Apple Pay decals begin arriving with supporting merchants
Vendors who accept Apple Pay can advertise their support with new decal stickers supplied by Apple itself, which began arriving in the mail for merchants on Thursday.
In the free packages now being delivered, Apple offers two glass decals and two register decals, in two different sizes, both with the Apple Pay logo. Apple also includes a plastic tool that helps merchants apply the glass decal smoothly on the front door of their shop.
The folders holding the decals also come with instructions for how and where to apply the stickers. In included illustrations, Apple shows the decals on a point of sale terminal, at a grocery checkout counter checkout lane, and on the front door of a business.
The decal kits advertising Apple Pay acceptance became available earlier this week through the Apple Merchant Supplies website. The kits are free, though shop owners needing more than five are instructed to place their order by calling a special toll-free number.
The decal kit is another building block in Apple's nascent mobile payments rollout that first saw activation on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus devices in October. Apple Pay support will also be available on the Apple Watch when it debuts next month.
