With Apple Pay continuing its ongoing rollout across U.S. banks and credit unions, Apple’s mobile payment service has added over 30 new partners. Here is the full list of new Apple Pay banks:
Anderson Brothers Bank, Bank & Trust Company, Bank of Labor, Bank of Yazoo, BankWest, Brown County State Bank, Busey Bank, Campbell & Fetter Bank, Central Bank of Oklahoma, Collinsville Savings Society, Core Bank, Covantage Credit Union, Diversified Members Credit Union, Farmington Bank, Florida Parishes Bank, Fort Worth Community Credit Union, Great Midwest Bank, Horizon Bank (not Horizon Bank, N.A.), Litchfield Bancorp, Luther Burbank Savings, Mississippi National Guard Federal Credit Union, Oregon Community Credit Union, Pathfinder Bank, Platinum Federal Credit Union, Qualstar Credit Union, Red River Bank, Seven Seventeen Credit Union, T Bank, The Citizens Bank, Titonka Savings Bank, US Employees O.C. Federal Credit Union and Wallis State Bank.
In addition to the latest banks that now let card holders add debit and credit cards to Apple Pay, we learned earlier this week that Apple Pay is now accepted at over 2 million locations. And last month Apple CEO Tim Cook said that in countries where the service is available (United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia) there are over 5 million contactless payment-ready terminals.
We also learned that food chain Chick-Fil-A plans to rollout Apple Pay at all of its stores. Crate & Barrel and Au Bon Pain are also new Apple Pay locations, and Zappos is adding the payment method to its app for iPhone and iPad.
Local cafes, bakeries, and festivals can also accept Apple Pay much easier now with Square bringing its $49 Apple Pay reader to Apple Stores. The device lets anyone accept payments from Apple Pay-ready iPhones and Apple Watches.
We’re also looking forward to the possibility of Apple Pay cash withdrawals at ATMs this year, and Apple is rumored to be working on a peer-to-peer payment feature for Apple Pay users as well. And just yesterday, I detailed my experience with Apple Pay from year one as well as highlighting some progress I’d like to see in year two.
