Report: Apple Pay heading for Canadian launch in March
In the states, Apple Pay supports cards that make up 90% of credit card transaction volume, and works with over 500 banks. Expansion overseas was hinted at in a job listing that Apple posted last year, seeking people for "a new and exciting area in Apple that is set to expand across Europe, Middle East, India and Africa." Last month, we told you that a U.K. launch of the tap to pay service could take place in the first half of this year.
March could turn out to be a big month for Apple Pay with the possible launch of the Apple Watch. The smartwatch supports Apple Pay as long as the wearable is paired with the Apple iPhone 6, Apple iPhone 6 Plus, Apple iPhone 5s, Apple iPhone 5c and Apple iPhone 5.
