You can now use Apple Pay at CVS Pharmacy


You can now use Apple Pay at CVS Pharmacy, Apple has announced. Tim Cook noted that support would be coming for the US-based drugstore chain as well as 7-Eleven in an investor call earlier this year. 7-Eleven made the transition in early September.

Strangely, as9to5Macnotes, the stores have had the kinds of terminals that accept Apple Pay for a while, but they’ve just had the NFC functionality disabled. That’s because CVS and 7-Eleven were once on board with a rival payment system called CurrentC, which was developed by a consortium of merchants.

Today’s move leaves Target and Walmart — also early members of CurrentC — as the two biggest US retailers that don’t yet support Apple’s mobile payment technology in stores. Costco added Apple Pay support in August.
