In Los Angeles county, we have a tap card system where you hold it against the surface on a reader and it deducts the card value from the card. Can iphone smartphones with applepay be used as a proxy to these tap cards? Are the technologies compatible?


According to Wikipedia, the tap cards are based on rfid: en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Contactless_smart_card#Technology

Apple pay is also based on rfid


Sadly, No. Not at this time.

Thank you,

Only if the Los Angeles county department that deals with payments have made their systems compatible with Apple Pay. You will need to ask this question of them.
