Apple Pay support goes live for nearly 40 new banks in the U.S.
Apple continues to expand its mobile payment service to more banks and financial institutions in the United States, but from time to time banks outside of Apple's home turf get Pay support.

And still many (major) retailers refuse to support it. For money (Aplle fees) reasons I might add. It's great to have your back support it but with inconsistent support from retailers, it remains crippled for almost every user. -disclaimer, I use borh Apple Pay and Samsung Pay-
