You may be on the fence about using mobile pay with your smartphone, but consider this: Mobile pay is safer, can be used in more places now than ever, and can save you money.

Still, you probably have a ton of questions about how mobile pay actually works – like what’s the difference between Apple Pay, the new Samsung Pay, and Starbucks Mobile Order & Pay.

That’s why the PC Mike podcast is happy to bring you one of the industry’s top experts: Silvio Tavares, president and CEO, The CardLinx Association, a nonprofit working to educate all about various forms of electronic payment and loyalty programs. CardLinx recently sponsored a report called “Mobile Pay 101.
