Apple Pay's "list" of participating banks is extremely short across the Scandinavian region, merely including Nordea and ST1 in both Sweden and Finland, as well as Denmark's local Nordea branch and Jyske Bank. The report speculates Germany, Poland, and the Netherlands being possible next launches, pointing to rumours and circumstantial evidence.

Security and privacy are at the core of Apple Pay. The company however may soon launch the service in the country, if a recent interview citing Apple's senior vice president Eddy Cue is to be believed. In stores, Apple Pay works with iPhone SE, iPhone 6 and later, Apple Watch. Clients may enhance their offerings by empowering Wirecard cardholders in the U.S.to simply add incentive and payroll cards to their mobile wallet to shop safely and securely at millions of retailers - in-stores and online. 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.
