Sonic Drive-In does not accept Apple Pay at the time of writing, a corporate customer service representative told us.
The representative said Sonic is working on accepting Apple Pay in the future but did not give a time frame.
Sonic does, however, accept a variety of other payment methods; payment methods may vary by location.
We’ve compiled the list of available payment methods below:
- Cash: Cash is accepted at all Sonic locations.
- Debit and credit cards: All major credit cards are accepted, including Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover.
- Personal checks: Varies by location. Some Sonic Drive-In locations will accept a personal check with valid photo ID.
- Sonic gift cards: Gift cards can be used at all Sonic locations. Gift cards are also available for purchase at restaurant locations (as previously reported) and can be reloaded at the drive-in, online, or via the Sonic app.
- Sonic mobile app: Varies by location. Some Sonic Drive-In locations accept payment via the Sonic mobile app.
