HSBC has announced it now accepts Apple Pay in Singapore as of December 1. Visa and MasterCard credit cards issued by the bank can now be used with Apple Pay wherever contactless payments are accepted in the country.

Between now and January 15, 2017, the first 8,000 HSBC customers will receive $5 off every Apple Pay transaction with their HSBC credit cards, with a minimum spend of $10 per transaction. The cash back promotion is capped at $20 per customer.

Eligible cards can be added to Apple Pay by tapping "Add Credit or Debit Card" in the Wallet app on an iPhone 5 or newer. iOS 8.1 or later is required.

Apple Pay launched in Singapore in April 2016. Other participating banks in the country include DBS Bank, OCBC Bank, POSB Bank, Standard Chartered, and UOB. Non-bank-issued American Express cards are also supported.

Apple Pay also launched in Spain earlier today.

And Citibank Singapore seems to be in bed with Samsung :(

Sad to hear that Citi Singapore doesn't support Pay yet too. Been wanting to use my card since it came our in Singapore for airplane miles. Hopefully Googlian can teach Citi a lesson for sticking with samsung.

I've switched from Citibank PremierMiles to UOB Prvi Miles for that reason and because UOB actually gives a better earning rate.

This headline is confusing. "Accepting" ApplePay is something that merchants (not banks) do. "Supporting" ApplePay is what banks do.
