Apple Pay – The Big News Everyone’s Ignoring

one touch binäre optionen Buried in all the excitement of new iPhones and Apple Watches yesterday, there was a really major announcement which deserves a little more attention: Apple Pay, and what it’s going to mean for Apple and Apple shareholders.

binäre optionen gefahren First, let’s take a quick look what we know. We know that about $4 trillion a year in the US is put on credit cards, and that Apple already has 700 million credit cards on file attached to iTunes accounts. We know that to use Apple Pay, you’ve got to have an iPhone 6 or 6+ or an Apple Watch. We know Apple negotiated lower than normal swipe fees with 5 major banks which represent 83% of all credit card transactions in the US. We know that swipe fees are typically about 2.4% per transaction.

come scaricare iq option versione italiano Making a few reasonable assumptions, we can try to predict the impact Apple Pay will have, should it become widely used (and I think it will). So, let’s assume the following:

If that guess is right, that’s $400m in profit from Apple Pay in the 1st quarter it’s used, and do you know what’s interesting about those numbers? They’re bigger than anything Amazon has ever posted, and bigger than the numbers Amazon will post for all of 2014 – and that’s in the first quarter alone.
