Visa working to bring Apple Pay to Europe

Apple announced that it is implementing mobile payments with the launch of Apple Pay. For the time being, that possibility will be reserved for customers in the US, but Visa is working to bring the new payment system to Europe.

Chief Digital Officer of Visa Europe, Steve Perry, said in a statement to TechRadar that Visa is working closely with Apple “and with other member banks to bring this new service to market in Europe."

He said, “Apple's entry to the market represents a critical piece of the mobile payments jigsaw. This is a pivotal moment for digital payments and one that demonstrates the momentum behind mobile and contactless services."

Apple Pay will allow iPhone 6 owners to make payments by holding their device near a contactless reader with their finger on Touch ID.

Perry did not reveal when the service would launch in Europe, but at least Visa has gotten the ball rolling.
