This could be pretty useful.
Brian Roemmele’s PayFinder app works via crowdsourcing to report over 12,000 merchants in North America that accept Apple Pay, 95 percent of them being small businesses. In parallel, its developer reported that the new app’s users have increased an incredible 750 percent over the past two days, indicating a lot of interest in Apple Pay.
Roemmele commented about the jump in Apple Pay interest over the holidays, stating that “Christmas was good to the iPhone 6 series and Apple Pay adoption.” On Christmas Day, Roemmele had earlier noted that ‘indirect activation data suggested that the Target and BestBuy $100 off Apple Watch promotion may have doubled [the number of Apple Watch] devices in use.’
Apple has managed to quickly expanded its Apple Pay service beyond the U.S., the service launching in the UK in June and more recently in Canada and Australia last month. It is expected to begin operating in China early in 2016.
Pay Finders is available for free and requires iOS 7.1 or later to install and run.
