Apple Pay is on the Way to Largest Swiss Bank UBS

Apple Pay will soon be available to customers of Switzerland’s largest bank, UBS. Swiss blog Macprime reports the bank has told customers that the rollout should be complete in the coming weeks.

A teaser tweet from the bank indicates that Apple’s electronic payments solution will be available for use for its Visa cards at a minimum.

“We look forward to soon including Apple Pay in our ever-growing range of mobile payment solutions.” (From Google Translate.)

Apple Pay support launched in Switzerland in July 2016, providing support for MasterCard and Visa cards issued by Bonus Card, Cornèr Bank, and Swiss Bankers.

The full list of ‌Apple Pay‌ countries and regions is available on Apple’s website.

  • 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.
