GameStop to accept Apple Pay

"Offering customers options to help simplify their purchases"

GameStop's 4,200 outlets will soon be accepting Apple Pay, according to a statement from the retailer. GameStop's Spring Mobile retail brand plans to also allow Apple Pay later in 2015.

"We are excited to make it easier and more convenient for our customers to shop at Gamestop," said Jason Cochran, senior vice president of US stores.

"Providing a positive, memorable customer experience is our top priority. Incorporating the latest in mobile technology, like Apple Pay, into our stores is another way we are offering customers options to help simplify their purchases."

Apple Pay is available through the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and the Apple Watch and around 61 retailers currently support the service.

Back in October Apple CEO Tim Cook said more than one million credit cards were activated on the company's new Apple Pay service within 72 hours of its launch.
