Lack of NFC - deal breaker

In looking at phones for myself and for friends that ask for help, I've avoided phones that otherwise looked great but didn't have NFC (and there have been several). I am wondering what keeps companies from including this as I would imagine it is a very inexpensive chip (mostly looking at mid-range devices like Moto G6, Honor 7x). Personally, in the 16 months I've had my current phone, I've used it maybe 10 times for Android Pay. Am I over emphasizing this feature? Let's face it, no one really has to pay with their phone.
