    I use it everywhere I can, but not a lot of places up here have NFC readers at point of sale yet.

    I am surprised how many we have in DFW. Also Austin is a test market for ISIS and the NFC readers are everywhere and they work for Google Wallet too so maybe when ISIS does roll out we will get to use GW more. Looking forward to trying it once I get the S4 GPe. I kinda miss it since selling my Nexus 4. I have not had the guts to use my Nexus 7 at a NFC terminal lol!

    That's exactly my situation. Outside of McDonald's and recently Burger King and a drugstore or two that use it, that's about it in my neck of the woods.

    A couple months ago I had an amusing encounter. I had the front tires on my minivan replaced at a small local family-owned tire shop. The man at the desk hand-wrote the invoice. While he was getting it ready I saw that his credit card terminal had PayPass. When it was time to pay I tapped my phone, and voila! He couldn't believe that I was able to pay with my phone. I don't think he had any clue what that feature was on his credit card terminal, and possibly he didn't even know it had the feature in the first place!

    McDonald's has had PayPass terminals for a long time, and I'm still surprised at how many employees are awed when it's actually used!

    There was a post on the main blog, I'll see if I can find it. I just was curious if you were using an out of the box touchwiz S4 or the one from the google play store or one modified to be the google play version.

    quick question on this - if google wallet's using a card, does that purchase count as some sort of google purchase or a regular purchase?

    ie, if you buy something at mcdonalds w google wallet, is it a purchase through google wallet or through mcdonalds? the reason i ask is because the card im using has cashback for lets say fast food - and i get 5% back for fast food purchases - then it won't count if it's some sort of "google" purchase but it will if it's a mcdonalds purchase.. sorry this was totally unclear lol

    Not so sure but it would probably be through McDonald's.

    Since Google runs it through a virtual number to protect your actual CC number, it shows up in my debit card as a Google transaction. Give it a try to see.

    Yes. It hit my bank as a Google NFC CVS transaction.

    Attempted to use Google Wallet today for the first time. The transaction wouldn't work at Macy's, but it worked fine at CVS. Same POS station at both stores, and the Macy's machine even had a sign on it advertising contactlless transactions, but it wouldn't work. The salesguy said I was the first person he'd seen try it. CVS went off without a hitch.

    I have tried the Google wallet at places that have the terminals but they do not have the functionality turned on. I wonder if that is the case. At least you know but is not your phone since CVS worked!

    Just need more places to jump on the NFC bandwagon!

    How does it work? Do you go into the google wallet app first? Or just wave the phone over the paypass area? I see it at some stores but I'm always afraid to use it and hold everything up as a I wave my phone around like a dufus.

    Its easy make sure u have Google wallet on and an updated card online. Make sure nfc is on also. After that just hold it up to the paypass. I've seen plenty posts of people thinking either Google wallet or the terminal isn't working because they wave the phone to fast for the process to complete. Just hold it close not wave it and it should work fine.
