(via TechCrunch)

Apple Pay will arrive in three more countries this fall: Japan, New Zealand and Russia, and will hit the web alongside the launch of iOS 10 on September 13th. The web version of Apple’s payments service will be made available to Safari users on any Mac introduced from 2012 on, which is also running the latest operating system, macOS Sierra.

The company detailed the Japan launch of Apple Pay on stage today at its iPhone 7 event, noting in particular how the service had to be made compatible with a different version of contactless tap-to-pay… Continue reading

Apple Pay will now work with PayAnywhere, a card reader that attaches to mobile devices to accept NFC and magnetic stripe payments. That means Apple’s contactless payment solution will now work in 300,000 more places in the US, and we’re one step closer to the walletless utopia.

Apple Pay Launches In The UK

Apple Pay’s UK launch was spoiled earlier this month by lacklustre support from some of the nation’s most popular banks. HSBC and First Direct were among the notable omissions, but today they’re stepping up and giving customers the option to link their debit and credit cards. That means you can start using your iPhone or Apple Watch for contactless payments in Starbucks, Nando’s and the London Underground, as well as inside apps like Domino’s and Just Eat. Lloyds, meanwhile, has promised to support Apple Pay this autumn, but we’re still waiting on dates from Barclays, Halifax, M&S, TSB and Bank of Scotland.

If you own an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, odds are you’ve tried Apple Pay, which is Apple’s new mobile payments system that’s as safe and secure as it is easy. On the iPhone, simply open the Passbook app, choose a credit card you have on file, hold your phone up to a payment terminal, and place your finger on the Touch ID fingerprint sensor.
