7-Eleven Stores now accepts Apple Pay and Google Pay for purchases in the US.
Support for Apple Pay and Google Pay is rolling out at the majority of 7-Eleven’s U.S. stores throughout September, adding to the company’s other mobile payment options that also include Samsung Pay.
It’s been a long time coming, but 7-Eleven is about to support both of Google and Apple payment services, removing the annoyance — or sheer inconvenience — of having to handle fiddly coins or fish around for a bill whenever you hit the checkout.
According to 7-Eleven executive, Gurmeet Singh said: “Frictionless experiences are the future, and digital payments are key to such experiences.” He further added, “Consumers prefer shopping at retailers that offer digital payment capabilities.”
Apple CEO Tim Cook revealed a few months ago that Apple Pay was on its way to 7-Eleven’s 10,000 or so U.S. stores, and now it’s finally landed as 7-Eleven Stores now accepts Apple Pay.
