Apple Pay available in Spain for ING customers

Friday 18 January 2019 | 10:06 CET | News
Spanish bank ING Direct announced an agreement with Apple to make available the Apple Pay mobile payment service to ING customers throughout Spain. The m-payment service will be activated in the next few weeks, with the bank's customers simply having to access the ING Direct app and scan their MasterCard credit or debit cards via their smartphone camera, adding the card's PIN to automatically link it to Apple Pay. With the most recent iPhones, customers can use the phone's Face ID feature to verify purchases. Apple Pay was first launched in Spain in December 2016 by local bank Santander.
