Apple scored rivals
The report says that Apple Pay has 30.3 million users and the number of Starbucks mobile payment platforms is 25.2 million. In addition, Google Pay 12.1 million and Samsung Pay 10.8 million users with Apple Pay and Starbucks’ın is seen to be far behind. Apple Pay’s success lies in its acceptance by many US stores.
By 2020, 70 percent of all retailers in the country are expected to accept the form of payment for Apple Pay. EMarketer also predicts that 30 percent of smartphone users in the US will use the mobile payment platform next year. Apple Pay mobile payment system is not yet available in our country.
