20 more US banks and credit unions added to Apple Pay payment providers list

Apple has once again updated its roster of banks and credit unions supporting Apple Pay, this time adding 20 more U.S. entities.




As has become standard, the new card issuers are regional rather than national. Most national U.S. institutions were onboard with a year of Apple Pay's Oct. 2014 launch, ushered in by the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

The full list of additions includes Anahuac National Bank, ASI Federal Credit Union, Auburn State Bank, BankSouth, Burbank City Federal Credit Union, CentralAlliance Credit Union, Columbine Federal Credit Union, Connections Bank, DCH Credit Union, Hastings Federal Credit Union, Iowa-Nebraska State Bank, Lea County State Bank, LegacyTexas, McCook National Bank, Minnesota Valley Federal Credit Union, Peoples Bank [Okla.], St. Francis X. Federal Credit Union, TS Bank, West Suburban Bank, and Winchester Savings Bank.

The bigger obstacle for Apple stateside has been merchant adoption, since chains have been slow to upgrade their payment infrastructure. Big-box retailers Walmart and Target have actively refused to embrace Apple Pay, favoring their own in-house standards instead.

    I wish they'd put these back in a list instead of a paragraph. Makes it kinda hard to look at.

    My company just switched us to Chase Ink Business Preferred credit cards and I was in for a rude awakening when I discovered they don't, and never did, allow Apple Pay... and it's considered by Forbes to be the best credit card to buy an iPhone X with, ha.

    I agree, I was thinking the exact same thing. perhaps they could edit it and put as a list.

    I kept Pages '09 just for the Advanced Find & Replace for special characters, replacing ', ' with Line Feed here.
    It was the first missing feature, among others, that I had noticed when they converted to the 'All Platform' scheme and it that has yet to return still.
