SINGAPORE — If you have a credit or debit card from one of the major local banks here, you can start using tech giant Apple’s mobile payment and digital wallet service from Wednesday (May 25).

Apple Pay was limited only to American Express card members when the service was first introduced in Singapore last month.

The service has been expanded to card users from DBS/POSB, OCBC, and UOB from Wednesday. Standard Chartered is also included in this latest rollout of Apple Pay, according to information on Apple’s Singapore website. The service now also works with Visa and MasterCard.

Apple Pay can be used at various retailers, including NTUC FairPrice, Starbucks, Uniqlo, TopShop, Shaw Theatres and Din Tai Fung. Others like BreadTalk, Cold Storage, FoodRepublic, Uber and Giant will also be adding support for Apple Pay soon, Apple’s website said.

To use Apple Pay, consumers first connect their credit or debit cards to a mobile wallet. Users then pay at stores by holding their iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch close to terminals with near field communication (NFC) technology.

Singapore is the sixth country to get the service, after it was launched in the United States in 2014.
