Yes, I think that retailers should be required to accept the new Apply Pay technology because Apple has made its self a huge part of our lives with all its new technology. I bet over 75% of the world owns at least one apple product, so it would be a lot more convenient for the public.
It should be up to each retailer individually whether or not they will accept the new Apple Pay technology. No one should be forced into accepting it as there may be unknown costs to deal with that they cannot afford to pay. Some places don't accept American Express so it would be the same
Retailers should not be required to accept the new Apple Pay option. The new way to pay: Apple Pay has been rejected by many retailers because of the fees and unwelcome publicity that this option entails. Retailers should not be forced to do anything they aren't comfortable in doing. It is their business and they should be able to choose what payment options they want the customers to use. It is unconstitutional for any company to be strong armed into anything questionable.
No, retailers should not be required to accept Apple Pay. To require retailers to accept any type of payment, whether credit cards, debit cards, or even cash, is unacceptable. If retailers choose to accept Apple Pay that is their decision, however, to require it would not make any sense and would not be enforceable in any case.
