Apple Pay is a mobile payment and digital wallet service offered by Apple Inc. This service allows the customers to make online and offline payments, in-store payments, in iOS apps, etc. Apple Pay is only supported on the iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, and Mac. It doesn’t support any client device that is not made by Apple. Therefore, Apple Pay payment options are very limited. In this article, I will discuss how you can find out if a store accepts Apple Pay. Let’s explore the content.
How To Find Out If A Store Accepts Apple Pay?
Apple Pay is a relatively new mobile payment technology that according to many technology experts will take the retail world by storm. However, at present, a few numbers of stores adopt Apple Pay. Therefore, you may find it a bit difficult to find a store that accepts Apple Pay. But there are two simple ways you can find out if a store accepts Apple Pay: look for the Apple Pay logo or ask the merchant.
1. Look For The Logo
All, mobile payment solutions have their own special logo. For example, when we want to use our credit/debit card to make payment; we usually look for the logo of Visa, MasterCard, or AmEx logos. When you see these logos, you understand that these stores will accept your payment method. Similarly, if you see the Apple Pay logo in any store then it means the store has near field communication (NFC) terminals that are able to read Apple Pay technology. NFC is similar to Bluetooth devices and it offers contactless payment. So, just look for the logo of Apple Pay to find out if it accepts Apple Pay.
2. Ask The Merchant
If you don’t find any logo of Apple Pay then what you can do is, ask the merchant if it accepts Apple Pay. If the merchant says that they accept Apple Pay then you can make the payment with your Apple Pay. However, if the merchant doesn’t accept Apple Pay then you have to look for an alternative payment option.
