It’s faster and easier than using cards or cash, and it protects your privacy and security.
Here, I’ll answer some of the most common questions about using Apple Pay at Lowe’s and give tips on making the most of this payment option.
How to make purchases from Lowe’s with Apple Pay
If you’re looking for a way to shop at Lowe’s and use Apple Pay, you’re in luck! There’s a simple solution that lets you buy anything you need from Lowe’s and pay with your iPhone or Apple Watch. All you need is Instacart.
Instacart is a service that delivers groceries and other items from local stores to your door. You can use it to order from Lowe’s and choose when you want your items delivered. And the best part is, you can pay with Apple Pay on Instacart’s app or website.

- Search for Lowe’s among the supported stores in your area on Instacart’s app or website.
- Browse and select the items you want from Lowe’s.
- Go to the checkout and choose your delivery time and date.
- Select Apple Pay as your payment option and confirm your order.
That’s it! You’ve just used Apple Pay for Lowe’s purchases. Plus, if you have an Apple Card, you’ll get 2% in Daily Cash on every order.
Keep in mind that not all Lowe’s locations may be available on Instacart, depending on where you live. Also, some items like prescriptions and alcohol may not be eligible for Apple Pay on Instacart.
What forms of payment does Lowes accept?
Lowes accepts a variety of payment methods, including:
- Lowes Consumer Credit Card
- Lowes Business Credit Card
- Lowes American Express Card
- American Express
You can use any of these payment methods at the checkout counter or at the self-service kiosks. You can also use them online or in the Lowes app.
Can I pay with phone at Lowes?
No, you cannot pay with your phone at Lowes using Apple Pay. Apple Pay works anywhere that takes contactless payments — from vending machines and grocery stores to taxis and subway stations. All you need is a compatible device with the latest version of iOS or iPadOS, watchOS, or macOS.
But you can download the Lowe’s app and use your smartphone to pay in store with your Lowe’s Advantage Card. Also, use the Apple Pay payment method at Lowe’s by following the steps above.
Why doesn’t Lowes use tap to pay (NFC)?
Lowe’s does not support NFC payments like Apple Pay, which let you tap your phone on a contactless payment logo to make a purchase. Lowe’s lacks the hardware and software required for this technology.
Lowes does not support tap to pay at all of its locations in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
But you can use Samsung Pay at Lowe’s, which works with the magnetic strip reader on the signature capture device instead of NFC. You can pay with your phone at Lowe’s without carrying your debit or credit cards around.
Which stores accept Apple Pay?
Apple Pay is accepted at over 85 percent of retailers in the U.S., so you can likely use it wherever and however you want. If you’re not sure, just ask.
Some of the stores that accept Apple Pay include:
- Best Buy
- Dunkin’ Donuts
- Home Depot
- Trader Joe’s
You can also use Apple Pay for purchases in Safari on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac. You can skip the lengthy checkout forms and pay with just a touch or a glance. Or use Apple Pay to subscribe to services like Apple Music, Apple News+, and Apple TV+, buy apps and games on the App Store, and upgrade your iCloud storage.
Apple Pay is a great way to pay for your purchases at Lowes and other stores. It’s fast, easy, safe, secure, and private. You can use it with your iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, or Mac, and enjoy all the benefits of your cards without carrying them around.
