Apple Pay has launched in South Africa and is going live for customers of select banks inside of the country.
MacRumors readers and bank customers on Twitter report seeing prompts to add their cards to Apple Pay. So far, it seems that only Discovery, Nedbank, and Absa customers are able to add their cards to Apple’s Wallet app.

Adding Your Credit or Debit Card to Apple Pay
Once Apple Pay arrives in their country, users can add their 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.
The full list of Apple Pay countries and regions is available on Apple’s website.
