Apple Pay seems to be expanding over on the other side of the pond.
Three of the largest banks in the region have added support for Apple Pay. Lloyds Bank, Halifax and Bank of Scotland have recently added support for Apple Pay, allowing customers to use their credit and debit cards through Apple Pay.
In addition, others on social media also indicated that Bank of Scotland is supporting Apple Pay as of Friday. No official announcement has been made from any of the three banks, nor Apple.
Apple Pay reached the UK market in July, beginning with eight regional banks and adding more than 250,000 stores.
The transaction limit was also raised last month to 30 pounds, allowing even larger purchases without entering a PIN number or signature. Support for Barclays in the U.K. is also said to be coming.
Further expansion for Apple Pay will come for U.S. customers next week, when credit card company Discover will add support. Discover will also be offering 10 percent cash back on all Apple Pay transactions on up to US$10,000 of in-store purchases.
If you’re in the UK and have had a chance to use Apple Pay over there, please let us know about your experience in the comments.
