Apple’s mobile payment platform Apple Pay has launched in Mexico, marking the 61st country of its launch.
The mobile payment platform first went live in the US six years back.
In Mexico, customers of Citibanamex, Banorte, American Express, and MasterCard can avail the service.
These customers can add their credit or debit card by going to the Wallet app on their iPhone. The card is also compatible with Apple Watch.
Currently, several stores in Mexico, including Domino’s, 7-Eleven, Domino’s, P. F. Chang’s will support Apple Pay.
A digital wallet, Apple Pay enables one to make transactions by moving an iPhone over a contactless reader, eliminating the need to use a physical card or enter a Pin. It can be availed by those with an iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, or an Apple Watch linked to an iPhone 5 or above.
Recently, BitPay added support for Apple Pay for its cardholders in the US.
BitPay offers cryptocurrency payment services. Through the latest move, BitPay Prepaid Mastercard holders in the US can add their cards to Apple Wallet and purchases in stores, in apps, and online using Apple Pay.
Last year, Bank of Ireland said that it will introduce Apple Pay in the near feature. It already supports Google Pay on all Android devices.
