Does Taco Bell Have Apple Pay?

Taco Bell takes Apple Pay at all of its points of sale: in-store, drive-thru, and its app. If you're physically inside a Taco Bell, you just have to hold your iPhone near the reader when you're ready to pay, then use Face ID to confirm the sale. The drive-thru can be a bit trickier; if you didn't order ahead of time, you'll need to lean out the window to hold your iPhone near the reader and position yourself in a way that Face ID can work. But you can also use Apple Pay in the Taco Bell app, and then pick up your order in-store or at the drive-thru. Read on to find out how.
