Apple Pay Cash reportedly starts rolling out globally

Apple's peer-to-peer payment service Apple Pay Cash, has started rolling out on a global basis. The feature, which allows users to send money through the Messages app, has reportedly appeared in Spain, Brazil, the U.K. and Ireland. Apple, however, has yet to make an official statement. Any of the cards registered in the Wallet app can be used to send a payment. Using a debit card to send the money is free, but if you use a credit card it will cost you 3% of the transaction value.

One possible feature of Apple Pay Cash that has not been tested (since there was no reason to until now) is the ability to send money to a recipient in another country. It might be best to wait for Apple to make a statement before attempting to send some cash over the U.S. border, since you might end up paying a high fee for such a transaction.

Apple Pay Cash launched in the U.S. early last December when iOS 11.2 was disseminated. The update was pushed out earlier than expected since it contained a fix to exterminate a bug that was causing iPhone models to crash.

God forbid a company make money by providing a service.

Just saying you're a moron if you pay Apple to send money to others, when you can do it through your banking app free of charge.

I am in doubt if you can send money from your credit card - free of charge by your bank
