Apple Pay Becomes Double Pay in the UK
Apple Pay can cause an economic misfire with users of the ever popular public transportation service, the Transport for London, under certain circumstances.
So if you enter the system with an Apple Watch and exit with an Apple iPhone, for example, it will bill the account the maximum the second time, even if you paid before from the other device.
In other words, if using one Apple Pay device with Transport for London, you must use the same device throughout, regardless of whether one account links multiple devices or not.
This coincides with other minor Apple Pay early launch problems in the United Kingdom.
“In the US, banks were willing to pay 0.15% per transaction to Apple for the privilege of using Apple’s platform,” explained Lu Zurawski, head of consumer payments at EMEA, the global payments company ACI Worldwide, to Patently Apple.
