Apple’s secure contactless payment system on Thursday launched in in Switzerland.
After the UK, it’s the first country in Europe to get Apple’s simple and secure payment solution. Apple Pay is now currently available in Australia, Canada, China, Singapore, Switzerland, the UK, and the USA.
Apple Pay users simply double tap their Apple Watch Side button or iPhone’s Home button and hold either near the reader for a second and the transaction is automatically and securely conducted. Card details are encrypted on the iPhone and authentication is provided by the user’s fingerprint on iPhone or by sensing contact with the Apple Watch wearer’s skin.

May Apple Pay now spread rapidly throughout Europe and the world!
