Apple names first retailers to sign up to Apple Pay

Apple has announced the list of UK retailers that will be the first to accept payments via Apple Pay when the service launches in the UK.

The technology giant said over 250,000 locations will accept Apple Pay at launch, with the scheme being supported by eight UK banks across all of the major credit and debit card networks.

Starting in July, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch users will be able to make purchases anywhere contactless payments are accepted. In addition to the 39 Apple Stores in the UK, retailers and restaurants accepting Apple Pay will include Boots UK, BP, Costa Coffee, Dune, JD Sports, KFC UK & Ireland, Liberty, LIDL, Marks & Spencer, McDonald’s UK, Nando’s, New Look, Post Office, Pret A Manger, SPAR, Starbucks, SUBWAY stores, Wagamama and Waitrose. 

“Apple Pay has quickly become a big part of millions of users’ everyday shopping routines, providing a simpler, faster and more secure way to pay,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of internet software and services. “We’re thrilled to bring Apple Pay to the UK with support at launch from the most popular banks, an incredible roster of merchants and many of our users’ favourite apps.”
