¡Buenas noticias! Apple kicked off December by launching its Apple Pay secure mobile payment service in Spain. As first reported yesterday by Spanish website Applesfera, today’s rollout makes Spain the 13th country to support Apple Pay.
Starting today, Apple customers in Spain with Mastercard credit cards issued by Banco Santander, Carrefour, and Ticket Restaurant can use Apple’s popular service to quickly and securely pay for goods and services in person via their iPhone or Apple Watch, or quickly checkout online with their Mac or iPad. Spanish American Express cardholders are also eligible to get in on the action. As for places to actually use Apple Pay, a list of supporting retailers and restaurants is now live on Apple’s Spanish website.
Today’s Apple Pay launch in Spain comes just over a month after the service rolled out in Japan. In addition to those two countries, Apple Pay is available in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, France, Switzerland, Russia, Singapore, New Zealand, Hong Kong, and China.
