Apple Pay is launching in Morocco today, based on backend code discovered by Apple researcher Aaron613 and subsequent confirmation by one of the country's banks.

CIH Bank is launching ‌‌Apple Pay‌‌ in the country as of Tuesday, according to the bank's Twitter account. It's not clear if other banks in Morocco will be coming on board with support for Apple's digital payment method, but it's likely.

The support means that CIH Bank's customers will be able to add their Mastercard credit cards and bank cards to the Wallet app by tapping the plus button in the top-right corner. Apple has yet to update its regional website to officially confirm the launch.

Ever since its launch in the United States in 2014, ‌‌Apple Pay‌‌ has slowly expanded to more countries worldwide while at the same time expanding the list of financial institutions that support the feature. ‌‌Apple Pay‌‌‌ can be used anywhere contactless payments are accepted with a compatible iPhone or Apple Watch. It is also accepted by select apps and websites.

I use Apple Pay everywhere I can. But by far the best use of it is on the web. When I order something online in a desktop browser "Pay by ApplePay" makes checkout so easy – just verify by Touch ID and you are done. No entering or auto-filling anything.

Welcome to the world of connivence, privacy and security to our Moroccan friends! As they were the first country to recognize the U.S., it is nice to see this benefit rolling out to the citizens.
