Apple Pay Support Coming to Domino's By Year's End, Cinnabon Next Year

Cinnabon-DominosApple has confirmed to AP that Apple Pay support is coming to pizza chain Domino's by year's end, followed by cinnamon roll chain Cinnabon next year. The news comes less than two months after Apple said Starbucks, KFC and Chili's locations will begin supporting Apple Pay starting next year.
Apple said Tuesday that Cinnabon will add Apple Pay to all its U.S. locations next year, while Domino's company-owned pizza stores will get it by year's end. Earlier, Apple said Starbucks will conduct a pilot this year, with a broader rollout next year, while KFC will launch next spring.
Apple Pay is accepted at more than 1 million locations in the U.S., and at over 250,000 more locations in the U.K. The mobile payments service launched in Canada for American Express cardholders earlier today, with participating retailers including Apple, Indigo, McDonald's, Tim Hortons, Staples and more.

While Cinnabon and Domino's also have Canadian subsidiaries, both chains will support Apple Pay at U.S. locations only at launch.

Apple also confirmed that Apple Pay will launch in Australia on Thursday, November 19, exclusively for American Express customers. Apple Pay will launch in partnership with American Express in Spain, Singapore and Hong Kong next year. Apple has not disclosed plans for other countries.

Apple Pay gained support for Tesco Bank and TSB in the U.K. today, in addition to nearly 100 new participating U.S. issuers.

Good news! The more places the better.

Kind of off topic but are cell phones still considered a no-no around gas pumps? How great would Apple Pay at a gas pump be? Any talk out there of something like this?

P.S. Here's a look at tap-to-pay at Canada gas stations. Don't think too many will support AMEX unfortunately.

This is good and all, but we really need to see Apple Pay in subways/metros/buses and other forms of public transportation.

Good then the possibility of NFC pumps someday isn't ruled out.

Isn't it amazing how things based in zero fact or research can be taken so religiously due to fear or assumptions?

We have Sheetz gas stations in my area and they accept NFC payments at the pump. Have yet to use it because we have a corporate credit card with them that is (ironically) not compatible with Apple Pay yet but I'm hoping it will be soon.

Does Walmart really "hate cards" in the United States? Here in Japan, the Seiyu chain of grocery stores (which is wholly owned by Walmart) accepts cards — and even offers a Walmart-branded credit card to shoppers.

Walmart hates the fees from credit card companies. That's the whole reason they started MCX/CurrentC – it's not about convenience for customers, it's about getting out of credit card fees as they encourage people to link their bank accounts to CurrentC instead of a card. That's also why CurrentC is so clunky and awful.

Apple Pay's biggest weakness so far has been a lack of merchants. It's nice to see that changing. I'm hoping for more grocery stores (Kroger, please), gas stations, and restaurants soon!

The funny thing is that if you go to gas stations in some countries, there's explicitly a ban on cell phone usage. I never understood that until I read this thread.
