Fintech start-up Revolut has broadened its support for Apple Pay, verifying that from today the payment option is readily available for users in 16 European markets.
The list of supported markets is: UK, France, Poland, Germany, Czech Republic, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Ireland, Belgium, Austria, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Iceland.
Press reports last month recommended the UK challenger bank had inked Apple Pay arrangements in markets including the UK, France, Germany and Switzerland.
It’s unclear what took Revolutso long to sign up with the Apple Pay celebration.
Clients in the supported markets can include their Revolut card to Apple Paythrough the Revolut app or via Apple’s Wallet app. Those without a plastic card can add a virtual card to Apple Wallet by means of the Revolut app and are able to start spending instantly, without needing to await the physical card to show up in the post.
Commenting in statement, Arthur Johanet, product owner for card payments at Revolut, said: “Revolut’s ultimate objective is to give our customers a helpful tool to handle every aspect of their monetary lives, and the ability to pay quickly, easily and securely is crucial to achieving this. Our clients have actually been asking for Apple Pay for a very long time, so we are thrilled to start our rollout, starting with our customers in 16 markets. This is an extremely favorable advance in enabling our customers to utilize their loan in the method that they wish to.”
