Apple Pay is growing pretty fast and we have seen a lot of support from all sorts of companies, ranging from restaurants, to supermarkets, and of course let’s not forget banks. The good news is that if your bank had previously not offered their support, perhaps you’ll want to check again because in the latest update to the Apple Pay roster, Apple has added 16 more banks to their list.
This includes A+ Federal Credit Union, Amegy Bank of Texas, America First Credit Union, Bethpage Federal Credit Union, California Bank & Trust, Connex Credit Union, Goldenwest FCU, Huntington Bank, KeyPoint Credit Union, Meijer Credit Union, National Bank of Arizona, Nevada State Bank, TCF National Bank, Bank of Greene County, Vectra Bank, and Zions First National Bank.
It’s actually a mix of banks and credit unions and at this time of writing, it seems that the number of financial institutions involved in Apple Pay has increased to 45. In fact some of these institutions have found some success with Apple Pay, such as the Bank of America where they had previously reported 1.1 million card activations with Apple Pay.
It has been rumored that Apple Pay is being targeted for an international launch in the near future, with markets such as China and the UK being possibilities, although we have to wonder if Apple Pay will be able to find the same success, if not a bigger success, than they have in stateside.
