Apple’s mobile payment service in Spain has gained support for credit cards issued by the local bank CaixaBank and its mobile banking brand, called ImaginBank.
According to AppleSfera (Google Translate), CaixaBank has officially confirmed in a blog post (Google Translate) that Apple Pay can already be used with its own credit cards and with those issued by its mobile banking brand ImaginBank. CaixaBank is one of the largest banks in the country with more than 6,000 branches serving 13.2 million customers.
Customers can add their CaixaBank or ImaginBank-issued card to the Wallet app on their iPhone or to the Wallet and Apple Pay section of the companion Watch app on the device.
Apple Pay in Spain is also supported by American Express and Banco Santander.
Just yesterday, the service gained support for ANZ Eftpos cards in Australia.
Apple Pay is rumored to launch soon in in Sweden, Finland and Denmark. Apple is also looking into bringing the service to India, but the company’s Senior Vice President Eddy Cue wouldn’t commit to any specific timeframe.
