“We’re pleased to be among the first retailers to offer Apple Pay technology to our customers,” said Petco CEO Jim Myers. “Making transactions faster and easier through Apple Pay will help make our store experience better and allow pet parents to get back to what’s important — spending time with their pets.”
Apple Pay will work with the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch. The service allows customers to safely store credit cards on their iPhone or Apple Watch and authorize payments through their device.
Petco and Unleashed by Petco stores have offered customers the opportunity to use mobile technology to complete transactions wirelessly since 2012. Known as “Tap and Pay,” the system allows certain credit cards and mobile devices to use Near Field Communications technology to send a customer’s payment information without swiping a card.
