【海外连线】红包大战那都不是事,美国线下支付大战才是真正的历史颠覆


i黑马:结账时用现金?亲,你是刚从猿进化过来么?结账时刷信用卡?Out!结账时扫二维码?勉强跟上时代。那该怎么结?答:刷手机!钱包,可以扔进历史了。


文/蒲鸽 本刊记者

编辑/崔婧


春节里,支付宝跟微信的大战可谓风云变幻,潮起潮落,甚是好看。用户们一边感受着滚滚红包八方来袭的热烈如火,一边疯狂地戳着屏幕挥洒着自己“一分也是爱”的执着与激情。


当摇一摇变成了全民健身运动席卷了整个中国大地,科技巨头们再一次用自己的土豪气场巩固了移动支付。就在这个春节,远在大洋彼岸的美国也没消停,随着一个个重磅消息的宣布,“三星收购LoopPay”,“Google与Softcard及三大无线运营商展开合作”,苹果、三星、谷歌等巨头们也甩开膀子干起来了。而这一场战斗层级更高,冲击也更猛烈。在中国,支付宝跟微信大部分还处在线上较量的阶段,而美国,战火已经烧到了线下支付。这样一来,钱包注定要成为历史了。


事实上,线下移动支付并非什么新鲜玩意儿,无非是手机将钱包中的借记卡、信用卡、会员卡、礼品卡等以数据的形式录入手机应用,别人用POS机刷卡,你刷手机,仅此而已。谷歌早在四年前就开始捣鼓谷歌钱包。美国三大无线运营商Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile共同的儿子—–移动支付产品Softcard,如今也已经五岁了。



可无论是谷歌钱包,还是Softcard,这么些年一直都是不温不火。为啥?


市场不广!渠道不畅!用户不买账!


谷歌钱包是一款通过近场通信(NFC)进行支付的产品。一直以来,谷歌钱包都备受三大无线运营商Verizon、T-Mobile和AT&T的打压,只有无线运营商Sprint肯与其合作,而这唯一伙伴旗下的不少智能手机还纷纷表示不愿意搭载NFC。谷歌将希望寄托于其他安卓系统的手机品牌,可人家要是不答应,也是没辙啊。自己倒是开发了Nexus手机,无奈受众面不咋的。智能终端是硬伤啊。


支付终端POS也让谷歌大伤脑筋。现有的POS不能直接刷谷歌钱包,必须安装NFC配件。这笔安装费谁来出?若谷歌补贴,没准儿正好做了其他支付的嫁衣。可用户数量不大,商家是不会花这个钱安装的;商铺没有支付端,用户自然涨不了。先有鸡还是先有蛋,谷歌一时破不了这个局。


再看看Softcard,他的日子也不好过。除了三个爹照顾,别家对他是爱搭不理。


为了打通市场,谷歌曾多次向其他三大无线运营商Verizon、T-Mobile和AT&T和Softcard伸出橄榄枝,无奈多情总被无情恼,始终还是孤家寡人。


然而,一直的不温不火的市场突然间风云变幻,熊熊战火直冲云霄。谷歌和Softcard刹那间互相路人转粉,共同携手移动支付。


这两冤家最终走到一起都是拜苹果所赐。2014年末,苹果支付横空出世,一路高歌猛进,摘得累累硕果。谷歌傻眼了,Softcard也傻了,这俩哥们儿想不到,自己多年来一直辛勤耕耘的线下移动支付,却被苹果这位后来者抢了先。Softcard的境况本来就不容乐观,每月1500万美金的烧钱挡不住业绩的难看,又是裁员又是业务整合。如今,大敌当前,想想还是投入谷歌的怀抱。2015年2月24日,谷歌正式收购Softcard。


不得不说,苹果就是霸气啊。2014年9月苹果支付亮相iPhone 6和iPhone 6 Plus的发布会,10月份正式上线,就有约500家金融机构及22万商户可实现NFC近场支付。截止2015年1月底,苹果已介入750家包括银行及信用卡,约三分之二的近场交易来自苹果支付。此外,苹果还与美国科技达成合作,将支付又延伸至20万个服务点,停车,洗衣及售卖等也可以刷苹果手机了。这样的发展势头,无怪乎库克在今年1月份的电话会议上称“2015年将是苹果支付年”。



目前,只有最新款iPhone 6和iPhone 6 Plus搭载NFC,用户结账时只需轻点屏幕,或直接指纹感应,便可实现瞬间支付。据称,万众期待的苹果智能手表也将搭载此项功能。


苹果的来势汹汹让三星也坐不住了。2015年2月18日,三星美国公司宣布收购移动支付公司LoopPay,向苹果发起挑战。其实早在2013年,三星就开始与LoopPay展开接触,并对其进行战略投资,直到几个月前,才完全敲定对的LoopPay的全资收购。三星移动支付的掌门人Injong Rhee在谈到未来发展时,自信地表示三星支付将涵盖所有线上线下交易,打造最智能,最安全,界面最友好的支付体验。三星做得到吗?



从目前来看,三星确实有这个潜力。与苹果支付相比,LoopPay优势明显。据悉,90%的商铺可使用LoopPay进行结算,而苹果支付只占得到5%。



LoopPay几乎支持所有的信用卡,借记卡,会员卡, 礼品卡,校园卡等,而苹果只支持90家发卡单位。


此外,LoopPay几乎可以在所有手机上使用,而苹果支付只能在iPhone 6,iPhone 6 Plus这两款智能手机上使用。


但LoopPay的劣势也很明显。LoopPay采用的是磁场技术,跟苹果和谷歌的近场支付比还是比较落后的。严格算起来,LoopPay还算不上移动支付,因为它的发射器不是内置在手机硬件里的,而是安在手机保护套上的。甚至都不需要手机,用LoopPay的钥匙扣就能刷卡。论支付流程,LoopPay虽不复杂,但赶不上苹果的快捷。此外,使用LoopPay支付,用户还得额外掏银子购买手机壳、发射器和钥匙扣等。


总的来说,三家巨头是各有所长各有所短。谷歌的智能终端硬伤导致其对于谷歌钱包的安装没有强劲的把控力,不过与三大运营商及Softcard的联姻会让其覆盖面大大增加。苹果虽坐拥万千果粉,又有强有力的硬件设备待命,但近场支付NFC的市场普及率仍个大问题。三星的LoopPay虽然目前受众面最广,但这项相对落后的技术未来的想象力如何;此外,LoopPay会不会继续为别的手机品牌提供支付支持目前还不好说。


但毫无疑问,巨头们已经开足了马力朝线下支付的山头狂奔。据市场研究公司eMarketer的数据,2014年美国智能手机POS移动支付的总额达到35亿美元,而2016年预计将增至275亿。研究机构BI Intelligence也作出预测称,受益于苹果支付的强势来袭,未来五年,美国移动支付交易额年复合增长率将达172%,到2019年,美国移动支付交易总额将升至8180亿美元。这么大的市场可不是兵家必争之地,自然还少不了其他英雄好汉的虎视眈眈。


美国包括沃尔玛在内的三大零售商结成联盟,推出自己独立的移动支付应用CurrentC。在其势力范围内,采用近场支付的苹果支付和谷歌钱包完全被屏蔽。


PayPal作为美国历史最悠久的支付方式仍占据着移动支付的高地,据ITG Investment数据显示,其在去年11月移动支付的份额高达78%,但其基础设施建设相对落后,目前还没接入POS机,用户需要登录账户才可完成交易。


美国的移动支付市场已经起飞,接下来是跑马圈地,战争的白热化也将随之到来。中国的线上支付白热化有微信和支付宝的红包大战,那美国的移动支付大战未来会发生哪些惊心动魄的战争场面?中国何时会掀起线下支付的大潮?未来的精彩仍有待时间去揭开。不过,可以肯定的是,这场大战会比红包大战更为猛烈,在战争的尽头,钱包将冷冷清清地躺在屋子的某个角落,静静地看着灰尘越落越厚。。

Availability Is a Coat of Many Colors By @LMacvittie | @CloudExpo [#Cloud]

One of the more interesting data points to come out of our State of Application Delivery 2015 was the overwhelming importance placed on availability – even over security. When respondents were asked which service they would not deploy an application without, they chose availability. Security came in a close second.


This caused a great deal of discussion. After all, one of the most often cited impediment to adopting, well, everything has been and remains security. One would think, then, that security is top of mind and clearly a priority for everyone.


Yet availability beat it out for what amounts to the “most important application service.”read more

Introducing Google Cloud Platform Status Dashboard

By Brian Goldfarb



We know that even the smallest service disruptions can cause inconveniences on your end and not being able to find information about what’s happening can be even more frustrating. We do our best to make sure outages don’t happen, but when they do, we think it’s important to be transparent and communicate those issues.


Starting today, you’ll be able to receive status updates for Google Cloud Platform services on the Google Cloud Platform Status Dashboard. This augments the additional tools and services including Google Cloud Monitoring that monitor your service’s health. We hope that these services will make disruptions a bit more bearable by surfacing the latest information and helping you quickly find workarounds.


As disruptions in service occur (and we’re working very hard to ensure they don’t!), they’re reported on the dashboard with a red bar, which persists until the disruption is resolved. The example below shows an example of a Google App Engine service disruption that occurred last month on Jan 28th.


The current status of Cloud Platform services is shown by the column of indicators on the right side of the graph. In the example above, the indicators are all green which means that all services were operating at normal levels at the time the screenshot was taken. You can also check out the status history of each service the dashboard will always show the last seven days, but just click on “View Summary and History” to see any of the incidents reported over the past 90 days.


Click on any incident to get a more detailed explanation of what happened. The screenshot below details the above incident that began at 2015-01-28 17:01 and lasted 26 minutes. As you can see, the green indicators next to the dates and times mean the incident has since been resolved.



Stay up to date by subscribing to the Status Dashboard RSS feed, available from the link at the bottom of the Status Dashboard page. We have also integrated reporting of Cloud Platform service incidents in your Cloud Monitoring events log, enabling you to view incidents alongside your other dashboards and monitoring data.


While in beta, we’re reporting status for seven services, aggregated across all regions. The Status Dashboard does not deprecate any other means of communicating outages.

We’d love to hear your feedback and suggestions. Please submit your feedback by clicking the link at the bottom right of the dashboard page.

Don’t Just Pal Around on Facebook–Make Money Selling Your Stuff

By Leisa Good




Do you have a lot of friends on Facebook? Do you have a lot of junk lying around the house? Do you have a product that you could sell? Well, then selling on Facebook might be your answer.


Unless, you have been living on a desert island without a cell phone or any hint of civilization since 2004, you no doubt know about Facebook. You probably don’t just know about it, but have many friends and followers who love to share pictures, “like” recipes, and instant message or text one another throughout the day.


You also probably know that businesses use Facebook to promote their brand via Facebook ads, fan pages, contests, and uploaded articles. You can actually have either a personal Facebook account, a business Facebook account or both.


But did you also know that you can sell your unwanted items on Facebook? Yes, you are no longer limited to just eBay, Craigslist or offline yard sales and flea markets. You can sell a variety of unwanted items via Facebook yard sales or Facebook events such as home parties. Over the years, I have been invited and attended both Facebook yard sales and Facebook home parties.


What Are Some of the Ways to Sell Things on Facebook?


Actually, there are several ways to sell on Facebook, but I will just touch on the three main ones. They are:



  • Facebook yard sale groups

  • Facebook home parties

  • Facebook F-Commerce stores


What’s All the Buzz About Facebook Yard Sales?


You can do a search within Facebook and find or connect with a yard sale group in your area. If you’re like me, you’ve already been invited to several in your area and can just join and “like” them for now until you decide to post your own items.


If you haven’t, you can find a group by typing in the search field: yardsale + your county or city name. Once you find it, an administrator may have to approve your request, which could spell a waiting period for you. If it is a closed or private group, you’ll have to try to find someone to invite you.


If you live in a very small town, you can always try a varied search and use terms such as “garage sale” to try to find the nearest county or town yard sale Facebook group to join.


What Makes Facebook Yard Sales So Successful?


While it goes without saying, it would depend upon what you are selling. However, given any yard sale group, what generally makes Facebook yard sales so successful are:



  • the non-stop obsession with potential buyers checking their Facebook accounts.

  • any time someone comments on an item, the item goes to the top of the event page.

  • you can communicate via private message and don’t have to worry about too many calls, texts, and less than desirable people wanting to come to your house.

  • you can “tag” people who might be interested in the item you are selling.

  • the number of people in the group could be several thousand.


Once you are in the group then you just upload your items, give them a name and description, and then give them a price. You and the buyers can later decide how to work out the payments.


It also goes without saying, that there will be rules and regulations for each group, and you want to make sure that you are adhering to those rules and regulations.


How Can You Also Sell on Facebook Via Home Parties?


Another great way to sell is through online home parties. Since January, I have been to two Jamberry Nails parties and an Origami Owl jewelry party. Both were done by creating an event on Facebook and inviting others. The one I remember the most was the Jamberry Nails party, where we folks online had a free conference line to call in on and listen to the hostess and the people at her house as well as interact on the Facebook event page.


Online we “virtual virtuosos” on Facebook were answering trivia questions on the timeline and trying to be the first to post our answer to win a prize. There were also other types of online games geared towards winning more prizes and giveaways. The online party went on for about four hours. During that time, I could log out and come back as many times as I wanted.


Photos were also being posted as we learned about different products and nail designs. We were also able to click a link to a product page to order.


Just How Popular Are Facebook Stores and the F-Commerce Model?


Thirdly, another way to make money on Facebook is to set up a store offering what you sell. Instead of e-commerce, a term we all should know by now, it is F-commerce or Facebook commerce. Even small businesses with only one person can set up a Facebook store and sell cakes, handmade jewelry, knitted clothing, etc. Most of these vendors also have online presences at Etsy, Amazon, and their own website. I found a very positive article about a few vendors who have done very well with their own Facebook store.


In Conclusion


In conclusion, these are the three main ways that individuals can sell and make money on Facebook. While there are other ways, and as sure as this article is published, there will be some innovative individuals coming up with even more ways to make money selling items on Facebook.


If you are interested in using any of these three methods to make money selling items on Facebook, then just get on there and start inviting your friends. The worst thing they can do is decline the invitation, and that just means more prizes and bargains for everyone else!


Good luck!
