    Dear Adam, adding to the subject of Apple Pay discussed on your last podcast I wanted to say that in Europe Apple Pay usage would be easier to use than in the US. Actually even in Hungary (where I am from) I can use Apple Pay 99% of the places where they accept credit card payment at all (so even in small papa-mama shops) across the country. Since we have been using paypass credit cards for a long time now most of the terminals are ready to accept any contactless payment. The propbelm that at this moment I can only add my US, Swiss or U.K. Cards but not the Hungarian ones. That’s the bottleneck of Apple Pay in Europe for now not the places where they will accept it. Apple needs to roll out faster across the differente countries, sign deals with banks including smaller countries like Hungary. Love your show, all time listener, keep up the hard work, kind regards Peter
