Apple Pay officially arrives in Hong Kong

Apple has officially launched Apple Pay in Hong Kong. Residents will now be able to use the mobile payments service when shopping at participating retailers.

At launch, American Express issued cards are supported, along with Visa and MasterCard credit cards from the following banks:

  • HSBC
  • Hang Seng
  • DBS
  • Standard Chartered

In addition, bank support will soon include BEA HKT. In addition, there are a slew of retailers on board, including the likes of 7-11, Pizza Hut, McDonalds, Voila, ParknShop, Su-Pa-De-Pa and many, many more. You can find a more comprehensive list of supported retailers, apps and more at the official Appel Pay website for Hong Kong.

This is the second Apple Pay launch in the past day, following the service's recent rollout in France. Apple Pay is also expected to launch in Spain later in 2016.
