Costco officially brings Apple Pay support to the gas pump

We reported a couple weeks ago that there were rumors regarding Apple Pay support coming to Costco gas stations and its pumps.

A user on Reddit has discovered that the company has enabled near field communication (NFC) on its pumps, therefore, enabling users to pay with contactless payment methods such as Apple Pay at the pump.

By doing this, it allows for customers to have a safer way to pay.

Another user on Reddit said that the feature has been added at his Costco gas station in Knoxville, Tennessee, so it appears the feature is widespread at Costcos across the U.S.

However, in order to make a purchase at the gas station, you must be a member of Costco, according to the company’s website.
