Apple Pay gained support for BJ's Wholesale Club private label credit cards and 66 new U.S. issuers on December 15, plus nearly another 60 issuers on January 5. On the merchant side, Cinnabon, Chili's, Domino's, KFC and Starbucks will support Apple Pay in the U.S. starting this year.

Banks aren't nearly as important as getting the users on board.
But it seems like those go hand in hand. If your bank doesn't support Apple Pay, you can't use it. So the banks have to come first before users can benefit.

I see American merchants are still being pathetic.

0 new merchants. When was the last time a new merchant partnered with Apple Pay?
All of my locally owned grocery stores started taking NFC payments, including Apple Pay. They're not "partnered" with Apple, per se... they just upgraded their POS units.
