JC Penney has announced that it is now offering Apple Pay as a payment method at its stores in the US. The company started to test out Apple Pay in some of its stores in 2015.
The company also announced that their JC Penney loyalty program has been integrated with Apple Pay.
“With Apple Pay at JCPenney, 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 JCPenney. “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.”
In store, Apple Pay works with iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone SE and Apple Watch. JCPenney 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, both issued by Synchrony Bank and available to use with Apple Pay. Customers simply add their JCPenney credit card as a payment option to Apple Pay using the Wallet or Apple Watch app on their iPhone. Plus, coming soon, customers with the JCPenney app on iPhone and iPad will have the option to complete their purchases using Apple Pay.
