Wells Fargo has announced support for PayPal NFC payments

Paypal announced in early 2016 a desire to return to the idea of NFC payments in the wake of Apple and Google's success. Earlier this morning, PayPal announced the ability to link it to Android Pay, so you could at least use your PayPal funds over NFC that way. Now Wells Fargo has announced they're rolling out support for PayPal customers to link and pay using NFC. It looks like PayPal has NFC on the mind.

Facebook adds a group payments feature to Messenger

In 2015, Facebook launched the ability to do person-to-person transactions in Messenger, but it was limited to two people at a time. It's a neat feature, especially if you or your friends don't want to use something like PayPal, but it's now expanding to group conversations starting today.

Android Pay v1.19 prepares to show full transaction histories even when Pay isn't used, adding support for Nanaco cards in Japan soon [APK Teardown]

Android Pay v1.19 began rolling out last night, but like many of its recent updates, there aren't any obvious new features to see after updating. However, a teardown of the app does show there are a few things in the works, or maybe even ready to launch in the near future. Supported cards will soon allow Android Pay to show full transaction history, even if the purchase was made outside of Android Pay. It will soon be possible to block sensitive data from appearing on screen, which will prevent prying eyes from stealing that information. And finally, Japanese users can look forward to support for the Nanaco payment card.

Thanks to a new partnership, Samsung Pay users will be able to shop online wherever Visa Checkout is accepted

Out of the different mobile payment solutions, Samsung Pay is probably my favorite — granted, my experience with Apple Pay has been limited thus far. Not only is there no bootloader restriction, but the support for old-fashioned magnetic terminals is a huge plus. But what about online shopping? Sammy has its customer base covered with the newly announced partnership with Visa, which will allow Samsung Pay users to shop at any virtual merchant who accepts Visa Checkout.

Android Pay v1.7 reveals upcoming support for debit cards in Canada [APK Teardown]

As many people can attest, Google hasn't always been particularly quick or consistent to bring wanted–or needed–services to countries outside of the United States. Some have been slower than others, and perhaps the ones feeling it the most are our neighbors to the north, Canada. Among the absentee services is Android Pay, leaving both Apple Pay and Samsung Pay as the primary contenders in that market. However, that appears to be changing as Google prepares to support Interac, a network of banks providing most of the debit cards in the country.

Square Introduces Android Register API To Integrate Mobile Payments With Other Apps

Square, the company that makes those little headphone jack credit card readers, would like you to use their services more. Of course they would - that's kind of the whole point of commerce. But at the moment merchants using Square are limited to the dedicated Square app, which by default is a sort of digital cash register. The company is hoping to expand itself a bit with its latest API, which allows developers to integrate Square payments into their independent Android apps.

One And A Half Years Later, The Plastc Card Remains Delayed And Incomplete

A few years ago, a couple companies had the idea of creating credit cards with e-ink screens that could replace all the other credit cards in your pocket. You may remember them as Coin and Plastc. The former, after missing its target date by a year, hit the market in 2015. The latter is still in development. Since quite a bit of time has passed since the end of 2014, Plastc is now issuing a status update.

PayPal Here Chip Card Reader With EMV And NFC Support (Including Android Pay) Comes To The US September 30th

We here in the States aren't always quick to adopt new technology (or in this case, new-ish). Take those little security chips embedded in credit cards. Yeah, we're only just now getting around to using those. Banks are starting to send them out, and retailers are having to update their machines.

So PayPal is now bringing its Here Chip Card Reader to the US. This updated unit accepts chip card transactions in addition to magnetic stripes. Starting next month, merchants who do not accept chip cards will be liable for point of sale fraud unless they update to an EMV terminal.

Samsung Pay Launches Today, And You Can Get A Free Wireless Charger Or Flip Case By Activating On A Note 5 Or GS6 Edge+

After a whole summer of waiting and beta testing, Samsung Pay is live in the US. It supports all 2015 flagship Samsung devices, but you'll need carrier support too. That might mean a few updates and some more waiting.

Android Pay v1.0 Can Auto-Redeem Some Loyalty Programs And Special Offers When You Tap To Pay [APK Teardown]

Android Pay is finally here and it's pretty much everything we expected it to be. While there are plenty of questions about where we can use it, which credit cards can be set up, and why it's so aggressive with brightness even when barcodes aren't on screen, the actual act of spending money is about as straight-forward as it could be. As it turns out, there's one feature Google hasn't really discussed yet, but it could become the best thing about using a phone to buy things. Android Pay can automatically redeem special offers, submit account details for loyalty programs, and make a payment in just one tap to a payment terminal.
