Apple Pay is finally beginning to spread its wings further in Australia, picking up support from ANZ Bank. As noted by Apple, customers can now register their ANZ-issued Visa and American Express cards with Apple Pay to use with the mobile payment offering.

In contrast to its rapid expansion in the U.S., this marks the first major move for Apple Pay in Australia since its initial rollout in late 2015. Upon launch, and until today, Apple Pay in Australia only supported cards issued by American Express. Hopefully we'll start to see more Australian banks extend support for Apple's contactless payment option in the near future.
