Apple Cash? Cupertino Said to Be Working on Venmo Competitor

Obviously, the peer-to-peer payments would only work between other Apple users as it will be tightly integrated into Apple Pay. Apple Pay gave mobile payments a jumpstart when it was unveiled in 2014, but most people so far haven't adopted such services, including Samsung Pay and Android Pay, instead sticking with cash and plastic. Last year, 20% of American iPhone users reported using the service at least once.

The cards could be added to Apple Pay's digital wallet, and be used for tap-and-pay purchases as well, in addition to purchases on websites and in apps.
The issue with peer-to-peer payment apps in general is that it's hard to make money off of them.
P2P payment services are notorious money-losers, though.
