A convenience store aims to bring together various everyday items or food in a single establishment. All this is so that the customer finds comfort in the store and can centralize their needs in one place instead of going to several locations to meet their needs.
Among the advantages of Quiktrip as a convenience store is the appliance of contactless payment methods. Unsurprisingly, Apple Pay, one of the top-rated contactless payment systems in the United States, is linked to QuikTrip.
Apple Pay as a QuikTrip payment method
QuikTrip’s corporate vision is, “QuikTrip shares a vision of safe neighborhoods and communities. That’s why we’ve partnered with Safe Place to designate our stores as Safe Place sites for at-risk youth.” That’s why providing safety to their clientele is essential to them.
Based on this, there is arguably no better way to implement safe neighborhoods than by providing contactless payment methods. Thus, QuikTrip is associated with the Apple Pay payment system.
Apple Pay provides independence and security when paying. You may recall that QuikTrip also has branches in gas stations, where the station and the store are in the same place.
Contactless payment systems are ideal for streamlining the payment process and continuing your journey without spending a lot of time at the station when paying to refill your gas tank.
Is it Apple Pay back to QuikTrip?
In 2016, the convenience store and gas station chain decided to decouple its stores, website, and App from the Apple Pay payment system. At the time, Apple’s payment tool was not as popular as it is today, as contactless payment technology was still developing.
However, today it is positioned as one of the leading exponents of contactless payment technology.
For that reason, QuikTrip decided to link this service to its physical stores, the App, website, and gas stations once again. Therefore, Apple Pay is back with QuikTrip for good.
Is Apple Pay the only contactless payment method?
QuikTrip offers various contactless payment systems to generate variety for its customers. Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, and Google Pay are among the payment methods with this technology system.
How to use Apple Pay on QuikTrip’s platforms?
Remember that when referring to QuikTrip, we can talk about convenience stores or gas stations. In both locations, the Apple Pay system is implemented.
To pay in physical stores, you have to go to the checkout counter and tell the cashier that the payment method will be Apple Pay; they will charge the customer’s bill while the user opens their Wallet on the Apple device or iWatch.
When opening the Wallet, you can select from where you want to draw the funds to pay; it can be directly from the Wallet or one of the associated cards. The amount will appear at the point-of-sale reader; place the device on top of the reader and perform the fingerprint or facial verification.
Upon verifying, both the Apple Pay user and the QuikTrip reader will approve the transaction. The money will be subtracted from the Wallet funds, and QuikTrip will instantly receive the transaction.
At the gas station, you should look for the Apple Pay logo, i.e., the Apple apple. If it’s there (some stations have not yet implemented the service), the customer can check out and pay in the same way as they would in stores.
At the gas station, the amount to be paid appears and is scanned through the cell phone or iWatch, the customer goes through the verification system, and the QuikTrip system accepts the transaction so that the customer can continue their trip.
How to use Apple Pay for QuikTrip online shopping?
If you want to shop online at QuikTrip, you can do it with Apple Pay. The only thing you can’t buy online is gasoline because you have to go to the gas station. There are two ways to buy with this method.
Apple Pay in the QuikTrip App
QuikTrip’s App is available in the App Store, where you can find an online catalog of the products the convenience store offers.
To use the Apple Pay system in the App, you must log in to the previously created user, and if not, create one. After reviewing the catalog and having the items ready in the shopping cart, click “Checkout,” and all the payment options will appear; look for the Apple icon.
At that moment, the Wallet will open to select from which linked account you want to pay for the items. Tap on “confirm the payment,” and the fingerprint verification system will be activated to make the purchase.
Apple Pay for QuikTrip online shopping
If you would like to shop from QuikTrip’s website, you must log into your account with the same user for the App.
When you log in, you will see the catalog of available items. You can see all the different menus offered by the convenience store.
Another option is to buy gift cards from the QuikTrip website that can be used later in physical stores or other online purchases.
The payment process is the same as for the App; in the list of methods, Apple Pay will appear. Verify the purchase, and that’s it.
