Apple has today issued a statement confirming the addition of 10 more banks to the list supporting Apple Pay. These include Associated Bank, BB&T, Black Hills FCU, Commerce Bank, Dupaco Community Credit Union, Idaho Central Credit Union, First Tennessee Bank, TD Bank North America, WesBanco, and UW Credit Union. Some of these, such as Commerce, TD, and UW were already quietly announced elsewhere, for instance through a list on Apple's website. The New York Times adds, however, that Amway Center in central Florida -- home to the NBA's Orlando Magic -- will be getting Apple Pay terminals as of Friday.

Sports Business Daily elaborates, saying that the Magic partnered with Levy Restaurants and Chase -- the latter an early Apple Pay backer -- to install 60 terminals at concession stands and merchandise outlets. That number should grow to 200 by the time the next NBA season starts. The Magic's CEO, Alex Martins, tells the Times that the main incentive is dealing with complaints about food and beverage lines being too long.

Apple has been steadily adding banks and merchants since Apple Pay was launched on October 20. The company has yet to expand beyond the US however, presumably because of the complexity of simultaneous negotiations with financial and retail chains.

BB&T is definitely active...Passport accepted the set up and a transaction at Subways worked perfectly.
