    Yes using a card is simpler if you are carrying a phone and a wallet but I think the point is to leave your wallet behind.
    30 years ago, everyone was talking of the "paperless" world that computers would bring - we're still not there yet (although a lot closer). Paying by phone is "cool", but leaving your wallet behind isn't! We're still a LONG way from a world without cash or credit cards, let alone insurance IDs, drivers licenses, etc.

    I use SP periodically, as I know where it will work and where it won't. It's marginally easier than using chip-readers, as they take a ridiculously long time to process. "Swiping" is still much easier than SP, IMHO.

    My local Walmart has worked at every register manned and self checkout. No issues here.

    Just a quick search, Iowa is working on phone drivers license. I think it's in test right now. Geico advertises phone insurance id cards.

    I'm working towards all digital. Tired of paper in general. I stopped carrying a paper notebook. Magazines are digital if possible. Etc. Not easy since I'm old, but getting there.

    If I have my phone out, or even if I don't, it's not any harder then unzipping my purse, unzipping my wallet, pulling out the card, then swiping.

    Back to topic. I haven't tried my Am Ex card at Walmart (where it did not work) since the MM update the other day, maybe I should try again. It did work on the vending machine today, like it has previously.

    I'd be curious what cards people have been failing with at Walmart. Mine was an AMEX also. I now have a new card (Citi) on SP, and will try it next time I'm at Walmart, although my local Walmart closed, so it won't be for a while!

    Meanwhile, the AMEX card with SP works at every other place I've tried it.

    I've used chase debit with 100% success at Walmart. Even get cash back.

    In the last 2 days I've used SP "successfully" at food lion and cracker barrel, where both cashiers told me it doesn't work, and also where I've used it several times before. I say "successfully" because the phone never gave me the blue check mark or there instant notification, and the cashiers stood there looking at me awkwardly. In the case of food lion, it went through only after she went to reset the transaction. At cracker barrel she didn't realize she needed to select credit. Got both notifications after leaving. Do I need to instruct them what to do? Used it on the soda machine too with no issues

    It still depends on what kind of POS the store have. Yesterday I had exactly same issue on Walmart.
    As I know it doesn't matter what kind of cards bound. It is the software on POS did wrong job.
    The S-Pay emitter payment information repeatedly every half second or so, like you swipe the card every half second on the slot. Most POS software will pick up only one swipe and handle the payment. But certain POS comes the software wrongly designed or may be too cheap to tell there are actually multiple swipes, it simply add all information together! I say one of terminal shows my name on credit card as JackJackJackJack... and than pop up "invalid card"

    I guess Walmart POS does the same thing.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't using a credit card simpler than using your phone? Credit card transactions in most places is so simple - swipe, and usually no signature required. It just seems to me, that using the phone is more trouble.
    My Samsung Pay worked so much faster than using my chip card.

    If you look in the slot and see the read head (in the middle). I center my camera lens over this area. And hold it until it accepts. It may beep a few times like it errors but it will go through or always has for me.
