Apple Pay support added for more banks in North America and Europe
Apple Pay continues to expand to more places across the globe. The mobile payment service is already available almost in every corner of the US, but Apple is trying to bring to more countries as soon as possible.

After recently introducing Apple Pay in Brazil, more banks and credit unions in the US, Canada, and France are now getting support for the service. If you live in any of the three countries mentioned, you find below the latest additions to the list banks that support Apple Pay.

Canada: Island Savings, a division of First West Credit Union, Valley First – Enderby, a division of First West Credit Union.

United States: Alliant Bank, Century Bank of the Ozarks, First Federal Savings Bank of Rochester, First Westroads Bank, Florida West Coast Credit Union, Landmark Community Bank, Legacy Bank and Trust, Lincoln Savings Bank, Michigan Schools & Government Credit Union, Noble Credit Union, Park Sterling Bank, Progressive National Bank, Sebasticook Valley Federal Credit Union, ServisFirst Bank, Springfield State Bank, State Bank & Trust Co (Iowa and Georgia now), Stewart’s Federal Credit Union, The Bank of Beaver City, United Heritage Credit Union, Unity One Credit Union, Wayne Bank and Trust Company, and Wells Bank.

France: American Express, Boursorama (Cartes Bancaires), C-Zam (Carrefour Banque), and Carrefour C-zam.

Expect the roll-out of Apple Pay to continue in the coming weeks, although most of the banks and credit unions receiving support for the mobile payment system are likely to be from the US.

So Apple added support for more banks in one incremental update than Samsung pay supports in total.

Not to mention ton of announcements in samsung pay app about added banks but you don't see them writing up to talk about added banks for non-apple based payment systems

Samsung pay supports far more retailers. Which is more important?

Ummmm, no. They didn't add over 1,400 new banks in one update. Regardless, no number of added banks will get it to work at the 9X as many places Samsung Pay works.
