Wendy’s fast food chains are highly popular; they follow McDonald’s, KFC, and Starbucks. They serve more than 12 million customers every day. Many people are becoming cashless, and they want to know whether Wendy’s accepts Apple Pay.
Wendy’s food lovers have been wondering for years whether the chain will start accepting Apple Pay as a payment method. Some people have even said that it might happen. Let’s get to know more about that.
Wendy’s does accept Apple Pay, but it will only work if you use the Wendy’s App. This is a relatively recent development for Wendy’s, as the chain did not accept Apple Pay when it was first launched.
Wendy’s now takes Apple Pay at its stores. Wendy’s announced that they will accept Apple Pay from its stores on February 28th, and the POS terminals are set up and ready for customers to use. Wendy’s customers can use their iPhone to pay for their food using the Apple Pay feature. Wendy’s recently introduced the feature in their app as part of their latest iOS update, i.e., version 9.3.3.
How to Pay with Apple Pay in Wendy’s?
Paying with Apple Pay at Wendy’s is easy, but somewhat annoying too. If you want to make a payment using Apple Pay on your purchases at Wendy’s, follow these steps:
Choose the payment option that is most convenient for you. If you want to pay using Apple Pay to pay for a meal, then ask an attendant if the store accepts your preferred payment method.
Once you have installed the Apple Wallet, just tap on the appropriate button to start the payment process. Once you have it set up, you can begin the payment process.
If the card you want to pay with is already selected as the default one in your Apple Wallet, go ahead and do it. If it isn’t already selected, first do what is necessary to enable the desired payment method to work. Then, begin the payment process.
Whatever authentication method your device uses, make sure you have successfully logged in to your Apple Wallet before attempting to make a payment. Do the authentication as soon as you can, as it is important for the payment process to go smoothly.
If your card is authenticated, you can continue with the payment process by simply showing your screen to the NFC card reader. The payment will be processed when a green checkmark is displayed on the payment terminal. Click on the check mark to confirm that you’ve purchased the item.
Wendy’s is one of those restaurants that accepts Apple Pay, but it’s a workaround and only works with the Wendy’s App. It’s possible that this would change over time, but it doesn’t look like it will happen anytime soon. We’re expecting to see the integration with the company’s website soon.
