Apple Pay Announce On Apple Iphone 5S

The mobile wallet Apple Pay has grown significantly since its launch in October, and is now supporting credit cards that account for 90% of annual credit card transactions in the United States.

Many of the major credit card issuers worked with Apple Pay from the outset: Bank of America, Citi, Chase, Capital One, Wells Fargo and American Express.

Some other issuers and banks now work with Apple Pay: SunTrust, Commerce Bank, TD Bank North America, Barclaycard and the United Services Automobile Association. Chain stores like Staples, Albertsons, Subway and Winn-Dixie are now accepting Apple Pay at their registers, as well as McDonald’s, Nike, Petco and Foot Locker.

Apple Pay is available on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. It uses near field communications to allow users to swipe their phones at the register to pay for their transactions. Apple Pay stores the users’ card information in a secure account on the phone, eliminating the need for a wallet.

For a full list of credit cards and banks working with Apple Pay at this time, you may review the participating issuers on Apple’s website. The information is regularly updated to reflect changes to the network.
