Apple Pay Expands to Costco Warehouse Stores
All 750 of Costco's U.S. stores now accept Apple Pay at the register. The company had been testing Apple Pay at a small number of stores since earlier this year. Costco completed the Apple Pay rollout on August 10. Costco is working to bring Apple Pay to its store-based gas stations, too, but has only gone live in a few locations. "We've added additional mobile payment options to make your next visit more convenient," said Costco in a statement provided to MacRumors. "Costco members can now use Apple Pay, Google Wallet, and Samsung Pay at U.S. Costco locations." Apple Pay will arrive at CVS and 7-Eleven stores later this year.
