Apple Pay comes to 25 more US banks & credit unions, Italy & Spain's bunq

Apple has once more updated its roster of banks and credit unions offering Apple Pay, adding another 25 U.S. card issuers, while noting a minor expansion in Europe.




The U.S. issuers are all regional institutions, reflecting the fact that most national banks were onboard within a year of Apple Pay's October 2014 launch. The greater challenge for Apple has been merchant adoption -- some key national chains are lacking support, particularly Walmart and Target, which have opted for their own proprietary payment systems.

People in Italy and Spain can now use Apple Pay with bunq, an online-only bank which provides a Mastercard for purchases.

The full list of new U.S. issuers includes:
  • American Bank Center
  • Bank of Akron
  • Bank of the Valley
  • Benchmark Community Bank
  • Cashmere Valley Bank
  • Central Savings Bank
  • Citizens Tri-County Bank
  • Family Savings Credit Union
  • Fidelity Bank & Trust
  • Fortifi Bank
  • Frontier Bank
  • Gate City Bank
  • Hickam Federal Credit Union
  • NBH Bank
  • New Peoples Bank, Inc.
  • Omega Federal Credit Union
  • Pacific Horizon Credit Union
  • Portland Federal Credit Union
  • Santa Rosa County Federal Credit Union
  • Security Savings Bank
  • SouthCrest Bank
  • St. Mary's Bank
  • The Delaware National Bank of Delhi
  • The Stephenson National Bank & Trust
  • United Bank [AL]

    You can also refer to the fact that American Express cards are now supported in France.

    Presumably "bunk" doesn't mean in Spain what it means in America.

    With Bunq, as a Dutch bank with an european banking licence, Apple Pay is now also available in The Netherlands. Just switch in the app to Italian or Spanish region, add your card and switch region back, nice!

    Totally works! (if you don't forget to update the app (which I did (at first))).
    Made my first payment this morning.
    Using my watch.

    Getting the card onto my series 0 watch took a few tries.

    Now lets see if the other banks get off their lazy backsides.

    Yup.. All these banks are useless when you still can't use Apple pay any where.... Wal-Mart, Target, Best Buy, Home Depot, etc...
