Apple Pay launches in France

Tuesday 19 July 2016 | 10:22 CET | News
Apple has confirmed the launch of its mobile payment system Apple Pay in France, the third country in Europe after the UK and Switzerland. The service allows iPhone users to link credit and debit cards to the Wallet app and pay at NFC terminals, using the Touch ID function on the phone. Apple Pay also works with the Apple Watch and will be available on the Safari browser on Mac computers and the iPad for online and in-app payments. In France, the service initially works with Visa and Mastercard cards issued by BPCE, Credit Agricole, Carrefour Banque and Tickets Restaurants.
