Apple Pay expansion continues with 20+ new bank partners around the world
Yesterday we learned about Apple Pay expanding in France to HSBC France and BNP Paribas while Monese expanded its card support to seven more countries. Now Apple has updated its comprehensive list of banks and credit unions that work with the mobile payment service. These are the newest entries in the United States and around the world:
- Alliance Bank (MO)
- Bank of Deerfield
- Community Resource Bank
- First National Bank of Creston
- KH Network Credit Union
- La Salle State Bank
- North Salem State Bank
- Northwest Bank (IA)
- Pearl Hawaii Federal Credit Union
- Rushville State Bank
- The Citizens National Bank of Somerset
- Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union
- Tyndall Federal Credit Union
- Wheelhouse Credit Union
- Windsor Federal Savings & Loan
The U.S. bank list is now so long that Apple has introduced alphabetical sub-sections to make it easier to find your bank on the list. Other new entries added to the most recently updated list include Qpay in Australia; HSBC in France; Surgutneftegasbank in Russia; Banco Mediolanum in Spain; Concord bank and UkrSibbank in Ukraine; and N26 in the UK.
There have also been new ways added to use Apple Pay recently. The LA Metro rail and bus network are supporting Apple Pay through the TAP system, and Target is finally rolling out support in stores alongside Taco Bell and other US merchants.
Apple Pay lets you use your existing credit or debit card from your iPhone or Apple Watch to pay securely and privately in stores where contactless payments are accepted. Apple Pay also works in apps from the iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch, and on the web from the iPhone, iPad, and Mac.
