JP Morgan closes Chase Pay service
Starting next year, JP Morgan Chase customers will no longer be able to pay with their phones in stores.
The American bank said it plans to shut down its Chase Pay app in early 2020. Mobile payments app launched in 2015 as Apple Pay was gaining popularity.
It should be noted that Chase Pay will not completely cease to exist. The service will be available for use on websites and applications linked to participating retailers.
The bank announced that it plans to add more retailers who accept Chase Pay through merchant apps, including food ordering company Grubhub.

On top of that, this week, in partnership with Goldman Sachs, the tech giant launched the Apple Card, breaking into yet another payments segment..
