Spanish financial services provider CaixaBank, owned by La Caixa, has announced that its customers can now use the Apple Pay mobile payment service throughout the country. The service is available for Visa cards issued by CaixaBank, with customers assigned a unique device account number that's encrypted and securely stored on their device.
