The mobile payment and digital wallet service will allow local users to make payments using their iPhone or Apple Watch.

Mobile payment and digital wallet service Apple Pay has just been introduced to Malta, thanks to online banking platform Revolut.

By adding their card to Apple Pay, Revolut users will now be able to make payments in local shops using their iPhone or Apple Watch at contactless point-of-sale terminals.

The service was launched locally yesterday. “Revolut’s ultimate goal is to give our customers a useful tool to manage every aspect of their financial lives, and the ability to make payments quickly, conveniently and securely is vital to achieving this,” Arthur Johanet, Product Owner for Card Payments at Revolut said in a statement. 

“Our customers across Europe have been requesting Apple Pay for a long time, so we are delighted to continue our rollout with 12 additional markets. This is a very positive step forward in enabling even more of our customers to use their money in the way that they want to.”

Revolut users can make use of the service by adding their card or virtual card to Apple Pay using the Revolut app or the Wallet app. 

Revolut was founded in 2015 and launched in Malta in 2018.
