Staples begins accepting Apple Pay at 1,400 locations
220,000 Stores Start Accepting Apple Pay

With Apple Pay seemingly off to a great start, the number of retail outlets where customers can use Apple's mobile payment platform is already expanding. Yesterday, reports surfaced indicating that 1,400 Staples locations are now accepting payment via Apple Pay. This, of course, is in addition to the Staples iOS app which has accepted Apple Pay payments since the service launched a few weeks ago.

As it stands now, Apple has 36 retail partners who officially support Apple Pay transactions. Of course, the total figure is much higher as any retail chain with NFC equipped POS machines can accept Apple Pay transactions, assuming, of course, retailers don't proactively disable support a'la Rite Aid and CVS.

Per Apple's website, the following companies will roll out support for Apple Pay "soon": Anthropologie, Free People, Urban Outfiggers, Sephora, and Walt Disney Parks and Resort.
