Staples, a leading office supplies chain, has announced that its mobile website now accepts Apple Pay for convenient and secure payments using Safari on iPhone or iPad. The feature eliminates the requirement to manually fill out account, shipping, and billing information repeatedly for a more seamless checkout experience.


Likewise, British low-cost airline easyJet, the second-largest airline in Europe by number of passengers carried, has announced that customers can now use Apple Pay in Safari for bookings made on easyJet.com, including both its desktop website on Mac and mobile website on iPhone and iPad.

Apple Pay on the web works with iPhone 6 and later, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, and iPad mini 3 and later. iOS 10 or later is required.

Meanwhile, in Russia, Apple Pay can now be used at select BP gas stations in the Moscow, Saint-Petersburg, Pskov, Tver, Smolensk, and Novgorod regions, in addition to on the web with Safari for Russian airline Aeroflot, including both its desktop website on Mac and mobile website on iPhone and iPad.

Apple Pay officially launched in Russia earlier this week, two years after its U.S. debut. The mobile payments service is also available in Australia, Canada, China, France, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Switzerland, with New Zealand, Japan, Taiwan, and other regions set to follow in the near future.

Apple Pay on the web is a new feature in Safari on iOS 10 and macOS Sierra, expanding upon in-store and in-app payments. The feature started rolling out in September on websites such as Indiegogo, StubHub, and Wayfair, with other committed partners including Airbnb, Fandango, Target, Ticketmaster, and more.

Funny I mentioned this "SAME post" earlier in another thread lol...

Convergence coming together in multiple industries and spanning differential market segments being made easier to live with/deal with for the sake of making our lives better using technology and mobile computing products.

I like Apple Pay and trust Apple Pay so even as little as I fly this is an added bonus and an important feature; the more easily this gains traction, the easier this will be facilitated by more mainstream airlines, including more companies in more cities (including the USA).

So Target will accept ApplePay in my browser, but not in store. Thinking like that no doubt helped cause their colossal breach years ago.

good...I am surprised this has taken off. I no longer feel self-conscious using my apple watch to pay for things.

I find that stores are mostly used to people paying with phones now. The watch really trips people out though so I don't use that to pay often.

Interesting that Staples has implemented this. I hope it works better than their in-store implementation, which has been really flaky. Sometimes it works at their POS terminals and sometimes it doesn't without an apparent reason. My iPhone will tell me the transaction's complete, but their terminal won't register it.

not sure how to get this to work.
my Mac has Sierra, my phone has ios10, both on the same iCloud account, and the Apple Pay button doesn't´t appear anywhere

That would definitely cause me some concern. How did you resolve this?

Since the transaction didn't go through, I pulled out my debit card and swiped it the "old fashioned" way. The clerk had no clue how Apple Pay was supposed to work in the first place (which might have been part of the problem). My iPhone would give me the "transaction complete" message, but it wouldn't appear in Wallet. I checked my bank statement after and it did show only one transaction (the swipe).

There have been other times when I haven't had any problem at Staples, but it's really inconsistent. On the other hand, Apple Pay always works reliably at my local grocery store and Walgreens. So I assume the problem is with Staples.

I've had similar problems in the past over here in the UK.

Not with Staples but places like Tesco, Boots the Chemist etc.

I put it down to either a. the PIN security check we have to carry out randomly to prove we're the card holder or b. an issue with the store's terminals.

Back to the article and Apple Pay on the UK Apple Store isn't present for me yet despite having all of the right hardware/software.

I have had similar troubles with some vending machines. It appears that some of the contactless terminals have had the feature intentionally turned off so the iPhone would still respond but payment wouldn't go through.
