In Spain, Apple says Apple Pay will be available later this year at CaixaBank and mobile-only banking app imaginBank. Visa in general will also begin supporting Apple Pay in Spain by the end of the year.

In the UK, Apple Pay is now supported by mobile-only banking app Starling Bank.

Earlier this month, Apple announced several other new and forthcoming banks with Apple Pay support in France, Italy, and Spain. Apple maintains a complete list of Apple Pay participating banks in Europe on its website.

Update: Canadian bank Tangerine says its debit cards now work with Apple Pay following credit card support last year. (Thanks, Chris!)

As N26 hinted Apple Pay will launch in Spain, Italy and France later this year, we should be close of seeing Apple Pay in Germany. More I‘m not allowed to tell... ;)

N26 tells its users when they ask about ApplePay in Germany that we have to contact Apple. N26 wants to introduce it for a long time already.

As N26 hinted Apple Pay will launch in Spain, Italy and France later this year, we should be close of seeing Apple Pay in Germany. More I‘m not allowed to tell... ;)
You don't have to...;)
I sincerely hope that you have some real inside information and are not just getting our hopes up ;)

But I think as well that ApplePay will launch in Germany later this year too. N26 will probably launch it in Germany, France, Italy and Spain at the same time.
