An example that immediately springs to mind might be Paypal as a payment application – which might itself contain multiple payment methods (credit card, debit card, direct credit transfer from bank account). Payment method ≠ payment application. (Other examples of payment applications – Android Pay, Apple Pay, Visa Checkout, Masterpass…)

The other observation I’d make on Mike’s comments would be to flag a huge concern over the default payment app/method. Payment providers spend (in the case of Visa and Mastercard) Billions of dollars a year making sure that their payment instruments are front of wallet. I think “burying” the other choices will make getting support for adoption from these providers pretty difficult. I am anticipating that the prioritisation of payment applications and payment methods will be one of our most challenging design issues.

  *   How the selection of a payment method is done by a payment app will depend on the payment method. We shouldn't assume that it always means selecting a payment instrument. That is a very card-centric way of seeing things.
What alternatives are there besides selecting a payment instrument? Please elaborate.
