McDonalds was another one of the first tranche of retailers to pledge support for Apple Pay, going live in America this week.
The firm’s US CIO said in an interview ahead of the service launch that deploying the payment technology only required minimal testing at its point of sale (POS) lab, with thousands of terminals already NFC-enabled.
"We've done full end-to-end testing that included folks from McDonald's and Apple," CIO Deborah Hall-Lefevre told ComputerworldUK's sister-site CIO. "We've closed the loop and feel very confident."
McDonald's already supports contactless payments at all of its 1,200 UK fast food outlets, so allowing customers over here to buy Big Macs with their iPhone should be just as easy.
