Back in February it was noticed that Apple’s website had listed Apple Pay as “coming soon” to Taiwan. For those living in Taiwan or for those who are keeping an eye on Apple Pay’s expansion, you might be interested to learn that Apple has since officially launched the service in the region.
The service will be launched with support for 7 banks, so if you are living in Taiwan there’s a good chance that your Bank will be supported by Apple Pay. These banks include Taipei Fubon Commercial Bank, Cathay United Bank, E. Sun Commercial Bank, Taishin International Bank, CTBC Bank, Standard Chartered Bank and Union Bank of Taiwan. The launch in Taiwan is also the 15th market in which Apple Pay has been launched in, and while the rollout of the service is kind of slow, there is some progress.
