Apple Pay launches in Ireland with support from KBC and Ulster


Apple Tuesday began a rolle-out of its mobile contactless payment service, Apple Pay, in Ireland, turning it into the 14th country where the service is available. Apple Pay is currently supported by two banks in Ireland, KBC and Ulster, but even if your primary bank isn't involved with the service, you can still use it via Boon prepay.

Apple Pay can be used with MasterCard and Visa card from participating banks, as well as through the Boon app. The latter allows users to make payments at POS terminals that accept MasterCard contactless payments, Apple Insider reports.

Apple Pay is currently available in many retail locations throughout Ireland, including stores of the following brick-and-mortar retailers:

  • ALDI
  • Amber
  • Post
  • Applegreen
  • Boots
  • Burger King
  • Centra

  • Dunnes
