UK-based fintech Revolut is bringing Apple Pay to Singapore, where users can now add their cards to Apple Pay using the Revolut app.
Revolut users in Singapore can now add their cards to Apple Pay using the Revolut app. They can also add their Revolut cards into their Apple Wallet without the need for a physical card.
Apple Pay is available on iOS devices and is accepted in the country’s public transportation networks.
Revolut offers its services for Euro and Pound Sterling bank accounts. It uses either MasterCard prepaid or Visa debit cards. The features of the cards are fee-free currency exchange, stock trading and peer-to-peer payments.
With Apple Pay support, users of the card will be able to use their iPhone or Apple Watch for purchases made in stores and businesses. They will also be able to use their iPad and Mac for making online purchases.
Users will have the opportunity to send and receive money from their friends and family via Apple Cash, Apple’s version of Venmo.
Plans for a global expansion
