Apple Pay officially launched in Hungary and Luxembourg on Tuesday, allowing bank card customers in the countries to use Apple’s mobile payments solution on their iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple Watch devices.
BGL BNP Paribas is currently the sole bank supporting Apple’s digital wallet in Luxembourg, while OTP Bank is the lone financial institution offering Apple Pay to its customers in Hungary.
Today’s expansion comes hot on the heels of the launch of Apple Pay in Iceland earlier this month. Banks in The Netherlands and Portugal had indicated that Apple’s payments solution is coming soon to those countries.
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.
