The feature is called Nearby Payments and allows users to send and receive payments by using Bluetooth to find and connect with nearby users. That’s opposed to the previous methods the app already offered including sending payments via text message and email. In case you’re wondering why it’s iOS 8 only:

https://twitter.com/sqsupport/status/519522346495778816

Square notes that users will be able to select preferences for nearby visibility to allow either everyone or only contacts to see their availability. Today’s update to version 2.1 also includes the ability to “Quickly approve or decline money requests with actionable push notifications.” 

The updated Cash app by Square is available for free on the App Store now.

Safari in iOS 8 uses camera to scan and enter credit card info

Safari-iOS-8-credit-card-scan-01 Safari-iOS-8-credit-card-scan-02

In iOS 8, Apple has a new feature in Safari that allows users to scan a credit card with the device’s camera rather than manually entering the number when making a purchase online.

When entering a credit card number into a form online to, for example, make a purchase, Safari already allowed users to quickly select credit cards stored in its Passwords & AutoFill settings. You can still do that, but in iOS 8 you’ll now also have the option to select “Scan Credit Card” and snap a picture of the card. Apple then uses optical character recognition of sorts to input the number into the text field in Safari.

Website developers don’t have to do anything to enable the feature, as Safari appears to automatically detect when a credit card number is being requested and presents the option to scan above the keypad.

Safari received some other updates announced this week at WWDC too, including a redesign in OS X Yosemite on the Mac, and highly requested features on iOS like the ability to request a desktop site and a tab view for iPad.
