I see in the China Post that Apple Pay is now starting in Taiwan. I’m curious if people are going to use this, and what they think about it - and for that matter, how they use it!
My main concern is that my Apple ID is based in Canada, even though the iPhone was bought in Taiwan - I’m not sure if that affects how I can use the app in different countries. I guess payments bill directly to the credit card, and don’t go through my Apple ID account?
The China Post article says that PX Mart (全聯) will accept Apple Pay, which will be sort of useful - that seems to be the only place these days I ever use more than 100-200 in cash, apart from restaurants. I also wonder if there are any especially useful promotions out there.
My wife’s started using other mobile payment services, and recently has been trying to pay for things with JKOS / 街口, which seems to result in saving lots of money on a few purchases, but also spending more money in order to save money, so … my feelings are mixed.
