When will Apple Pay launch in Mexico?

Apple Pay is reportedly set to launch in Mexico in the coming weeks.

Some of the country’s biggest banks and financial institutions will support the service at launch, as revealed from leaked code on the Apple website.

Back in October, Apple added an Apple Pay landing page to its Mexican website, and the landing page has since been updated to confirm that the payment platform will launch “muy pronto”, or very soon.

In the past, this has meant the service will come within a week or two.

One user on Twitter, @urielarcia, found hidden code on the Apple Pay landing page in Mexico, revealing that the near-field communication payment tool will work with Banregio, Hey Banco, Inbursa, and CitiBanamex banks at launch. It’s likely that others will follow later.

The hidden code also confirmed that Best Buy, Burger King, Uber, Rappi, and La Comer would support Apple Pay in stores from day one, offering consumers a chance to try out the new service.

Apple has highlighted the benefits of Apple Pay on the new landing page website, offering consumers the ability to make more convenient and secure payments, without needing to touch money or objects during the COVID-19 pandemic.

When Apple Pay does launch in Mexico, it’ll mark the second Latin American country to introduce the service, following Brazil. The company has said that Apple Pay will continue to roll out around the world as it works with more banking institutions to deliver the service.
