Staples on Wednesday began accepting Apple Pay with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus at all of its retail stores in the U.S., joining the growing list or retailers accepting Apple's tap-to-pay checkout service.

Customers at Staples can now use Apple Pay at all of Staples' 1,400 retail locations across the U.S. In a press release, the office supply store touted the security and convenience of the new service.

In addition, the official Staples app also supports Apple Pay for completing Web-based transactions. In-app purchases with Apple Pay are compatible with the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air 2, and iPad mini 3.
