Apple betaler snart til kasse og tønde, Chick-fil-A og Au Bon Pain

Apple-Pay-250x434 (1) copyApple Pay is now available at more than 2 million retail locations, with merchants such as Crate & Barrel, Chick-fil-A and Au Bon Pain set to accept the system in stores imminently, reports The Business Times.

Online tøjforhandler Zappos.com føjede også Apple Pay til sine iPhone- og iPad-apps på tirsdag efter et antal anmodninger fra kunder om at bruge funktionen.

The announcement by Apple comes alongside news that the mobile payment service exceeded the company’s goal to make it available at 1.5 million locations by the end of 2015. In-app purchases using the service also more than doubled in the last six months of 2015 compared with the first half, says the company.

På trods af den positive meddelelse har Apple stadig et arbejde for at overbevise amerikanske kunder til at bruge Apple Pay i detailforretninger. Ifølge en undersøgelse foretaget af forbrugerforsker Pymnts og InfoScout, prøvede 16.6 procent af de mennesker, der ejer nyere iPhones Apple Pay i oktober, en stigning fra 9 procent i november 2014.

Apple Pay is set to expand to China early this year, making it the fifth country to adopt the payments service since its U.S. launch in October 2014. The service expanded to the United Kingdom in July 2015, efterfulgt af Australien og Canada last November in partnership with American Express. Hong Kong, Singapore og Spanien are also expected to gain support later this year.
