Revolut has brought Apple Pay to its customers across 16 European countries.
Apple Pay will now be available to customers in the UK, France, Poland, Germany, Czech Republic, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Ireland, Belgium, Austria, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Iceland.
This will allow customers to make purchases in stores, in app and on websites using iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad and Mac.
The fintech’s customers — who can add a virtual card to Apple Wallet — can add their Revolut card to Apple Pay via either the Revolut or Wallet app.
“Revolut’s ultimate goal is to give our customers a useful tool to manage every aspect of their financial lives, and the ability to make payments quickly, conveniently and securely is vital to achieving this,” said Arthur Johanet, product owner for card payments at Revolut.
“Our customers have been requesting Apple Pay for a long time, so we are delighted to kick off our rollout, starting with our customers in 16 markets.
“This is a very positive step forward in enabling our customers to use their money in the way that they want to.”
