You can commonly verify if a store like Ulta Beauty accepts Apple Pay by using the Apple Maps app. When you access the app, search for the store you wish to visit. Once you pull up the location, look for the “Useful to Know” section below the address information. In this section, you will see “✔ Accepts Apple Pay” and/or the Apple Pay logo if the store takes Apple Pay.
