Apple Pay is racking up more partners.
Dozens of banks and retailers have signed on in recent weeks to work with Apple Pay, Apple’s mobile payment platform that allows users to pay for things by tapping their phones at a point-of-sale terminal, Apple announced Tuesday, according to The New York Times.
Companies such as SunTrust, Barclayard and USAA are recent additions to Apple Pay, theTimes reports. Ten banks — including TD Bank North America and Commerce Bank — are also integrating into the platform. Elsewhere, Staples, Winn-Dixie and Albertsons have begun using Apple Pay. The home of the Orlando Magic (Amway Center) is set to also begin accepting Apple Pay Friday, so basketball lovers can hit the concession stand using mobile technology.
Apple hasn’t been too specific about how much the platform has caught on, but retailers have put up some numbers that hint at Apple Pay’s success. McDonald’s, for one, said that Apple Pay accounted for 50% of its mobile payments in November, according to the Times.
Even though Apple Pay isn’t quite ubiquitous, it seems that the digital wallet is catching on a bit more than its competitors, Google Wallet and Softcard, which hit the market earlier. Apple does fancy itself as the company that perfects technology rather than rushing out the gate. Maybe it’s working.
