Apple Q1: Apple Pay users tripled, transaction volume up 500% YOY, Comcast adding support for bill payments

During the company’s Q1 2017 earnings call today, Apple CEO Tim Cook announced some new milestones for Apple Pay. The company also confirmed that Comcast would soon begin accepting Apple Pay on the web for bill payments.

The Comcast news came alongside some stats for Apple Pay and other services shared by the company today. Cook confirmed that the number of Apple Pay users has tripled over the last year while noting billions in transactions during the December quarter alone. Transaction volume is up 500% year over year, according to the company, and the service is now in a total of 13 markets following recent launches in new countries abroad.

For Apple Pay on the web, which allows the payments service to be integrated with website checkouts, Apple noted that over 2 million small businesses— and soon Comcast— are now accepting invoice payments with the service.

In addition to Apple Pay, Apple noted all time revenue record for Services in general, which includes “Digital Content and Services, AppleCare, Apple Pay, licensing and other services.” Apple said its goal is to grow its services business— now the size of a Fortune 100 company— by double over the next four years.

The company didn’t give a specific timeline for when Comcast would begin accepting Apple Pay for bill payments but said support would arrive sometime this quarter.
