Apple Pay: Your full list of stores, apps, and banks supporting it

Now that iOS 8.1 is here, so is Apple Pay! The update, which launched about 90 minutes ago (at the time we publish this article), brings in Apple Pay. For those with an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, you’ll get the ability to make purchases at several point-of-sale terminals via a myriad of banks (likely yours). For those without an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, Apple Pay is still usable. To help, we’ve put together a list of apps and stores where you can use Apple Pay.

Stores

Not everywhere is equipped to handle mobile payments, and of those that are — not all will be equipped with Apple Pay. If you’ve got an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, here’s your list of stores that are implementing Apple Pay, starting today. Keep in mind that other stores, including Anthropologie, Free People, Sephora, Staples, Urban Outfitters, and Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, will be supporting Apple Pay later this year.

Banks

Just to be clear, Apple is promising over 500 banks will support Apple Pay soon. So far, American Express, Bank of America, Capital One Bank, Chase, Citi and Wells Fargo support the mobile payment system, with Barclaycard, Navy Federal Credit Union, PNC Bank, USAA and U.S. Bank coming soon. That’s all major domestic banks for the US.
