Yeah, here in Switzerland the banks are backing a mobile app called Twint which uses some frankenhybrid of NFC & bluetooth for payments in shops etc. The problem is that it's rather unreliable when you pay so most people seem to prefer the convenience of the contactless payments instead. The largest bank here, UBS refuse to support Applepay in the hope that people will use Twint instead - we'll see who wins in the long run.
