Santander Bank has announced that it is now supporting Apple Pay.
The bank, which has more than two million customers across the United States, has already been offering Apple Pay support in the United Kingdom and Spain, and now finally supports its native US market with customers of MasterCard credit or debit cards.
Speaking of the US launch, Michael Cleary, Santander’s Head of Consumer and Business Banking said: “Our customers have been telling us that they want to do more on-the-go digital banking using their mobile devices.
“At Santander, we pride ourselves on listening to our customers. We’ve responded to their feedback by investing more resources in our mobile banking platform and upgrading the digital tools and services customers need to truly bank anywhere with Santander, and Apple Pay is a great example of that innovation.”
The announcement comes alongside a new Apple Pay page on its website, guiding its users through the process of adding their credit or debit card to their iPhones, iPads, Apple Watches and now MacBook Pros, following the introduction of TouchID on Mac last year.
