Contactless payments have been around for a while, but with the arrival of Apple Pay the technology has been grabbing headlines. Now a power struggle has started, with big-name retailers pushing their CurrentC alternative, which in its current state seems more focused on their own wants and needs rather than their customers’, and is more of a hassle to use than just swiping a card.

In the end people will throw their support behind whatever is easier to use without any extra hassles -- and hopefully more secure too. With that in mind we ask you: are you actively using Apple Pay, Google Wallet or similar services? If so, do you find it more convenient than good ol’ credit cards?
