Best Buy is the latest major US retailer to add support for Apple Pay, first for inside its iPhone app and later in its retail store locations.
Apple Pay can be used right now to purchase items via the official Best Buy app for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. There's no word on when Best Buy's US retail locations will begin accepting Apple Pay, with the company only saying it's due sometime "later this year.". Best Buy's press release added:
Today's consumers have many different ways to spend their money and we want to give our customers as many options as possible in how they pay for goods and services at Best Buy.
The acceptance of Apple Pay in the Best Buy app is the latest enhancement for our mobile platform. We are opening a technology innovation office in Seattle this summer to focus largely on mobile and will continue to implement new tools to enhance the customer experience in this important growth area.
