Apple Pay acceptance grows to include Taco Bell, Target, and other vendors, as more companies support tap-to-pay services…
Tap-to-pay isn’t exactly mainstream at this time. But, it’s definitely gaining popularity as more retailers offer the option. That spurs an increased number of consumers to adopt the practice, opting to leave their plastic in their wallets for more convenience.
Apple Pay Acceptance Spreads to Target and Taco Bell
There are already a good amount of retailers who accept tap-to-pay services. But, there are still big-time holdouts. Now, Target, Taco Bell, Jack in the Box, Hy-Vee, and Speedway have all introduced support for the option.
For those unfamiliar, tap-to-pay allows consumers to store their payment methods in on place. When making a purchase, random, temporary account numbers are generated for security. Google Pay and Apple Pay are the two major players in the space, giving the option to both Android and iOS device owners.
Here’s part of the announcement:
“Apple Pay is rolling out now in Target stores and will be available in all 1,850 locations across the US in the coming weeks. Customers can use Apple Pay today at more than 245 Hy-Vee stores in the Midwest and inside the store at all of Speedway’s approximately 3,000 locations across the Midwest, East Coast and Southeast. Apple Pay is also rolling out to more than 7,000 Taco Bell and 2,200 Jack in the Box locations in the next few months.
These top merchants join other national retailers that already support Apple Pay. In 2018, Costco completed the rollout of Apple Pay to over 500 US warehouses and CVS Pharmacy introduced Apple Pay at all of its nearly 8,400 stand-alone locations. 7-Eleven launched Apple Pay at 95 percent of its US stores last year. “
