To add a card to Apple Pay, open the Wallet app and tap the plus symbol in the top-right corner.

Sorry I meant Apple Card coming to UK or is it only going to stay in America?
Just out of a matter of interest, If the UK Apple Card has none of the benefits of US Apple Card, such as Cash Back, Lower Interest Rate. May be you only get a small amount of cash back from Apple purchase ( App Store and Apple Store ).

Would you still want one and use it?

I hope not for VISA only. What about just debit cards? I don't live on credit…
And TWINT is useless.
The UBS debit cards (V-Pay or Maestro) do not have standard card numbers starting with a 4 or 5, respectively. Instead, they are linked directly to your bank account. Therefore, you cannot use them to pay online. V-Pay can do contactless, Maestro cannot. So here are UBS debit cards for you. You can get a credit card with a standard number for an extra CHF 20 per year, though.

That, and here (Switzerland) UBS launched a competitive service (national only, called TWINT) that they've really tried hard to push for.
The problem with TWINT is that you cannot link it to a business UBS account, which kind of makes it useless for many people.


Thanks. Never took the plunge of using Revolut, and I love Trasnferwise for… transfers but didn't know their offered cards, too now!
Yep, they call it a multi-currency account, as below:
