Apple Pay is currently available in 33 countries but it looks like the iPhone maker might soon meet its self-imposed goal of having it available in forty countries worldwide in 2019 because the mobile payments service appears to be launching soon in a bunch of European countries.
Apple Pay will be rolling out to customers in Austria soon, according to the country’s largest bank. The Cupertino firm is working to expand global availability of its own mobile payments solution to 40 markets around the world in 2019.
Apple on Wednesday posted a series of short videos to its YouTube channel highlighting Apple Pay Cash. The clips, aptly titled ‘They Send, you spend,’ are just 15 seconds in length, but do a great job demonstrating how easy it is to send money via Messages.
Apple is gearing up to launch Apple Pay across Target, Taco Bell, Speedaway and other top merchants in the United States. With the addition of these national retailers, 74 of the top 100 US merchants now accept the mobile payment solution.
