Shopping mall anchor JCPenny announced this week that it has started accepting Apple Pay in its retail locations. Apple Pay has rolled out to all of JCPenney's stores nationwide. The retailer is also bringing its credit cards to Apple Pay, allowing customers to use the store credit card for JCPenney Rewards on purchases.
"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."
