Last month more than 30 US banks added Apple Pay to their system. The mobile payment service continues to grow in the United States, and it has just been supported by 17 new banks in the country.
The 17 new US banks
The new American banking institutions compatible with Apple Pay are: Enrichment Federal Credit Union, First Security Bank of Arkansas, Marion & Polk Schools Credit Union, Merchants Bank of Indiana, Northern Michigan Bank & Trust, Ohnward Bank and Trust, Postel Family Credit Union, River Cities Bank, River Town Bank, Simplicity Credit Union, SouthPoint Bank, TexasBank, The Peoples Community Bank, Town & Country Bank (IL), Town & Country Bank (UT), Trius Federal Credit Union, Woori America Bank
The Cupertino firm is still negotiating with other US banks. The discussions take a long time, which explains the rather slow start of the payment system. However, Apple Pay has already grown considerably. Indeed, the payment service is now supported by more than 1,660 banks and microcredit chains.
In France, Apple Pay, however, remains behind because the banking establishments supporting it are not yet numerous enough (read: Apple Pay: Crédit Mutuel and CIC soon compatible?).
