Apple Pay officially expanded today to two massive U.S. merchants — Target stores and Taco Bell restaurants — as well as smaller but still significant locations such as Jack in the Box restaurants, Hy-Vee supermarkets, and Speedway convenience stores.
"With the addition of these national retailers, 74 of the top 100 merchants in the US and 65 per cent of all retail locations across the country will support Apple Pay," notes Apple in a press release.
Apple launched its payment platform in 2014, which allows iPhone users to make payments at brick and mortar stores by scanning their phones — no plastic credit cards required. It slowly but surely has added more popular merchants in its four years of existence.
In addition to getting more retailers on board, Apple has been steadily adding more features to its payment platform. In 2017, it launched the person-to-person Venmo competitor Apple Pay Cash. It is also running a limited program with some universities that allow students to add their student ID cards to Apple Wallet, so they can scan to get into buildings or buy meals at dining halls.
