Apple Pay Now Accepted By T-Mobile, GameStop, NBA Teams and More

Apple-PayApple Pay is now accepted by ten additional stores and partners in the United States, including T-Mobile retail stores, GameStop and a trio of NBA franchises in the Golden State Warriors, Orlando Magic and Phoenix Suns. The mobile payments service, compatible with iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, and soon Apple Watch, can now be used at 68 participating stores throughout the country as Apple continues to add new partners.

The full list of newly added participating stores and partners:

— ACME
— Davis Food & Drug

— Golden State Warriors
— Luby’s
— Orlando Magic
— Phoenix Suns

Apple Pay is a NFC-based mobile payments service that debuted on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus last October, enabling customers to make contactless payments by holding their smartphone up to a payments terminal at participating vendors. The service is secured by Touch ID and will also be compatible with the iPhone 5 or later when paired with an Apple Watch, which is available for pre-order April 10 and goes on sale April 24.

That's nice, but what we really need is support by some of the major grocery chains.

To be more precise: Doesn't work for anyone who doesn't have a US card. It works just fine in the UK for US tourists with US cards. It's mostly the banks that need moving.



Employees don't need to know anything. They either have the hardware and it works, or they don't have the hardware and it doesn't work. Nothing that the employee can do to help you or stop you. (Well, they can hide the terminal in a drawer...)
I know that they don't need to but when Apple's website lists them as a partner and Apple Pay didn't work - I asked the employee if they accepted Apple Pay (some stores only have select registers with an NFC terminal). Yet they still didn't know.

Apple's competitive advantage is customer experience - they could at least work with retailers. It's like the time I went to get coffee at Panera's drive thru and the employee tried to grab my iPhone to put it to the register because he didn't know how Apple Pay worked. It's awkward.
