    I love discovering when I business that I frequent accepts Apple Pay. I know that there are lists of merchants who accept Apple Pay on the internet, including Apple. But I thought it would be nice to share our own personal discoveries here on iMore.

    So I will start. I discovered this weekend that Aldi accepts Apple Pay.

    Both my favorite coffee shops accept it, Starbucks which you HAVE heard of, and La Colombe, which you probably have NOT heard of.

    I just learned a quick way to discover if a merchant accepts Apple Pay, thanks to Cult of Mac!

    "On your iPhone, finding whether your retail outlet takes Apple Pay is a cinch. Simply launch Maps on your device and then search for your destination. Once you find it, tap on the little title flag that’s attached to the pin on your map. You’ll get the informational page for your store, and if it accepts Apple Pay, there’ll be a little logo near the bottom of the informational section, just above the Photos."

    Wow! Really amazed the iMore writers haven't written an article on that......yet.

    I bet we see one in the next few days.

    Yep, this one.

    Very odd you all have them as whenever I leave the upstate SC area they are nowhere to be found.

    In Philly its a storefront and a street food truck, that sells Vietnamese food, mostly those Ban Mi sandwiches. Which is like THE best sandwich on the planet!

    Outside of the Midwest, I’ve only seen them in SC. They are about between here and there, just rather sparse if you ask me. They are literally everywhere here. We even have a QT plant that used to do the kitchen stuff before the remodel to put the kitchens in store.

    It is old news, according to the date of the article, which I just found today. Unfortunately, it's been quite the distraction here at work, when I'm supposed to be working.

    And so on… Yes, I'm Canadian.

    It's actually easier for me to list places that reliably don't accept Apple Pay…

    At the pump: Esso, Petro-Canada, Shell, Ultramar to name some, even if they accept contactless payments. They often accept Apple Pay at the cashier.
    Public Transit around Montréal, at least the self-service ticket machines.
