Apple on Monday updated a section of its Apple Pay website, adding a new feature that allows businesses to order Apple Pay decals for merchants.
Clicking the link to order decals takes merchants to a new Apple Pay Supplies website where they can sign up to receive an Apple Pay kit that contains window and register decals. In the kit, there are glass decals in two sizes, register decals in two sizes, and an application tool. Businesses can order up to five kits using the online tool, but larger decal orders require placing a phone call to Apple.
Kits are available at no cost after a company, name, email address, and shipping address are entered.
Apple is encouraging businesses of all sizes to adopt Apple Pay with its new logo kits, and it has a dedicated page for merchants who are interested in accepting the payment method. Apple Pay adoption by retailers has continued at a rapid pace, and in March, several new Apple Pay partners emerged, including GameStop, Marriott International, Jamba Juice, JetBlue, Office Max, Regal Cinemas, Walt Disney World, and more.
During Apple’s March 9 event, Apple CEO Tim Cook revealed that there are now more than 700,000 locations where Apple Pay is accepted, including vending machines. Later this year, Square will introduce a new Square reader with NFC connectivity that will expand Apple Pay availability to thousands of small business owners that use the iPhone-based payment system.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
