Today, more banks in the Netherlands announced support for ‌Apple Pay‌. Dutch challenger bank Bunq now shows up in Apple's Wallet when users in the country choose to add a card, as does Monese, N26, and Revolut.

With ‌Apple Pay‌ on iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad and Mac, customers with these banks in The Netherlands can make purchases with their digital wallet in stores, in apps and on websites.


According to Apple's regional ‌Apple Pay‌ web page, ‌Apple Pay‌ can be used in The Netherlands with several online and high street retailers including Adidas, ALDI, Amac, ARKET, BCC, Burger King, Capi, cool blue, COS, Decathlon, Douglas, H&M, Jumbo, Lidl, McDonalds, Starbucks, and others.

Dutch banks ABN AMRO and Rabobank have also announced that they are working to bring ‌Apple Pay‌ support to their customers and both expect this to roll out soon.

(Thanks, Adriaan!)

Update: ‌Apple Pay‌ has also launched in the country of Georgia for Bank of Georgia credit card holders.

I know your just the messenger, nothing wrong with that, Apple should have said..

"You can use Apple Pay *everywhere, it's ubiquitous."...
*= a very high percentage, like 99.9%.

...instead of naming businesses, reason, those above businesses get free advertisement while the small ones have to struggle and survive, they need it much more than the above ones.

It is about time. Though I'm quite happy with ABN AMRO I really hope they add Apple Pay fast.

No he hadn’t
The part including the Georgia wasn’t in the original post hence the “update”
There's no time when MR updated the article, still, you don't know.

......

As for the article above, good other banks follow, but, on the other hand, The Netherlands already had/has an exceptional system for decades, paying with PIN was there long time ago, NFC bankcards are ubiquitous for years, Apple Pay is convenient but not by a lot more.

Sanme,

While looking back through some discussion threads, I noticed your post from the other week:

We give credit to the person or organization from whom the MacRumors editors first hear of news through our tip line. To address your concern, we looked at how the news for this particular story was collected. A user named David submitted a tip about Apple Pay in Georgia at 7:50am on September 3, which was the first that the editors heard about it. Following their policy of crediting the first person to bring news to their attention, they thanked David.

Looking at your post history, I see that you made a post (here ('https://forums.macrumors.com/posts/27680609/')) about a half hour before David submitted the tip, giving the same information. But as far as I can tell, you didn't submit the tip using the "Got a tip for us? Let us know" link on the MacRumors home page. Since forum members make 5,000 to 6,000 posts or more every day, the editors don't scan forum posts to look for news. They rely on tips submitted to them.

The editors will be glad to give you credit if you submit a future tip using the front page link. Please take advantage of that when you have news to share. It helps all site visitors and forum users when the editors learn promptly about what's going on in the Apple world. Thanks!
