Apple Pay gains 27 more US card issuers including PNC's Global Investment ServicingApple on Friday added another 27 names to the list of U.S. card issuers supporting Apple Pay, most notably expanding support for PNC cards to the bank's Global Investment Servicing division.
Such an addition is relatively rare, as over a year out from the introduction of Apple Pay, most national or multinational banks in the U.S. are already fully signed on. Today's other new entries are mostly regional banks and credit unions, servicing small regions of the U.S. or individual cities.
Apple's expansion plans in the U.S. are now focused on picking up more merchant partners. American Apparel should gain support later this year, along with a number of other businesses including Crate & Barrel, Chick-fil-A, Cinnabon, Chili's, Domino's, JCPenney, KFC, and Starbucks.
