Apple added an Apple Pay landing page to its regional Mexico website late on Tuesday, indicating the mobile payment system could launch in the country imminently.

apple-pay-mexico-webpage.jpg

Way back in March there were suggestions that Apple Pay could be coming to Mexico, after reports that some iPhone users in the country had been able to add their Banregio cards to the Wallet app, with only the verification process failing.

Cards from banks other than Banregio were not able to be added to the Wallet app on the ‌iPhone‌, suggesting ‌Apple Pay‌ in Mexico could be limited to Banregio at launch.

That's still uncertain, since the Apple Pay page on Apple's Mexican website offers no launch date and doesn't list any banks that will integrate with the service. All it says is Apple Pay will be compatible with "credit and debit cards of the most important payment networks, issued by various banks," which sounds a lot like Visa, MasterCard, and American Express.

When ‌Apple Pay‌ launches in Mexico, it will be the second country in Latin America to support the payments service. Apple launched ‌Apple Pay‌ in Brazil in 2018, but has not expanded it to other Latin America countries. ‌Apple Pay‌ has also been available in the United States and Canada for years.

Apple maintains a complete list of the countries where ‌Apple Pay‌ is available on its support site, and we have a detailed Apple Pay roundup with everything you need to know about Apple's payments service.

(Thanks, Luis!)

Does this mean that we’ll be able to use Apple Pay Cash to send money to people in Mexico from the US?

And I think the landing page is giving us a hidden clue on the exact launch date: October 16th appears on many of the images, here’s an example:

It wouldn’t be the first time Apple teases the date of a future event that way. They’ve done it before.

An iPhone 8/SE 2nd Gen with Touch ID & Face ID? I think this is what some people have been asking for...

Hope it launches soon and represents an effort to launch Apple Pay in other Latin American countries in the not-too-distant future.

Nice... if they happen to support my banks! :p ... I only have Banamex and Santander. No small banks (actually much bigger than Banregio) but I wouldn't be surprised if this starts with only one (BBVA, as some said) and we have to wait for years for another one...

I just realized on the Canadian site it says " And you can send and receive money from friends and family right in Messages." But you can't in Canada.

Te sorprendería. A pesar de los desprecios de Apple, en México habemos muchos fanáticos.

¿A qué te refieres con los desprecios de Apple? En realidad tenemos buen trato por parte de Apple comparado con otros países de Latinoamérica o Asia.

This thread made me think: ¿Cuantos mexas estamos en este foro? Uno pensaría que casi no hay (y uno se equivocaría, probablemente).

He identificado algunos vatos de GDL, y uno que otro chilango, pero hasta allí.
aqui tienes un poblano....

Ni tanto. Los musulmanes (arabia saudita, emiratos arabes) reciben mejor trato que Mexico. También los chinos.

No tanto. No tenemos EKG en el reloj, no tenemos (todavía) Apple Pay, nos aumentan más de los impuestos y el tipo de cambio los precios (v.g., 699 USD más impuestos gringos, más impuestos mexicanos * 21 son 18 mil, no 20 mil)

Solo que realmente el precio son 729 y no 699. Ahi Apple mintio porque los 699 es precio de oferta solo en Estados Unidos con dos proveedores celulares de alla. Para todos los demas es 729 minimo por el iphone 12.
