Visa to add Apple Pay support in France and Switzerland

Apple Pay will give Visa cardholders from participating banks in the UK and soon France and Switzerland, an easy, secure and private way to pay with their mobile device, both at home and abroad.

The service allows users to upload credit and debit card information to their iPhones and Apple Watches and make in-store purchases using their devices.

Visa Europe executive director of product enablement Sandra Alzetta said: “We are living in an age of exponential innovation, giving consumers access to highly intuitive new ways to pay for the things they want, every day.

“Visa Europe is delighted to bring Apple Pay to customers in France and Switzerland so they can make easy and secure payments with their favourite Visa card.”
