Apple Pay is now available in Denmark, Finland, Sweden, and UAE, though Apple is not the only tech giant with online pay platform: Google has Google pay And Samsung has Samsung Pay with other minor ones.
Debit and credit cards from participating banks can now be added to the Wallet app in each country and can be used to make purchases wherever NFC-based contactless payments are accepted. The paying system also works within apps and on the web in countries where it is available.
In Denmark, Jyske Bank (Visa debit cards only) and Nordea are supporting the system. In Finland and Sweden, Apple Pay can be used with debit and credit cards from Nordea and ST1. Edenred and N26 support will be coming soon to Finland, while Ticket Rikskuponger will support Apple Pay in Sweden in the near future.
