Who Accepts Apple Pay? The Complete List of Stores, Restaurants, and More

Noticed people hovering their iPhones over credit card terminals to pay for things lately? They’re using Apple Pay, Apple’s mobile payments app. Apple Pay is an example of an NFC contactless payment, which means it’s a way to pay for things with your mobile device.

NFC payments like Apple Pay are extremely secure because they’re dynamically encrypted. Apple Pay has the added protection of Touch ID, Apple’s fingerprint technology. NFC payments are also extremely convenient. They’re processed super fast, taking just a few seconds as opposed to EMV chip card payments, which can take longer to process. It’s no wonder more and more stores are accepting Apple Pay. In fact, Apple Pay is already accepted at over two million stores.

To see if a store, restaurant, gas station, or other business accepts Apple Pay, just look for the Apple Pay and NFC/tap and pay decals in store windows and on points of sale.

Apple Pay isn’t just for brick-and-mortar businesses. You can also use Apple Pay in a growing number of apps to make secure purchases with a tap. If an app is set up for it, Apple Pay appears as one of the payment options when it’s time to check out.
