Allegedly, Apple Pay for mobile websites will be restricted to iPhones and iPads that come with a TouchID fingerprint reader, which are the same limitations as those put in place for Apple Pay physical store and in-app purchases. The report notes that using Apple Pay to place purchases on mobile websites will only be possible through Apple's own Safari browser.
With the 2016 edition of the WWDC only a few months away, Apple Pay for mobile websites could be officially introduced at Apple's developer conference this upcoming June. However, Re/code's sources say that the official unveiling of the new service is not set in stone just yet.
An expansion of Apple Pay to mobile website shopping would bring Apple's payment service in direct competition with PayPal, a mobile payment platform that more than half of the top 500 online retailers in the US are currently supporting.
What do you guys think? Should Apple expand Apple Pay to mobile websites, would you consider it as an alternative to PayPal?
