What is PayPass_! – Page 2 – RedFlagDeals.com Forums priceless mastercard commercial

Jan 22nd, 2008 6:16 pmi think the having to type the amount is totally up to the integration between the cash and the POS machine. I don’t thin it has to do with paypass itself.

Just like at some places like mcdonalds ald walmart they don’t have to type interac amount, and others (with more ghetto cashes) they do.

I expect if/when mcdonald’s and walmart get paypass it will be fully integrated.

I have yet to try it at superstore so I don’t know how well integrated it is there – anyone have feed back on that? Do they have to type in the amount to the pad or is it automatic?

You’re right about the integration issues. If you go to newer tim horton’s locations, the paypass is fully integrated so that the cashiers don’t need to key in a value. I’m not sure if tim horton’s is going to go out of their way to replace all POS systems though.Priceless mastercard commercial

At any loblaw’s store the paypass is fully integrated as well and the cashiers seem to know more about it (although I usually self-checkout myself).

I like it so far, but I don’t find that it makes too much of a difference in terms of how fast things are. In fact, the only reason why it’s faster in certain places is because you are not required to sign for anything under $25, but this isn’t a paypass rule, it’s a rule in general now for certain stores.

The thing I hate about paypass is that it’s slower than handing the card over to the cashier. The problem is that you have to tell the cashiers to turn on the paypass and then wait for them to turn it on.Priceless mastercard commercial at the superstore, you don’t have to sign a receipt for small purchases so having the cashier swipe the card is actually faster. The paypass should automatically be turned on when I’m paying.

My personal favourite is at pioneer gas stations. PayPass is super-fast, don’t have to take the card out of my wallet, and it just works perfectly. Not so at petrocanada where 90% of the time the paypass doesn’t work, and I end up having to insert my card, and tim hortons is the absolute worst of all with 100% of them that I’ve been to not knowing how to use paypass.

The way paypass is supposed to work is just how it works at pionner.

Come to think of it, I’ve also had a couple of good successes at second cup, though they’re branded visa paywave I think, but I’ve used my paypass mastercard without a problem.Priceless mastercard commercial
