Just like Google’s Android Pay, Apple is also expanding its payment service. This time, the expansion is focused on the northern Europe extension as well as to the United Arab Emirates. The service now supports banks like Emirates Islamic (Visa only), Emirates NBD, RAKBANK (Mastercard only), Mashreq, HSBC, as well as Standard Chartered Bank.
Countries in northern Europe that now support the Apple’s payment service are Finland, Sweden, and Denmark. It’s now all up to retailers to support it and Apple Pay can be used with either an iPhone or Apple Watch device running the latest software version.
