How to Find Store That Accepts Apple Pay on iPhone, iPad, Mac
As you can see, a wide variety of offline and online stores accept Apple Pay. However, things might differ as per your country and region. You should look for Apple Pay and the contactless payments icon.
If a brick-and-mortar store, a website, or an app sports these icons, they should accept Apple pay. What’s more? You can also find an Apple Pay-supporting store on Apple Maps.
- Open Maps on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac.
- Search for a particular venue either by using the Search Maps bar or scrolling to its location.
- After spotting the destination, hit its name.
This will show you some information and commands like Directions, Call, Website, Address, etc.
- Under the Good to Know section, look for the Apple Pay symbol.
Note: If you’re on Mac, the Apple Pay symbol is under the same section, but it’s titled Useful to Know instead.
That’s all you need to do to locate stores that take Apple Pay using your iPhone, iPad, or Mac.
