Contactless mobile banking service Apple Pay is coming to Greece

Mobile banking Apple Pay is expanding its service to several European countries and is to come also to Greece soon. Mobile banking service N26 on March 27 on its Twitter account announced that Apple Pay will soon be available in Estonia, Greece, Portugal, Slovakia, and Slovenia, one day after revealing that Apple Pay is coming soon to Austria.

It did not specify when it’s “soon,” however according to information of insider.gr, the service could be available in Greece in June, or even a little earlier. If the timetable is kept, Greece could be the first European country where the Apple Card would be available outside the US. The Apple Card will be incorporated in the Apple Wallet.

Apple Pay is a mobile payment and digital wallet service by Apple Inc. that allows users to make payments in person, in iOS apps, and on the web. It digitizes and can replace a credit or debit card chip and PIN transaction at a contactless-capable point-of-sale terminal. Apple Pay does not require Apple Pay-specific contactless payment terminals; it works with any merchant that accepts contactless payments.

Bank customers can use the service only with the banks Apple is a partner with.

According to marcumors, Apple Pay has been gradually expanding across Europe and the Middle East, including Belgium and Kazakhstan in November, Germany in December, and Czech Republic and Saudi Arabia last month. Apple said the service, which debuted in the U.S. in October 2014, will be available in over 40 regions by the end of 2019.

    all these electronic payments are just more bricks and bars in the walls and gates of the prison. banks and third party middlemen should be totally eliminated, not celebrated!

      ueap. let’s replace money with products exchange form our urban gardens: olive oil for wheat, beef & chicken for electricity

      • thats the right idea. get the middlemen and the state out of peoples lives, and get people back to actually exchanging and cooperating in a meaningful way in their own communities.
        the hard part is that those monsters will not just go quetly away, they will fight ruthlessly to ruin us all before they lose their positions of privilege and power. 90 year old granny selling some knitting ont he sidewalk? no, absolutely not, you must starve so that our machine and its power can continue! and thats how they regard all of us.

    • One more step into the globalist spider’s web. Wait till all physical money is eliminated and 5G IT starts up! Then you can fry as you pay the bill.
