Apple Pay comes to Singapore

apple pay sg

Apple has just announced the availability of Apple Pay in Singapore, but the digital payment service does have a caveat.

How Apple Pay works is that it allows for people to pay for both digital and physical goods using either an Apple Watch, iPad or their iPhone after hooking it up to a credit card of choice.

However, the service will be rather limited (as of the moment) simply because the service is limited to American Express card holders only. They will be opening it up to more banks like DBS, UOB and Standard Chartered over the coming months.

So far, Apple Pay is supported in the U.S, Canada, U.K, Australia and China, with  Singapore to also be the first Southeast Asian country to get an official Apple Store.

But the big question is, what will the adoption rate be like in Singapore, and is Malaysia ever going to get Apple Pay?
