Apple Pay Launches in Mexico

Apple Pay has finally launched in Mexico, more than six years after Apple’s mobile payments service first went live in the United States. It is available to customers of Citibanamex and Banorte, two of the largest banks in the country. Cards supported include Visa, MasterCard, and American Express.

It is supported in a number of stores in Mexico, including Domino’s, 7-Eleven, Domino’s, P. F. Chang’s, and others. More will continue to be added.

The 61st Country to Add Apple Pay

Mexico is the 61st country to add support for Apple Pay. The news that it would be arriving in Mexico was first teased back in October, when Apple updated its Apple Mexico webpage to include details about Apple Pay. The page read, in translation: “Apple Pay works with the credit and debit cards of the most important payment networks, issued by various national banks. the most effective way to pay without cash.”

It’s not clear why customers in Mexico had to wait quite so long to get Apple Pay. In some countries, adoption has taken a while as a result of negotiations with local banks and financial institutions. This has sometimes been based on clashes over the financial cut Apple takes for transactions.

Apple Pay offers an easy, secure, and private way to pay on iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and Mac.

Sending and receiving money with Apple Pay and the Apple Cash card are available only in the U.S. These services are provided by Green Dot Bank, member FDIC.

Apple Card is available only in the U.S. Apple Card is issued by Goldman Sachs Bank USA, Salt Lake City Branch.

Apple Antara opened in September 2019 is the first Apple Store of its kind in Latin America, and features a pavilion design. Taking full advantage of Mexico City’s mild climate, the large sliding doors open to create a 20-foot-wide entrance to welcome visitors in from the public plaza outside. A thin profile metal roof hovers above limestone-clad walls and curved corner glass panels to create a bright great hall. The interior trees blur the boundary between inside and out, where the community can gather on stone benches in the plaza along Boulevard Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra.
“We are thrilled to open our stunning new store in central Mexico City and now welcome even more customers to Apple across this bustling city,” said Deirdre O’Brien, Apple’s senior vice president of Retail + People.
