Apple Pay is going global. In today’s earnings call, CEO Tim Cook announced Apple would partner with American Express to move mobile payments beyond the US and UK.
Initially, Apple Pay will find its way to Canada and Australia. After that, we can expect Apple Pay to hit Hong Kong, Spain and Singapore.
