Apple Pay Gains 18 New Participating Issuers in United States

by

Apple-PayApple updated its Apple Pay participating issuers list today with 18 additional banks, credit unions and financial institutions supporting the contactless payment service in the United States. Apple Pay now has over 400 participating issuers nationwide, and several 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:

  • Arlington Community Federal Credit Union

  • Bank of Idaho

  • BankFirst

  • Charter Bank

  • Community Bank

  • Community Bank of Oak Park River Forest

  • Corporate America Family CU

  • Credit Union of New Jersey

  • Del Norte Credit Union

  • Empower FCU

  • FORUM Credit Union

  • Gesa Credit Union

  • Institution for Savings

  • Mid-Missouri Bank

  • Owen County State Bank

  • Pacific Service Credit Union

  • Statewide Credit Union

  • Vinton County National Bank

Apple Pay remains limited to the United States and United Kingdom, although Apple is committed to an international rollout of the mobile payments service in additional countries such as Canada and China in the future. The Wall Street Journal previously reported that Apple is planning a November launch of Apple Pay in Canada.

okay, really apple. thank you for making sure that every bank in the US regardless how small, can process the Apple Pay. But seriously, when are you going to focus on getting retail outlets to actually accept Apple Pay to handle a transaction at the POS?

Yes! The limit now is MERCHANTS.

I love Apple Pay using my Watch, but I'm getting demoralized by so few merchants supporting it. I can rarely use it!

Please make this a major push during the second half of this year.

Wish they would start Apple Pay in Europe. Sigh.

They have - despite what some of our politicians and media think the UK is still in Europe

That pressure is coming in October, where afterward (Not sure if it is 10/1 or 10/31...), but after that, the merchant is liable for card fraud after that, if they don't have NFC readers.

The pressure to get the NFC terminals is coming from the card processors and card handling companies.

Unfortunately you are incorrect. The liability shift pertains to merchants purchasing readers that will accept chip and signature/pin debit and credit cards. Nowhere is it mentioned that NFC will be required and there are readers that do accept chip and signature/pin but do not have NFC capabilities.
