Apple Pay is accepted at nearly 750,000 locations in the United States and United Kingdom, and Apple is committed to an international rollout of the mobile payments service in additional countries such as Canada and China in the near future.

Canada could be the next country to embrace the service outside of the U.S. and U.K. in November. The country has already migrated to Chip-and-PIN debit and credit cards and many retailers and businesses have since upgraded to NFC-based terminals to accept contactless payments.

Just to break this down, that works out to be 749,500 locations in the UK and 500 in the US. In reality 498 of the US locations have actually turned off their terminals so really only two places accept it in the US -- WholeFoods and McDonalds. The irony is perfect.

Notwithstanding your humor, I've used it multiple places besides McD and WF, including gas stations, Walgreens, Pandora Jewelry, and anywhere that has one of the logo, I try it, and so far, I'm at 100% in the Seattle area.

This is fantastic, I can now load up my iphone/applewatch with the 1000 credit cards that I have and ditch my wallet. Of course the only problem is that this is completely useless until merchants agree to turn on their NFC terminals to accept touchless payments.

So far this whole thing has been lopsided towards the issuers. I hope that this corrects itself soon. It seems small what the benefits are to the consumer, but having used it several times in the 2 places that accept it on the planet (okay I may be over dramatizing it a little here but the point stands :)), I have found that the the peace of mind from the superior security of the transaction coupled with the sheer convenience really does make a difference. I am anxiously awaiting for this to role out and if merchants trade their current square fobs for apple pay fobs this will be totally awesome.
