J.C. Penney Rolls Out Apple Pay Nationwide

J.C. Penney has rolled out Apple Pay to all of its stores nationwide.

The retailer will also make its credit card available on Apple Pay, which allows customers to earn shopping points through J.C. Penney Rewards, the retailer’s customer loyalty program.

“With Apple Pay at J.C. Penney, we’re able to offer a faster, more seamless check out process by allowing our customers to pay for their purchases by simply holding their iPhone or Apple Watch near a point-of-sale terminal, rather than inserting a chip card,” said Therace Risch, chief information officer for J.C. Penney. “And with the added convenience of our credit card as a payment option via Apple Pay, we’re giving customers another compelling reason to join our credit card and loyalty programs.”

J.C. Penney point-of-sale registers now process all Apple Pay supported credit and debit bank cards, including the company’s credit card and co-branded Mastercard.
