According to Schnucks VP of IT Infrastructure David Steck, Schnucks completed the new payment terminal rollout to all stores in June and was certified by Apple in July.
“We’re very excited about this new payment option that we can offer our customers. To begin, users must simply link their credit or debit cards directly to their device by using the Passbook app.” Steck said. “Then all they have to do is hold their device near the contactless reader and it will let them know when their payment is successfully sent.”
Steck said payments using Apple Pay are extremely secure.
“When using Apple Pay at checkout, a unique device account number is assigned. This number, along with a transaction-specific dynamic security code, is used to process your payment so your actual credit or debit card numbers are never shared by Apple or transmitted with payment,” he said.
This feature is available on iPhone 6, Apple Watch, iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3.
Founded in St. Louis in 1939, Schnuck Markets, Inc. operates 98 stores and 93 in-store pharmacies in Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and Iowa.
