We are moving to Mayo in the new year.....are contactless terminals common in Ireland?
Contactless is relatively common, I pay for my Starbuck everyday with a contactless Visa card but I've also heard of a guy from the US paying for a round of drinks in a bar with his Apple Watch. It was akin to Black Magic according to people who witnessed it ;-)
Just to note, the Apple Watch is not available for sale in Ireland and no Irish banks are participating with Apple Pay.
Yikes! So that means when I open an Irish Bank account, I cannot use that account with Apple Pay. I have an AW, but I will obviously need to use a UK account in order to use Apple Pay. Not good!
That is the case for almost all countries in the world, Apple Pay ist still a baby and it NEEDS to expand FAST. Samsung Pay and Android Pay are following up, and they are probably faster than the original.
Hmm! I have got so used to using Apple Pay here in the UK. I shall just have to wait until Irish banks are up for it!
I read a report a few months ago saying Apple were in talks with Bank of Ireland so it might not be too far off.
Good! I am opening an account with Bank of Ireland.
I presume I could still use the AW watch to pay contactless if I use a UK supported card? Not really a good idea because of the exchange charge
Yep, you can use it anywhere that accepts contactless. I'm from the North so I have Apple Pay but I can use it in the south no problem
