“Apple Pay has added another 15 banks and credit unions to its spectrum of an existing 45 institutions, bringing the count to 60 since its launch in October last year,” Vaishali Gauba reports for CNBC.

Why don’t they just start listing the ones that don’t?
Finally, my bank is on the list. I was going to say, if Apple Pay goes international, before my bank is supported, I would probably change banks. Low and behold, my bank does not suck. 😛
Where’s the list?
I guess they’re referring to this list: http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT6288
In that case, I’m glad that there’s a list I can check back on every once in a while, but I’m disappointed that my bank still doesn’t support Apple Pay.
Looks like there’s one credit card that still hasn’t “Discovered” how to cater to their customers.
ditto – bastards.
Still no Santander? That’s it, I’m switching banks. My patience has finally reached an end.
That’s fantastic that Apple Pay has gained support from all these banks BUT they really need to do is get Apple Pay into MORE retailers pronto..
