Apple has updated its regional websites to indicate that Apple Pay is expanding to additional banks in France, Italy, and Spain.
In France, Apple Pay will be available later this year at Crédit Mutuel de Bretagne, Crédit Mutuel du Sud-Ouest, and Crédit Mutuel Massif Central, which are the three regional federations of Crédit Mutuel Arkéa. Apple Pay is also coming to Crédit Mutuel Arkéa’s online banking subsidiary Fortuneo, and Max.
In Italy, Apple Pay is now available at Banca Mediolanum for Mediolanum Card debit cards, which are based on Mastercard’s Maestro network.
In Spain, Apple Pay is now supported by Boon, a mobile wallet solution based on a prepaid account with a digital Mastercard. Boon users top-up their accounts with a debit or credit card, or via wire transfer. Boon also supports Apple Pay in the United Kingdom, France, Switzerland, Ireland, and Italy.
In Spain, Apple Pay will also be available through mobile-only bank N26 later this year. The service has a partnership with Mastercard.
Apple maintains a list of Apple Pay participating banks in Europe, although it has yet to be updated to reflect today’s additions.
