The Cupertino tech giant has been expanding its electronic payment service ‘Apple Pay’ in South America. And the next country to get Apple Pay support soon is Chile. The tech giant teased the arrival of the service on the new Apple Pay page in Chile.
Integrated into the iPhone, Apple Pay allows users to add their debit and credit cards in their Wallet app to make quick electronic, contactless, payments via their iPhone and Apple Watch at leading retail stores. The payment system replaces physical cards and cash and reduces the size of users’ physical wallets.
It is a safe and secure system, which does not require users to download an additional app and their rewards and benefits keep adding up. Now, this system is coming to more regions.
