Now as per latest report, Nordstrom is in a plan to join Apple and also company is in a talk with other retailers for the initiative the customers to pay for the physical goods at the store with the help of iPhone.
It is not official as the talks with Nordstrom are said to be in the initial stages, still a dilemma is their whether the Nordstrom will be seen as a Apple partner in time for September unveiling. As per early rumors, Apple may utilize the rumored NFC hardware on the new smartphones , along with the iTunes for payment processing, to allows customers to make purchase at the physical stores.
As such, Apple’s mobile wallet would compete with Google Wallet on Android and ISIS, a mobile payments partnership between U.S. wireless carriers AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon.
If this Nordstrom joins Apple, definitely it will became asset to the Apple, how ever Apple is also interested to join many other retailers. This rumored partnership with Nordstrom may make sense given the retailer already uses Apple products in lieu of cash registers at many stores now.
