Home Depot has plans to support Apple Pay after all

Following news from earlier today that Home Depot had seemingly started blocking Apple Pay at its retail outlets, the home-improvement chain confirmed to Bloomberg that it intends to offer official support for Apple Pay after it upgrades its payment terminals. From Bloomberg:

The retailer is updating its systems and intends to offer Apple Pay after the upgrade is complete, Home Depot spokesman Steve Holmes said, without providing a timetable for the rollout. The chain, which currently accepts PayPal, also may add other kinds of mobile payment, he said.

As Bloomberg notes, the rollout to Home Depot's more than 2000 stores will mark another broad expansion for Apple's budding mobile payments service.
