If you’re an Apple user, chances are you’ve heard of Apple Pay. It’s a new way to pay at checkout that’s easy, secure and private. And now many gas stations have started accepting Apple Pay as well! So if your car needs some gas or you need some snacks while on the road, you’ll be glad to know that there are plenty of places where you can use your phone at the pump instead of having to pull out your wallet. What follows is a list of all major gas station chains that now accept mobile payments like Apple Pay:
Which gas stations take Apple Pay?
- Chevron has said that it plans to accept Apple Pay at any of its 6,000 gas stations by 2020.
- ExxonMobil, Shell and BP are not currently accepting Apple Pay payments at their locations. Instead, each company offers an app that allows users to pay for gas without ever leaving the car.

Do ALL Shell gas stations take Apple Pay?
Shell stations are owned by Shell Oil Company, which is why you see the Shell brand everywhere. The same company that owns the station also owns the station’s convenience store, so if you see one of those signs saying “Stop & Shop” or “Circle K,” it means that it’s going to be part of a larger chain of stores (or even part of another parent company).
You’ll find some Shell branded gas stations that aren’t actually owned by Shell Oil Company—these include 7-Eleven, Hess, and Costco locations.
What other gas stations take Apple Pay besides ExxonMobil and BP?
The list of retailers accepting Apple Pay is growing daily, and the latest additions include gas stations like BP and ExxonMobil. This means that you can now use Apple Pay at many stores and restaurants in your area that accept mobile payments, including McDonald’s, Whole Foods Market, Walgreens and more.
Even better: if you have a Discover credit card in your wallet (or any other contactless payment enabled card), you can also use it as an alternative to using Apple Pay—the same way you would at an ExxonMobil or BP station!
Can you use Apple Pay at the pump or can you only pay inside the store?
You can use Apple Pay at the pump to pay for your gas. It’s available at many gas stations, and some chains have launched it nationwide:
In order to pay at the pump with Apple Pay, you need to first add your card to Passbook (you can do this through the Wallet app on your phone). Then when you arrive at the pump, open up that card in Passbook and hold up your iPhone within a few feet of it. The payment is made using Touch ID or Face ID—the system will detect which one works best for you so long as they’re enabled on your iPhone.
Does Chevron accept Apple Pay?
Chevron accepts Apple Pay at the pump, but not in-store. You can also use Apple Pay to pay for your Chevron gas charge at all of its stations.
Does Costco accept Apple Pay?
- Yes, Costco accepts Apple Pay.
- But no, you cannot use Apple Pay at the gas pump.
- However, you can use Apple Pay in-store or at the checkout counter to pay for your items with your iPhone 6s or later model (or iPad Pro 9.7-inch) and Touch ID. You don’t need to sign anything either! Just hold your phone near the contactless reader and scan your fingerprint on the Home button to complete payment.
- Additionally, Costco also accepts Apple Pay at its self-checkout counters if you’re trying to avoid long lines!
Does Sheetz accept Apple Pay?
Sheetz is a chain of gas stations and convenience stores. It’s owned by the Sheetz family. The family originally started out in Altoona, Pennsylvania selling milk and eggs in 1952 before expanding to store locations throughout the state. Shetiz now has over 500 locations in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia and North Carolina.
In July 2016 Sheetz was one of the first chains to accept Apple Pay across its entire network of stores nationwide (excluding New York). This makes Sheetz extremely convenient for anyone who uses Apple Pay at checkout or needs a quick snack on their way home from work!
How do you pay with Apple Pay at the pump?
To use Apple Pay at the pump, you’ll need to make sure that your phone and wallet are both open on the screen.
Once you’re ready to pay, place your phone over the card reader on the pump. You should see a screen appear on your phone with options for payment confirmation. If this doesn’t happen automatically, swipe up from the bottom of the screen and select ‘Pay with Apple Pay’.
Many of the major gas station chains now accept Apple Pay as a form of payment either in-store or at the pump.
For example, Apple Pay is accepted at more than 1 million locations. With many of the major gas station chains now accepting Apple Pay as a form of payment either in-store or at the pump, it’s easy to see how useful this can be for those who want to pay with their phone but don’t have cash on them (or who want to avoid carrying around a wallet).
The list of gas stations that accept Apple Pay is growing all the time, so you might see one or two new ones pop up in your area soon!
