JCPenney launches Apple Pay pilot program ahead of 2016 launch

JCPenney has launched a new pilot program that allows customers to use their store card with Apple Pay. It’s only available to a small number of customers right now, according to reports — but JCPenney plans to make it available to all in 2016.

The pilot program is currently being made available to those in the Dallas–Fort Worth area, reports MacRumors: “Customers with a JCPenney charge card receive a notice about the Texas pilot program when attempting to add a JCPenney card to Apple Pay using the Wallet app.”

Customers are also being told that a full launch will happen next year, at which point all JCPenny card holders will be able to use Apple Pay.

As things stand, Kohl’s is still the only major retailer that allows its store card to be used with Apple’s service, but Apple has been advertising JCPenny support for some time, with a note to say it’s coming soon.
