Apple Pay is gaining some momentum.

Per 9to5Mac, Bank of America, which partnered with Apple to rollout Apple Pay at launch last October, has announced new customer data on adoption of the iPhone-based mobile payment service. The bank’s most recent quarterly earnings reveal that nearly 800,000 of its customers have begun using Apple Pay with a total of about 1.1 million debit and credit cards activated.

In addition to the latest customer data from Bank of America, support for paying with Apple Pay is popping up at Shoppers in Northern California and Nevada, which now offers the option to check out with Apple Pay at Lucky, Save Mart and FoodMaxx stores, Save Mart Supermarkets announced on Thursday.


Save Mart Supermarkets noted that shoppers at all three of its stores can start paying with Apple Pay as soon as today with 217 locations available.

Paying in stores with Apple Pay, of course, is supported on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, while the Apple Watch will enable iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, and iPhone 5s users to pay with the service upon the watch’s launch expected in March.

Apple Pay is currently limited to customers in the United States, although earlier this month we reported that Apple is planning to roll out support in Canada starting as soon as March. In total, Apple says it currently supports 90% of US credit cards by transaction volume.
