Staples, a leading office supplies chain, has announced that its mobile website now accepts Apple Pay for convenient and secure payments using Safari on iPhone or iPad. The feature eliminates the requirement to manually fill out account, shipping, and billing information repeatedly for a more seamless checkout experience.

Likewise, British low-cost airline easyJet, the second-largest airline in Europe by number of passengers carried, has announced that customers can now use Apple Pay in Safari for bookings made on easyJet.com, including both its desktop website on Mac and mobile website on iPhone and iPad.

Apple Pay on the web works with iPhone 6 and later, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, and iPad mini 3 and later. iOS 10 or later is required.

Meanwhile, in Russia, Apple Pay can now be used at select BP gas stations in the Moscow, Saint-Petersburg, Pskov, Tver, Smolensk, and Novgorod regions, in addition to on the web with Safari for Russian airline Aeroflot, including both its desktop website on Mac and mobile website on iPhone and iPad.

Apple Pay officially launched in Russia earlier this week, two years after its U.S. debut. The mobile payments service is also available in Australia, Canada, China, France, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Switzerland, with New Zealand, Japan, Taiwan, and other regions set to follow in the near future.

Apple Pay on the web is a new feature in Safari on iOS 10 and macOS Sierra, expanding upon in-store and in-app payments. The feature started rolling out in September on websites such as Indiegogo, StubHub, and Wayfair, with other committed partners including Airbnb, Fandango, Target, Ticketmaster, and more.

That would definitely cause me some concern. How did you resolve this?
Since the transaction didn't go through, I pulled out my debit card and swiped it the "old fashioned" way. The clerk had no clue how Apple Pay was supposed to work in the first place (which might have been part of the problem). My iPhone would give me the "transaction complete" message, but it wouldn't appear in Wallet. I checked my bank statement after and it did show only one transaction (the swipe).

There have been other times when I haven't had any problem at Staples, but it's really inconsistent. On the other hand, Apple Pay always works reliably at my local grocery store and Walgreens. So I assume the problem is with Staples.

Funny I mentioned this "SAME post" earlier in another thread lol...

Convergence coming together in multiple industries and spanning differential market segments being made easier to live with/deal with for the sake of making our lives better using technology and mobile computing products.

I like Apple Pay and trust Apple Pay so even as little as I fly this is an added bonus and an important feature; the more easily this gains traction, the easier this will be facilitated by more mainstream airlines, including more companies in more cities (including the USA).
