Apple Pay Now Supports Cards That Make Up 90% Of U.S. Credit Purchases

16 декабря 2014

Apple Pay is gaining steam, just months after launch, it now supports cards from providers that make up 90 percent of the credit card purchases made in the U.S. In addition to ten new banks that are coming on board today, It’s now accepted in more places than ever before, with Staples, Winn-Dixie, Albertson and the Amway Center turning on support in the latest wave.

And people are actually using it, too: McDonald’s has said that 50 percent of its NFC-based tap payments are already Apple Pay as of November, which is huge considering how much of a head start other programs had in terms of seeding customers and advocating their alternatives.
