As Apple Pay continues to expand in the United States, Apple prepares for the first leg of  its international expansion of the service with a U.K. launch planned for June 14th. U.K. Banks to be supported when the service launches will include First Direct, HSBC, NatWest, Nationwide Building Society, Royal Bank of Scotland, Santander and Ulster Bank. Bank of Scotland, Coutts, Halifax, Lloyds Bank, MBNA, M&S Bank and TSB Bank will come on board later in the fall.

Noticeably missing from the U.K. list is Barclays, who is at the very least delaying any Apple Pay involvement in lieu of launching its own bPay payments service. One U.K. Apple user has started an online petition aimed at convincing Barclays to offer Apple Pay compatibility to its customers.
