from Volksbank will make Apple Pay available to ASN Bank and RegioBank customers from Tuesday. Payment system support for SNS customers, which is also part of Volksbank, will follow later.
Volksbank banks are the latest major banks to be connected to Apple Pay. This allows people with an iPhone or Apple Watch to pay contactless at payment terminals or on websites.
Last September, it was already announced that Volksbank planned to offer support for Apple Pay. A year earlier, discussions were already underway with Apple.
In the Netherlands, customers of ING, ABN AMRO and Rabobank have been able to use Apple’s payment system for some time. Knab and bunq also offer the service. It is unclear when SNS will follow.
