Apple Pay job listing hints at upcoming international rollout in EMEIA

According to an Apple corporate job listing discovered on Wednesday, the tech giant is seeking an intern to assist in Apple Pay's EMEIA rollout, suggesting an expansion of the mobile payments solution is coming soon.



As seen in Apple's listing for an "Apple Pay Intern," first spotted by iClarified, the company plans to launch Apple Pay across Europe, Middle East, India and Africa out of its London offices.

It appears Apple has already set up a core Apple Pay team for EMEIA operations and is now looking for support with more routine legal aspects of the venture. The advertisement notes "specifically to support execution of multiple NDAs and contracts with third party partners."

Whoever snags the job will work with internal and external Apple Pay partners, including issuing banks, international payment networks and European merchants, the listing reads.

Apple has not released official numbers regarding Apple Pay's performance since it launched in the U.S. in October, but circumstantial evidence suggests the fledgling payments service is off to a good start. Last month, for example, participating retailers like Whole Foods, McDonalds and Walgreens all saw significant consumer interest and a pointed increase in touchless transactions.

In addition, Apple CEO Tim Cook recently announced more than one million credit and debit cards were registered with Apple Pay within the service's first 72 hours of operation. That number is more than the combined total of cards registered with competing solutions like Google Wallet.

    But...but... Androids have been stating (i.e. "whining", "crying") that Google Wallet combined with NFC was the best thing since sliced bread!  



    Btw... has anyone been able to prove that anyone actually used Google Wallet?  Ever?

    They need to get into New Zealand.

     

    We are among the greatest uptakers of card based payments, largely have the infrastructure already rolled out, and will pretty much be onboard from day dot.

    To what end?

     

    A comment to the clerk, or even the manager is probably going to fall on deaf ears. You need to direct your comment to someone higher up to have any possibility of them listening.
