Apple Pay with Visa and MasterCard now available in Switzerland

Apple Pay in Safari 10 and extensions

It was announced during the keynote of the past WWDC held in June and today users who are residents of Switzerland can already use the method of payment using Visa and MasterCard cards in Switzerland. Apple already said that this payment method would be available in the country and they already have it available with users in the United States, Australia, Canada, China and the United Kingdom. Soon it will also be available in France and Hong Kong, but at the moment it is already available in Switzerland.

Now in Switzerland, users can add these two cards and make payments with the iPhone or Apple Watch in stores where they have a dataphone with NFC available. The comfort and security of making payments with this method seem very interesting and should be standardized faster around the world taking into account the time it has been available, which is since 2014.

The news that comes directly from the middle AppleInsider It is one of those that we like but at the same time we are a bit envious of users who are waiting for the arrival of this payment service through the Apple Watch and iPhone in Spain. The news about the possible arrival in our country is less and less clear and it is possible that despite the official announcement of its arrival throughout this year 2016 it will come to nothing or it may never even be used here.

We are waiting for Apple to rule on it but the rumors about the arrival of this payment service are increasingly fading. The passage of time and the few or no negotiations that seem to be being carried out from Cupertino with financial institutions in Spain make us think that this could come to nothing. We will see what happens until the end of this year, while there is life there is hope.
