CVS Stores Reportedly Disabling NFC to Shut Down Apple Pay and Google Wallet - Mac Rumors

A good reason to consider shopping at Walgreens (an Apple Pay launch partner) instead; check the full post for more details and links and Retailers are disabling NFC readers to shut out Apple Pay (The Verge) for more on CurrentC/MCX and its supporters

"The reason behind Rite Aid's and CVS's moves to disable unofficial Apple Pay support in their stores is presumably related to their participation in Merchant Customer Exchange (MCX), a retailer group developing its own mobile payments system known as CurrentC. A claimed internal Rite Aid message shared with SlashGear supports this notion, instructing cashiers to explain to customers that Apple Pay is not supported but that MCX's solution will be available next year."
