IMG_0722Apple announced the expansion of its Apple Pay service to additional banks in Denmark, Finland, Germany, New Zealand, Poland, and Spain.

The new banks include Consors Finanz and Viabuy in Germany, ING in Spain, Arbejdernes Landsbank and Spar Nord in Denmark, Bank Millennium in Poland, Aktia in Finland, and Westpac in New Zealand.

Apple Pay made its debut in 2015 in the United States. Today it is available in numerous countries including Australia, Canada, China, Denmark, France, Ireland, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, the United Kingdom, as well as Hong Kong.

Norse bank Dansk Bank has said it will begin to support Apple Pay later this year.

Customers can make payments with Apple Pay from an Apple iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, or Mac. The use of Apple Pay does not require Apple Pay-specific contactless terminals; most such terminals support the service although acceptance is merchant specific.

Apple Pay is accepted by a wide variety of retailers including coffee houses, grocery stores, department stores, gas stations, hotels, pharmacies, restaurants, and specialty stores, as well as by many iPhone apps.
