Apple-PayApple updated its Apple Pay participating issuers list today with 12 additional banks, credit unions and financial institutions supporting the contactless payment service in the United States. Apple Pay now has over 300 participating issuers nationwide, and several hundred more plan to support the NFC-based mobile payment service in the future.

The newly added Apple Pay participating issuers are reflected below, although it's worth noting that some banks, credit unions and financial institutions listed may have already had support for the contactless payments service and are only now being reflected on Apple's website.

The full list of new Apple Pay participating issuers:

  • Banner Bank

  • BayPort Credit Union

  • California Coast Credit Union

  • Centier Bank

  • Community First Credit Union (CFCU)

  • Glenview State Bank

  • HAPO Community Credit Union

  • Prestige Community Credit Union

  • Provident Credit Union

  • Staley Credit Union

  • Synovus Bank

  • Wood & Huston Bank

Apple Pay remains available in the United States only, although Apple is committed to an international rollout of the mobile payments service in additional countries such as Canada, China and the United Kingdom. Canada, a well-prepared candidate for Apple Pay, could be the first country to embrace the service outside of the United States in iOS 9.

Apple Pay gained 24 new participating issuers in early May and another 35 participating issuers in late May.

Nice but issuers is not the /issue/ its where you can use it and the slowness of retailers offering to accept the payment type.

And still no North Carolina State Employee's Credit Union. Well I've opened a Wells Fargo account to just use Apple Pay and I use it instead of the credit union now. Maybe some day the credit union will come out of the 19th century.

I get way more excited when they announce sellers that accept Apple Pay these days. The big issuers seem to have all converted and all that is left in the US are the tier 2 and 3 issuers. Hearing that Target is going to start accepting or Best Buy is more exciting these days. I say this because I have Apple Pay and all of my cards are already loaded, now I just need somewhere to use it.

I am really hoping to hear an expansion outside of the US next week at the WWDC.

From what I've experienced in the wilds of Western Washington, anywhere you see:

You can use Apple Pay.

That will be coming soon to pretty much everywhere in the USA over this summer, as retailers will be liable for fraud if they don't accept this method of payment from October, 2015 and onward.

Good luck with that in PA... That logo only means contactless cards/widgets will work around here. 99% of the gas pumps at any station will reject Apple Pay but take the same card as a contactless payment method just fine. Several stores in the local Mall have that logo but fail to accept Apple Pay.

That logo is not universal at all.

Who cares? I can't use it anywhere. The few times I've used apple pay It's been as new to me as the cashier. They need to focus on adding more places where it is accepted at instead of more supporting banks (or ideally both).

Apple pay is awesome... when I can use it. I just don't shop/eat at a lot of places that accept it. McDonalds? No thanks... not trying to die in my 40s.
