Does GNC Take Apple Pay in 2023? See How I Paid

A few days ago, I decided to start doing workouts and go to the gym. This decision was quite tough because I never went to the Gym, so I started asking my friends about weight gain tips; some of my friends have been doing gym for years.

Also, this was funny; when I asked them, they started taunting me; you! You have decided; really! You will go to the gym? Hahaha😅. 

I said, hmm! why? why not? Of course, I will. Jokes apart.

After asking several times, and talking for minutes, they told me that- “I must follow the diet suggested by my gym trainer; if I really want to gain weight.”

In the majority, my friends told me; the gym trainer may suggest taking a weight supplement, as I was looking to gain weight.

I was pretty much sure about the workouts and finally made up my mind to go to the gym. So, I decided to do some research before going.

Not much, but I want to know what would be the diet and which type of supplements I have to take.

After spending hours and reading many fitness and health web pages, I collected some information. 

Many of those web pages were talking about GNC products, so I decided to purchase some for myself; still, I didn’t go to Gym. 

When I went to my nearby Gym, surprise; the Gym trainer said to me to purchase a Whey Protein from GNC. 

Not instantly but after coming home, I searched for that product on the GNC website, and luckily I got it there.


When I added it to the bag and went to make payment, what I saw- there was no option for Apple Pay. I researched and found that;

“GNC doesn’t accept Apple Pay as a valid payment method at their stores and online, if you want to purchase items from their website, app, or store, you have to make payment using other payment methods rather than Apple Pay.”

This was sad, but there were several other methods that I could use. Let’s see them…

Besides Apple Pay, GNC does accept some other payment methods but has limited options.

So, I was sad for a moment because I wanted to purchase the item using my Apple Pay wallet.

One more shocking truth is- You can’t use your debit card for online payment at GNC.

“I found that GNC doesn’t have the option to make online payments via your Debit Card.”

So, which option does it have? 

Well, as valid payment options, GNC accepts Credit cards, PayPal, PayPal Credit, and GNC gift cards. A credit card could be Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, JCB, and UnionPay.

GNC takes precautions, and if your billing name and address don’t match that of the credit card used for payment, GNC has the right to cancel your order.

Note– You will be disappointed because PayPal will be unavailable to purchase back-ordered items, advance sale items, Pre-Order items, customized items, and items with a ship window greater than 20 days.

When will GNC start taking Apple Pay? Any Catchup?

Well, this is not cleared yet, but for now, GNC hasn’t included Apple Pay as one of its valid payment options.

I hope that they include it in the future.

Apple Pay is a payment method that could be easily accepted by almost all stores and online platforms. 

But unfortunately, there are such merchants/stores/shops like GNC who don’t accept it.  

So currently, there is no luck; Apple Pay payment isn’t possible for now, at the GNC, but maybe in the future- it will be.🤞
