Does Kroger Accept Apple Pay
Mobile payments are the new hottest thing. Samsung launched a commercial showing its phone app making it possible to pay for everything though your mobile phone (no matter where you were). The commercial even showed a customer at a small mom-and-pop store using his mobile app (how cool).

Well, that made many people want to start trying to use mobile payments for everything. After all, it makes it so that you don’t have to carry so much. Not everywhere is accepting these payments though. So, what about one of America’s favorite grocers? Does Kroger accept Apple Pay?

Forms of Payment at Kroger

Like many other grocers Kroger accepts all major debit and credit cards (American Express, Discover, MasterCard and Visa). The company also accepts cash and check as well as some EBT and WIC payments (where applicable). What hasn’t been clear to too many people is whether or not Kroger accepts Apple Pay.
