Apple Pay picks up 26 more US banks & credit unions

Apple has updated its roster of banks and credit unions with Apple Pay to include 26 more U.S. institutions, filling in a shrinking number of coverage gaps.




As has become standard, all of the additions are regional rather that national, sometimes based around a single city. Most national card issuers were onboard within the first year of Apple Pay's Oct. 2014 launch.

The full update list follows:

  • ACIPCO Federal Credit Union
  • Arthur State Bank
  • Bank of Eastern Oregon
  • Blue Federal Credit Union
  • Capital Credit Union
  • Choice One Community Credit Union
  • City Bank
  • Community Powered Federal Credit Union
  • Dedham Savings
  • Delta Bank
  • Education Credit Union
  • First Colorado National Bank
  • First State Bank & Trust Company [MO & NE]
  • Freedom Bank
  • Glacier Hills Credit Union
  • Helena Community Credit Union
  • LifeStore Bank
  • Lincoln National Bank
  • Oregon Community Bank
  • Ridgewood Savings Bank
  • Southern Pine Credit Union
  • State Bank of Table Rock
  • Sun Community Federal Credit Union
  • Taconnet Federal Credit Union
  • Territorial Savings Bank
  • Utah Federal Credit Union


In the U.S., Apple Pay's biggest obstacle is merchant support rather than card issuers. While the platform is said to be accepted at half of the country's stores, major chains like Walmart and Target are conspicuously absent.

Apple is meanwhile continuing international expansions, one of its next targets being Brazil.
