JCPenney has reinstated Apple Pay at its stores, it emerged Thursday. The reactivation is said to have happened on June 19th (via MacRumors).
Apple Pay Returns to JCPenney After Months Away
JCPenney stopped accepting Apple Pay and other contactless payments. It followed a deadline from Visa that asked retailers to move from magnetic stripe contactless technology to newer EMV technology. A JCPenney support employee tweeted two weeks ago that the firm expected to reinstate Apple Pay by June 19.
Clearly, we are beyond that deadline, so Apple Pay and contactless payment should now be working.
