For those of you to the north, Apple Pay will launch in Canada starting tomorrow.
Apple Pay is expected to expand to its third market this week, launching in Canada this Tuesday, November 17th. As previously announced, Apple Pay will be launching through an exclusive partnership with American Express, initially limiting the reach of Apple’s payments service in the country.
The word has come down from American Express, which indicates that Apple partnered with the credit card company to help speed up discussions with major Canadian banks and other credit card companies.
Beyond Canada, Apple is also partnering with American Express to bring Apple Pay to Australia by the end of the year and to Spain, Singapore, and Hong Kong next year. Apple Pay launched in the United States alongside iOS 8 in September 2014 and expanded to the United Kingdom in July of this year.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
