PayPal Instant Transfer is launching in the United States. It lets people instantly transfer money from PayPal to their bank.
Wall Street was surprised when Apple chose to partner with Goldman Sachs. According to a new article by WSJ, other financial institutions like Citigroup and JPMorgan Chase offered their services to Apple as well.
Goldman can’t do it on its own either. It is new to consumer banking, having spent most of its 150-year history catering to big companies and billionaires. Without branches, it needs other ways to find customers for its online savings and lending business. Apple, too, needs new engines of growth as iPhone sales slow.
Germany may finally be getting on board with Apple Pay, and it could happen as soon as next month.
