Q: Does Whole Foods accept Apple Pay as a payment method?

Yes, Whole Foods takes Apple Pay. The company introduced the technology into stores to accept Apple Pay, known as Near Field Communication (NFC), in 2014. The full list of in-store payment options include:

  • Apple Pay
  • Cash
  • Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT)
  • All Major Credit Cards
  • Debit Cards
  • Whole Foods Market Gift Cards
  • Visa, American Express, and Mastercard Gift Cards

You can verify if your local Whole Foods (or any store for that matter) has Apple Pay by opening up the Apple Maps app. You simply search for your local Whole Foods in the app. Once the store is pulled up, scroll down to the store information showing the store address, hours, phone number, and similar information. Here you will find a section titled “Useful to Known”, which will indicate if Apple Pay is accepted. When you pull up your local Whole Foods you should see the Apple Pay logo and/or “✔ Accepts Apple Pay”.

The above being said, both the Whole Foods website and Apple.com confirm that Apple Pay is accepted in Whole Foods stores. You should have no problem paying for your items at any Whole Foods with Apple Pay.
