Apple today announced that 27 new banks are being added to the roster of credit card issuers whose cards are compatible with Apple Pay. While most major banks are already included, Apple is adding smaller regional financial institutions and Credit Unions. The more cards that Apple Pay supports, the more transactions that Apple gets to keep a slice of.

In addition, Apple is beefing up the number of vendors that accept the mobile payment service. In alphabetical order, companies like American Apparel, Crate & Barrel, Chick-fil-A, Cinnabon, Chili's, Domino's, JCPenney, KFC, and Starbucks will be accepting Apple Pay sometime this year.
