Many banks have announced that Apple Pay will be “coming soon” in various European countries.
Strangely, the N26 online bank canceled the Facebook post listing five of the countries involved, but its Twitter account confirmed one and announced another.
The countries are:
A MacRumors reader first paid attention to the announcement of N26:
“Coming soon! N26 will bring Apple Pay, which is transforming mobile payments with an easy, secure, private payment system that is fast and convenient for customers from Estonia, Greece, Portugal, Slovakia and Slovenia “.
Even the Bank und Sparkasse Erste has confirmed that support Apple Pay in Austria .
In the end, ING also announced its involvement in Romania , but none of these statements specified a date.
Apple Pay is available today in 18 countries through EMEA, with the recent latest involvement of the Czech Republic and Saudi Arabia .
The big news this week for Apple Pay is certainly the imminent arrival of the Apple credit card , which will be launched in the US next summer and probably in other countries later.
The card will have no commissions, minor interest from common credit cards and will be secure. It was designed for a healthier financial life and will benefit from Apple devices. Subscribing is instant and you can do it on the Wallet app on iOS. The card can be used worldwide with Apple devices. There is also a new function called ” Daily Cash “, a cash back reward system that offers 2% for every transaction made with Apple Pay. The percentages earned with the reward are deposited in a user’s Apple account. For purchases of Apple products and services, the reward rises to 3%.
There was great interest in the card despite the opinion of the sector that defined it as a non-exceptional product.
