• Apple Pay Coming to Popular Grocery Chain Trader Joe's



    U.S. grocery chain Trader Joe’s has been reported to start accepting mobile payment Apple Pay at checkout soon. It has been noted that the checkout counters at Trader Joe’s have been getting upgrades in the last few weeks and months to VeriFone touchscreen machines. According to AppleInsider, a store in Raleigh has been advertising that they are currently already accepting contactless payments in store. Although the terminals have been installed at checkout stations, not all of them have the support for Apple Pay just yet. AppleInsider noted that a Trader Joe's store in Brooklyn, NY still has not started accepting the type of payment yet, but clerks noted that it should begin sometime soon.

    Apple has not yet announced the exact date for Apple Pay support at Trader Joe's, but AppleInsider did reach out to grocery chain for an answer. However, no comments were given on the matter yet. Apparently some employees did not even know about the upcoming support for Apple Pay in their stores, while others said that it would only be an experiment. We’re not sure if these employees are just not receiving the latest news updates or they’re just not paying attention, because we are sure that this change will be universal to all Trader Joe's chains.

    There are currently more than 400 locations in the United States and they specialize in organic foods, specialty foods, and private label foods. If you shop at Trader Joe's, are you excited for them to incorporate contactless payments? Share with us in the comments below.

      Another significant addition for Apple Pay. Can hardly wait until I get a new iPhone this Fall.
