All 750 Costco stores throughout the US are now equipped with contactless payment terminals which have been an ongoing project over the past several months.

In addition, Costco is supplying its gas stations with contactless readers, the majority of which are yet to go live.

Apple landing another big partner for Apple Pay in the form of wholesale giants, Costco, was long awaited. However, it is also a smart move for Apple itself. With iPhone sales, being reportedly slower than ever, offering services to businesses is Apple's next big project. Apple Pay will also be launching at pharmacy chain CVS and popular convenience store 7-Eleven later this year.
