Apple Inc’s digital mobile payment platform, Apple Pay is reportedly now available in South Africa as the American company seeks to expand the service to Africa.
According to My Broadband, several Absa, Discovery Bank, and Nedbank customers have confirmed that they’ve been able to use the service and add money without any hiccups. Apple Pay allows users to load a supported banking card and use their Apple device – such as an iPhone or cellular Apple Watch – to make a contactless payment at supported NFC-based terminals.
Numerous MyBroadband forum members and Twitter users on Tuesday morning reported that they managed to load their banking cards to the Apple Wallet and successfully make payments with the service. Discovery Bank account holders on the MyBroadband forum started reporting that they were able to use Apple Pay after one user spotted ads from Discovery Bank for the Apple Pay platform on a Google Search.
“Managed to successfully add my Discovery Bank card – didn’t need to change region settings,” one user stated.
Apple Pay offers an easy, secure, and private way to pay on iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and Mac.
