This article lists retailers and stores that are currently accepting Apple Pay. Apple Pay is Apple’s digital payment system that aims to replace both cash and your physical cards. You can add your existing debit and credit cards to Apple Pay, enjoy contactless payments at hundreds of thousands of retailers, and know that your purchase benefits from added privacy and security. Apple Pay is also integrated into many online checkout experiences for a speedy and secure process.

Here’s how Apple describes Apple Pay:

Apple Pay is the one way to pay. It replaces your physical cards and cash with an easier, safer, more secure, and private payment method — whether you’re in a store, online, or sending cash to friends or family. It’s money, made modern.

A lot of iPhone users want the ability to make purchases with Apple Pay. Because it is fast, secure, and private, it is also convenient. You don’t have to have your credit card details on hand when you want to buy something.

So you want to use Apple Pay, and you are wondering, “What stores take Apple Pay?”

The good news is that thousands of stores globally support Apple Pay, and the number continues to rise. In fact, some of the world’s biggest companies now accept Apple Pay. So where is Apple Pay accepted? We are updating this article frequently to add new retailers to the list.

Please note that some stores do not accept Apple Pay because they have their own competing mobile payment systems.

Please also note that this list only includes major retailers that accept Apple Pay. There are a lot of smaller participating vendors and merchants that accept Apple Pay.

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