Apple’s mobile payment solution, Apple Pay, quickly spread in 2016 and increased the number of transactions by 450%.
According to Apple’s CEO Tim Cook’s report on Apple’s quarterly financial reports, the service has made an important effort to enter new international markets in 2016, and today it has served in 15 countries. These countries include USA, UK, Switzerland, Canada, Australia, China, France, Honk Kong, Singapore, Japan and Russia. In other words, the service has been used in the world’s richest countries. But as always, Tim Cook refused to give clear figures about Apple Pay. So it is not known how many Apple Pay users are in the world, or how many transactions they make per year.
Thanks to Apple Pay, which was launched in 2014, iOS users can complete their purchases over the phone without having to use the credit card physically at points of sale or in the online shopping through the credit card they have identified on their phone.
