Best Buy Rolling Out In-Store Apple Pay Support in U.S.
Best Buy has accepted Apple Pay for in-app payments since April, and now the U.S. electronics retailer has begun rolling out the iPhone-based mobile payments service in stores.
A new YouTube video and Reddit thread confirm customers making successful debit and credit card purchases using both Apple Pay and Android Pay at separate Best Buy stores in California.
Best Buy is now permitted to support Apple Pay, Android Pay and other NFC payment services after its three-year exclusivity period with payment consortium Merchant Customer Exchange (MCX) expired in August. MCX has developed its own mobile payments service called CurrentC, which some retailers began testing in August but may not see a broad launch until 2016.
Best Buy has not officially announced Apple Pay availability at its U.S. retail chain, but the company did confirm in April
that it would roll out in-store support later in 2015. Best Buy joins Rite Aid
and other retailers as MCX members that now accept Apple Pay, but others such as Walmart have no plans to support the service.
