Who the heck carry, a dongel with it all the time and use it to swipe the credit card through it? Real bad solution and a failure.

Because it's easy to use and, hardware wise, compatible with virtually every smartphone out there (they all use the standard 3.5 mm headset jack).
Also NFC is only in a few devices even now.

As soon as they (hopefully) release the iPhone 5 with NFC I believe that most places will start using paypass... I already see them about 25% of the time.
