Apple Pay Gains Support From BNP Paribas and HSBC Banks in France


Apple Pay has received a boost in France, as two major French banks have officially announced their support for Apple’s contactless payments solution.


HSBC officially launched a dedicated support page for Apple Pay, confirming an earlier discovery by French tech news site

Meanwhile, BNP Paribas made good on an announcement last month to bring Apple Paysupport to its customers by announcing the compatibility of its Visa bank card with Apple’s digital wallet on compatible Apple devices. 

The two banks join 25 other financial institutions in the country that offer Apple Pay support to their customers.
