ISIS has slowly been adding new payment options to its forthcoming Mobile Wallet platform, and today the company has announced its first partnerships on the other side of the register — the merchants. 50 different local merchants will be working with ISIS in the service's two launch cities of Austin and Salt Lake City, including a number of restaurants, cafes, public transit options, and local sports clubs like the Utah Jazz and Salt Lake Bees. And in addition to the local partners, ISIS also announced that it has teamed up with several national merchants, which include Aéropostale, Coca-Cola, Champs, Dillard's, Foot Locker, Jamba Juice, and Macy's.

These locations will not only accept the NFC payment solution, but will also be working with ISIS to include special offers and loyalty programs for consumers. Of course, you'll also be able to use Mobile Wallet to shop at stores that aren't partners, provided they have a compatible checkout terminal. The company still hasn't given a firm date for when the service will launch, but residents in the two pilot cities can expect to start paying for things with their phones sometime this year. Check out the source link below for the full list of local partners.
