Lloyd’s Bank Says Apple Pay ‘Coming Soon’

Posted by at 5:13 am on August 17, 2015

Lloyds bank on Friday became the latest of the dwindling holdouts to announce support for Apple Pay, telling customers in an email that the functionality will be enabled “very soon” and reminding them of what devices can be used with the service. This leaves only Bank of Scotland, Halifax, and Barclays as not having a clear window when support for Apple Pay will be offered. Barclays, which had initially declined to support Apple Pay, was forced to reverse course due to customer backlash.

Just like with other contactless payments in the UK, Apple Pay will be limited to purchases of £20 ($31) or less, rising to £30 ($47) this fall, though terminals with specific support for Apple Pay will be able to accept higher payments through the system if the merchants wish, reports MacRumors. Major retail chains with Apple Pay support highlighted by Apple include Boots, the Post Office, Costa, Starbucks, McDonald’s, KFC, Nando’s, Subway, and Transport for London.

Some major supermarkets such as Tesco and Asda have not yet announced support for Apple Pay, but smaller chains including The Co-Operative Food, Spar, Lidl, and M&S do offer the service. Supermarket chain Morrisons recently advised customers that they are now able to “use Apple Pay at all of our supermarkets, M Locals, and petrol stations.”
