It’s hard to laugh at two million points of sale.
Apple’s Apple Pay mobile payment solution is now supported at approximately two million locations around the world. In addition to revealing that 2 million locations now support the service, a Bloomberg article also says that Chick-Fil-A, Crate & Barrel, and Au Bon Pain will also start rolling out support for the service soon.
In the past, Chick-Fil-A has experimented with a QR-based solution for mobile payments, but that effort has ultimately flopped according to employees. The company also recently revamped its app, but it’s unclear if the app too will gain support for Apple Pay, or if the rollout is limited to physical locations.
Online retailer Zappos has also stated that the company will be adding Apple Pay support to its iOS app. This means that users will soon be able to pay with Apple Pay when shopping with the Zappos app, as opposed to having to enter their card information directly into the Zappos app itself.
Last year, it was announced that Starbucks would expand Apple Pay support to all stores sometime in 2016 after starting an initial rollout last year. Furthermore, chains such as KFC and Chili’s are also expected to support Apple Pay this year. Finally, Dominos and Cinnabon are also rolling out Apple Pay support to their physical locations, as well.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
