7-Eleven on Monday said it has begun accepting Apple Pay, and Google Pay at participating U.S. stores. The stores will add support for the services throughout this month.
Apple Pay works with all iPhone models going back to the SE (successor to the iPhone 5s). It also works with Apple Watch.
7-Eleven already had a number of other mobile payment options available, including Samsung Pay.
The convenience store chain has more than 66,000 stores in 17 countries worldwide; 11,800 are in the United States.
“A 7-Eleven is a ‘hit-and-get’ kind of experience,” noted Michael Jude, program manager at Stratecast/Frost & Sullivan.
“Presumably, the faster the transaction, the better,” he told CRM Buyer, “so a little extra speed over a credit card might be attractive — but for many people, I bet not.”
