Best Buy (BBY) announced it will accept Apple (AAPL) Pay in its stores later in the year, reports Re/code, citing company statements.

A Best Buy spokesperson said it is "too early to declare" whether the company will use MCX's platform at launch, while multiple sources claimed the delay in implementing Apple Pay is partly due to exclusivity agreements with MCX.
