Apple Pay launches in Sweden, Finland, Denmark and United Arab Emirates

Apple Pay Now Accounts for 90% of Global Mobile Contactless Transactions

Today Nordea brings Apple Pay to customers in Denmark, Finland and Sweden. The company confirmed the arrival in a post on its developer page.

In other Apple Pay news, the New York City Metropolitan Transportation Authority has approved a $573 million contract to take its payment terminals contactless, installing electronic readers in "500 subway turnstiles and on 600 buses in New York beginning late next year", according to The New York Times. In Denmark, it supports Nordea Group and Jyske Bank.

Naturally Apple is working to further expand Pay's reach. When you use a credit or debit card with Apple Pay, the actual card numbers are not stored on the device, nor on Apple servers. The launch of the Apple Pay means that they will be directly competing with Samsung Pay service, that was launched earlier this year.

The suspect is also alleged to have tried his luck at the home of Kim and Kanye's next door neighbor Kathy Griffin . Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have reportedly been hit by another thief.

These recent launches means that Apple Pay is now available in 20 markets but based on rumors that the feature has been spotted on Apple's site, it may soon launch in the Netherlands, Poland, Norway and Germany. The payment system is supported on iPhone 6 or later, as well as Apple Watches and iPads.

With any luck, Apple Pay will fulfill the promise of Jennifer Bailey, who oversees the service as a vice president at Apple. Increasing mobile wallet functionality offers an innovative payment experience for digital-minded consumers, and aligns with Wirecard's global strategy to provide simple and innovative commerce experiences at every customer touch point.
