Millions Of Australians Will Finally Be Able To Use Apple Pay

When Apple Pay, the contactless payment service for iPhones and Apple Watches, launched last year it was only available to American Express customers.

    so the small credit unions settled? looks like most of the big banks are still fighting the fee structure.

    When is this active from? I just tried one of my cards and it wouldn't work

      The banks don't seem to have announced it yet, so I'd say it might be a while.

    Millions?? With these "banks"? Are you sure? More like hundreds.
