You should be able to use Apple Pay at JCPenney’s sometime in 2016.
The retailer has apparently begun testing Apple Pay support for its store cards, with plans for an official introduction sometime in the spring of next year according to a shopper’s anecdote indicated on Monday.
The shopper recently tried to add his JCPenney card to iOS 9’s Wallet app, and was met with an unusual Terms and Conditions page. A notice at the top of the page explained that JCP is running a pilot program out of the Village at Fairview outlet northeast of Dallas, paving the way for the spring rollout.
Apple and JCPenney have yet to officially confirm the plan.
While store-based credit cards are a pretty new additional to Apple Pay, companies like JCPenney and BJ’s Wholesale Club were announced as Apple Pay partners in June, but have since stayed mostly silent.
At present, JCPenney has yet to support Apple Pay via other cards at its sales terminals, although this could change in the relatively near future.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
