It an article in USA Today mentioned that using payment apps on your smartphone is the way the world is moving forward.

Cash is NOT king anymore, nor is carrying around plastic cards. Payments are now commonly becoming a tap to pay system, all from the convenience of your mobile phone. Mobile pay apps is where the money is – do you follow?

Apple’s Apple Pay competes against Android Pay, PayPal and Walmart Pay apps. It sits inside of Apple Wallet, an app thats on all iPhones in the world!

This mobile wallet app can do more than just make payments to retail stores. Its how modern businesses promote themselves on an iPhone without the high costs of building their own app.

Apps in Apple’s Appstore are costly, a pass in Apple Wallet is not. Lock screen notifications are mobile updates that businesses use to engage and communicate their brand to their consumer.

Brand awareness skyrockets with passes in a mobile wallet like Apple Wallet.
