Apple Pay Launches in Iceland for Landsbankinn and Arion banki Customers

Apple Pay Launches in Iceland for Landsbankinn and Arion banki Customers

Apple Pay quietly launched in Iceland on Wednesday, allowing customers of Landsbankinn and Arion banki to use Apple’s contactless payments system wherever they see the contactless payments logo.


MacRumors reports that international payment solutions company Valitor is said to have played a key role in bringing Apple Pay to the country, with Landsbankinn and Arion banki among the first Icelandic banks to announce support for the digital wallet.

The countries where Apple Pay is expected to launch next include the Netherlands and Portugal, where regional banks are already teasing that the payments solution is “coming soon.”

Apple Pay first launched in the United States in October 2014 and is now also available in the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Belgium, Switzerland, France, Japan, Spain, Italy, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Russia, New Zealand, Brazil, Poland, Ireland, Ukraine, and the United Arab Emirates.

Apple CEO Tim Cook in March announced Apple’s contactless payments solution will be available in over 40 countries and regions by the end of this year.

Adding Your Credit or Debit Card to Apple Pay

If your bank is on one of the above lists, you can now add your credit or debit card to the service by doing the following:

  • iPhone users running iOS 12 can go to the Wallet app and tap the “+” icon in the upper right-hand corner to begin, and then just follow the prompts. Users of iPads with Touch ID can add a card to the service to use in apps by going into “Settings” -> “Wallet & Apple Pay” to add a card there.
  • Apple Watch users will need to enter the Watch app on their iPhone, Tap on the “Wallet & Apple Pay” option, and then tap the “Add Credit or Debit Card” option.

For more information about the service, visit the Apple website.
