This headline caught our collective eye the other day –

Walmart bans Apple Pay; launches own Walmart Pay app”

Kind of a wonky take on something we know to be a bit different than written.

  1. Walmart is still taking Apple Pay.
  2. Walmart is going to be taking Walmart Pay.
  3. Walmart is still part of CurrentC – MCX consortium.
  4. Walmart would take magic beans for payment if they thought there was a market in it.

So we’re not entirely sure why the Australians didn’t do some basic fact checking before they published; Australian sentiment for Apple Pay and Walmart isn’t exactly a cheery bit of business. On with Walmart, I suppose.
