Apple Pay is the largest mobile payments solution outside of China by transaction volume, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise to hear that most retailers int he United States have rushed to adopt it since it launched in October 2014, including Wendy’s which began offering it in stores shortly after it launched and in its application in 2021.
Does Wendy’s Accept Apple Pay?
You can use Apple Pay on an Apple Watch or iPhone at Wendy’s in the United States, including in the drive-thru, and in the Wendy’s application when ordering ahead for collection. There are no additional charges for using Apple Pay in Wendy’s, either: You’ll incur the same charges, if any, as you would if you presented the card.
How to Use Apple Pay in Wendy’s
There are no special steps needed to use Apple Pay in Wendy’s — the process is the same as using it in any other retailer. Just let the cashier know you want to pay with Apple Pay, then follow the usual steps to launch the service on your Apple Watch or iPhone, then hold it over the card reader for a few seconds, and that’s it.
Can You Use Apple Pay for a Wendy’s Delivery?
Wendy’s doesn’t offer its own delivery service, so you’ll need to order through a partner like DoorDash, Uber Eats or Postmates — all of which accept Apple Pay. You’ll need to do some research if you’re ordering through a local offering instead, as there’s a chance, albeit a small one, they may not.
