Apple teases Apple Pay soon in Argentina and Peru

After a bank in Peru teased the impending launch of Apple Pay in the country last week, it’s now Apple announcing that its own payment service will soon be launching in Argentina and Peru.

As you can see on Apple Pay’s Latin America page, the company says the service is available in Costa Rica and is “coming soon to Argentina and Peru.”

Over the past year, the company has expanded its service to the Americas, with Costa Rica and Colombia receiving Apple Pay support in 2021. Now Argentina and Peru will be the two new countries to get the service, with Chile possibly next. to also support Apple’s own payment system.

In September, Banco de Chile, one of the largest banks in the South American country, allowed its customers to add their cards to the iPhone’s Wallet app to use Apple Pay. A few days later, the bank removed these cards because Apple was not yet ready to promote the service. Then, in December, Banco de Chile added terms and conditions for customers to use the service. For now, it is not known when it will be launched in the country.

In Peru, something similar happened, as Interbank began promoting the launch of Apple Pay on its website, claiming that its Visa credit cards could be added to the wallet, along with two videos showing how add card to apple wallet.

It’s not usual for Apple to tease the launch of Apple Pay via its website, although it’s good confirmation that banks in Latin America are keen to bring the service to more of their customers. clients.

In South America, Brazil was the first country to receive the service a few years ago, and the latest bank to support Apple’s own payment system is fintech Nubank.
