Albertsons Companies Now Offering Apple Pay Across All Stores

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

- By adding Apple Pay to our already existing range of mobile payment solutions, we can offer our iPhone and Apple Watch customers a secure and easy to use global service that makes everyday life easier, says Topi Manner, Head of Personal Banking.

After its launch in 2014 in the US, Apple Pay has so far been launched in Australia, Canada, China, France, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan, and the UK. It is in line with our retail transformation agenda and a part of the Bank's aspiration to continuously lead in providing cutting edge technology to become the preferred bank for our clients. In the UAE, Apple Insider notes, citing the company's country specific Apple Pay page, the service can be used by both Visa and Mastercard card holders of the Emirates NBD, Mashreq Bank, HSBC, RAKBANK, Standard Chartered, and Emirates Islamic.

Wirecard, a Germany-based global provider of digital payments and commerce solutions, launched a U.S. mobile wallet integration with Apple Pay®, Android Pay® and Samsung Pay®. All of the city's subway stations and buses are expected to feature the contactless payment option by late 2020, which includes Apple Pay.

In just her second tournament since the US Open, Williams struggled to dust off the cobwebs. "Not really, no", she said. First she was denied in a dramatic French Open final, losing to Jelena Ostapenko having been a set and 3-0 up.

Apple Pay is now at more than 50 percent of all retail locations in the USA, including 67 of the top 100 United States retailers. Each transaction is authorised with a one-time unique dynamic security code. When paying for goods and services on the go in apps or Safari, Apple Pay is compatible with iPhone 6 and later, iPhone SE, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, and iPad mini 3 and later.

Cue said the company desires to bring its Apple Pay mobile payments service in India.
