So you’re on your way to Taco Bell for a late night feast and you realize you forgot your wallet at home. In fact, the only thing you’ve brought with you is your precious iPhone. As you stare at your phone it hits you, and you ask yourself, does Taco Bell take Apple Pay? Thankfully, Taco Bell makes paying for your tacos and burritos as convenient as possible. In this article, I will walk you through everything you need to know about using Apple Pay at Taco Bell. Let’s get into it.
So…Does Taco Bell Take Apple Pay?
Almost every Taco Bell location will accept Apple Pay as a form of payment.
This all depends on whether or not they have the contactless reader installed at their location.
At this time, nearly EVERY Taco Bell has a special device reader installed at the register of their location.
However, there might be a select few locations that have yet to catch up with the times.
How Does It Work Exactly?
The first step is to make sure you have Apple Pay setup on your phone.
To do this, you will need to upload your credit or debit card to your iPhone.
For more information on this, head over to Apple’s support page.
Essentially, you will head over to your wallet app and click on the “Add” button.
From there, you will add your form of payment. Then you’re good to go.
After you have Apple Pay set up on your phone, it’s incredibly convenient to use it at Taco Bell.
When you’re ready to pay, all you have to do is double-click the side button of your iPhone and it will pull up your Apple Wallet.
Then you can scan your phone at the contactless card reader device, and you walk out with your chow.
