Apple Watch Apple Pay 21

Apple Pay formally launched in the U.K. previously this summer with assistance from 8 banks, but especially missing from the list was popular bank Lloyds. It appears, however, that Lloyds is inching closer to launching assistance Apple Pay. As kept in mind by numerous readers, U.K. residents can now include a Lloyds card to your Wallet, and virtually complete the procedure, however the app provides a mistake at the end when you exist with the terms…

… Formerly, Lloyds customers would be presented with a “Your Issuer Does Not Yet Offer Assistance for This Card” error when attempting to include a card to Apple Pay. Now, that error no longer appears. Users can add a card like regular, however they are not able to accept the terms and conditions when presented after including the card.

While this does not provide a certain schedule for Lloyds assistance in Apple Pay, it does reveal that Apple and Lloyds are actively working behind the scenes to include assistance. It’s really possible that Apple will reveal a U.K. Apple Pay growth at its occasion next week, although that has actually clearly not been validated.

Especially still missing from supporting Apple Pay in the U.K. is Barclays. The institution has actually stated in the past that it is “truly excited” about Apple Pay and means to support it in the future for both its debit and credit cards. A certain launch date, however, stays uncertain.

Previously this week, the contactless limitation for Apple Pay in the U.K. was raised to ₤ 30. Apple Pay in the U.K. is currently supported by American Express, first direct, HSBC, NatWest, Nationwide, MBNA, Royal Bank of Scotland, Santander and Ulster.
