    I was not able to follow this link, but I typed "Apple Pay" into the search bar of Apple Maps and it dropped pins for several places in the area that accept Apple Pay. Actually pleasantly surprised how many accept it around here.

    I've used it here and there.

    One annoyance I have with some of the terminals is that I'm still required to sign when the transaction is like $16 or something like that.

    Just used it at Walgreen's but had to use my PIN since it was my debit card. Don't have that requirement at Subway.

    This link works, thanks!

    Was still impressed that searching "Apple Pay" in Apple Maps dropped pins for all the area businesses that accept that method of payment, and more impressed with the amount of pins dropped. If Apple pay is accepted, it is what I use.

    I didn't know that Home Depot was accepting Pay again. Or at least I thought it stopped. Same with Subway. I was there yesterday and they didn't have a contact reader. I guess it's on a store by store basis.

    I was also at Lowe's- they had what I needed and Home Depot didn't. I have to make another trip, so I'll look for a reader.

    I'll just mention I've got a 5s so Pay is only through my watch, and using it is much more convenient and subtle than using a phone. It can be so quick the cashier doesn't even notice until they get the Authorized notification on their screen!

    To whoever asked, it's possible that any given store's contact reader supports Pay whether or not it's posted, but that doesn't mean they do. It's worth a shot though.

    Thanks for that link, Led!

    Use it every where possible - gas, groceries, Best Buy, etc. I use my watch. Reactions are varied. Early on, it was damn, you just paid with your watch to, how does that work.

    I try to use it wherever possible but sadly there are only 2 places near me that accept it: McDonalds and Walgreens.

    It has worked perfectly for me at Walgreens every time, I even added their rewards card and ApplePay is used for that as well. The process goes: dump items on counter for clerk to ring up, hold phone near reader and authorize for Walgreens reward card, wait for clerk to finish ringing items up, hold phone near reader and authorize for payment. It has consistently been the most reliable of any place I go to.

    On the other hand, McDonalds has become spotty the last few months. I've had difficulty getting the authorization to work with their reader. I've tried holding the phone in different positions but it has not made a difference. It will detect ApplePay and ask for my thumbprint to authorize, my phone will show the check mark that it accepted my thumbprint but the terminal will fail to register any payment having been made. I have also never tried using it in a drive through, I'm a bit shy and don't want to ask them to hold a reader out their window for me to do the transaction with ApplePay. If the reader were somehow mounted outside of the drive through window I would definitely give it a go.

    I've had odd experiences at other places where they have an NFC reader. For example, I managed to use ApplePay at a Hardee's restaurant once, but every visit after that it no longer worked. Unfortunately, I do most of my shopping at places like Target and Wal-Mart. The latter seems like a lost cause and it seems like Target may be double-backing on their original plan of supporting it towards the end of this year. I've heard Jewel-Osco is supposed to support it but none of their locations near me do.

    You mention you use it for on line purchases. I'd love to know how you do that? What sites can you buy from. I'm dying to use it for that as well so I don't have to keep giving out my credit card, but I don't know what sites take Apple Pay, or how it works.

    Thanks,
    Paul

    I used it for the second time at Panera Bread and I got yelled at by the clerk at the register for not waiting for her to enter my whole order in.

    With macOS Sierra they will implement online Apple Pay.

    http://www.apple.com/macos/sierra-preview/

    Should be pretty slick.

    Right now there are some apps that have it, but I don't use any right now, personally.

    Its just the one clerk. We went there this week and she got in trouble from the manager for yelling at customers to go to the end of the line over by bakery. Ordinarily the place is pretty good service.

    I use it fairly often when ordering things online via apps. But I've never used it at a physical store. I don't really go to McD's, Starbucks, and those kind of common places that have it available.

    Unfortunately it isn't available at the Starbucks physical store, though you can use it with the Starbucks app for online purchases.
