Apple Pay is accepted at nearly 750,000 locations in the United States and United Kingdom, and Apple is apparently looking to roll out in additional countries such as Canada and China in the near future.
Canada could be the next country to embrace the service outside of the U.S. and U.K. in November. The country has already migrated to Chip-and-PIN debit and credit cards and many retailers and businesses have since upgraded to NFC-based terminals to accept contactless payments.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
