Barclays finally launches support for Apple Pay in the UK

Barclays has finally added support for Apple Pay. Account holders will now be able to attach and securely store their cards within the Apple Pay wallet for convenient use in participating stores with compatible readers. The UK bank has also published a neat new Apple Pay section of its official website with more details about how everything works.

Apple Pay has actually been in the UK for a number of months now, but Barclays has continued to frustrate customers by delaying an official launch of support. Barclays now joins the other four major banks, as well as institutes listed below:

  • American Express
  • Bank of Scotland
  • First Direct
  • Halifax
  • M&S Bank
  • MBNA
  • Nationwide Building Society
  • NatWest
  • Santander
  • Ulster Bank

Let us know how you get on with adding your Barclays cards to Apple Pay.
