Bank of America starts rolling out support for Apple Pay-powered withdrawals

Bank of America has begun rolling out support for ATM withdrawals using Apple Pay. The bank has been rolling out NFC-capable machines in select cities for a little while, and now the NFC readers on some of those machines are being switched on.

The rollout was first spotted by a Reddit user, who was able to snap some photos of the new machines (via 9to5Mac):

I also tested withdrawals at this ATM with my Chase Visa, Citibank MasterCard, Charles Schwab Visa, and UNFCU Visa debit cards in Apple Pay. All of them made it past the PIN entry and amount selection screens, but got stuck when the ATM was about to spit out the cash. The ATM gave an error that the transaction was not supported and that the card should be inserted in the card slot to continue with the transaction, so third party cards seem to not work at this point.

The possibility of Apple Pay-supported ATM withdrawals were originally reported earlier this year. In addition to Bank of America, Wells Fargo is reportedly looking to bring NFC support to its ATMs as well.
