Tap to pay is now available for US members of the Windows Insider program
Tap to pay is now available in Microsoft Wallet for members of the Windows Insider program running builds 14360 or higher. The service is currently a US-only gig and is useable at all points of sale with support for contactless payments, which amounts to “over a million retail locations”, Microsoft claims.

Tap to pay currently supports only a limited selection of banks – Bank of America, three local unions and S&L holding company People's United Bank – with US Bank, Chase and Fifth Third Bank listed as “coming soon” on Microsoft Wallet's page. If you want to use the new feature, you'll also need a Lumia 950, 950 XL or 650.

Tap to pay should be officially available in Microsoft Wallet this summer, with the Windows 10 Anniversary update scheduled for next month.

Letting an unfinished software handle your hard-earned money? That seems scary.

You do know windows 10 will continue to build on so it's never going to be finished software. The funny thing is everyone claims that windows 10 mobile dead but we steady getting updates and continuously improved software and apps.

It's because MS pulled out until they can provide a fully finished and operational software and reference hardware that they think could actually compete. This is why redstone 2 will be when it's officially released, marketed and with a new device that takes advantage of it. But don't say this "never finished" business. It will be finished on redstone 2. If you recall when Satya announced windows 10 he said it will be a 2 year project it to get it finished and then will continue to operate as a service. Anniversary edition is the first year. Redstone 2 is the final second year. So no it's not finished till redstone 2. Then it will always act as a service.
