Apple Adds Apple Pay Details to Italian Website Ahead of Launch

Apple has updated its Italian website with an Apple Pay page, confirming its introduction in the country is close at hand.

Last month, Apple added complete translations of Apple Pay support documents to its Italian and German regional websites, indicating the launch of the mobile payment system in those countries is just a matter of time.


Today, for Italy at least, that launch appears one step closer, with the "arriving soon" web page listing UniCredit, Boon, and Carrefour Banca as participating banks.

Also today, Apple Pay launched in Ireland, making it the 14th country to accept Apple's mobile payments service.

But what if some banks & retailers want? Comdirect, N26, Aldi, Lidl, US-chains ... just guessing.

I hope, they will activate the page in Germany soon. I am optimistic.

German fingers crossed!

I`m happy today, as I`m 50/50 German/Italian. Apple? I want to use AP! Come on! German CC only. I`m sitting in a wheelchair so Apple Pay is secure and nice to have, especially, in my situation.

P.s.: Stadtsparkasse, please!

I highly doubt Stadtsparkasse will ever adopt Apple Pay. :) They are not innovative and fighting for keeping the status quo. Some are reintroducing fees for having a bank account with them !They were even suing Santander Bank for using the colour red!

It seems Sparkasse is run by old scared men with no vision. Sorry. I expect big international banks like Commerzbank or Deutsche Bank or modern young banks like comdirekt or IngDiBa to roll out Apple Pay first.

Germany would be nice but I gave up my hopes for it. Banks and retailers here don't want it to happen.

I completely understand you points and tthat is EXACTLY why i quoted you and posted a reply. Its specific to thr issues youre already facing and the inconvenience along with the security.

Since youre still going through bith without Apple Pay then my suggestion would help push the agenda further into reality vs just now waiting that hose not stupid but ignorant to your plight since they may not be exposed nor have it in their daily conciousness would be made aware.

All my post stated was to make action vs waiting for all the reasons you require AP ;)

Someone started a petition, here in Germany, for AP, 12.000 supporters, if I recall it correctly.
