It's interesting that they would need to do something per account... that's a little weird. Especially as I am already using Discover in Google Pay so there is that support there.

Great news about Discover. So now all of my cards will be contactless. Santander, both TDs, Discover, Chase, Revolut and Polish Debit. That's pretty fantastic - we've come a long way.

I haven't seen a Shell with contactless here on the east coast yet (Pennsylvania, Delaware or Maryland). I wonder if they'll add both at the same time to these.

Went to my local Chipotle. They have the terminal with a pinpad, which could be customer facing. But it isn't. I took another picture but it never saved on my phone, so it's only this one. Shows the...

My local Wegmans allows you to tap before total is rung up and does not show EMV contactless at all. I assume if it was EMV contactless you couldn't tap beforehand - or am I wrong on that one? I only...

I am only thinking that it might because Polish terminals requested signature from a US card above their contactless limit which was 50 PLN. So I wonder if it will be turned acquirer/terminal side or...
