Revolut launches Apple Pay in 16 markets

Mobile bank, Revolut, has launched Apple Pay to its customers in the UK, France, Poland, Germany, Czech Republic, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Ireland, Belgium, Austria, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Iceland, enabling its customers to use the payment platform in stores, in apps and on websites with Touch ID, Face ID or Apple passcode.

Revolut customers can add their Revolut card to Apple Pay via the Revolut app or via the Wallet app. Also, customers without a plastic card can add a virtual card to Apple Wallet in just a few taps from the Revolut app enabling new customers to sign up and begin spending with Apple Pay in minutes.

When you use a Revolut debit card with Apple Pay, the actual card numbers are not stored on the device, nor on Apple servers. Instead, a unique Device Account Number is assigned, encrypted and securely stored in the Secure Element on your device. Each transaction is authorized with a one-time unique dynamic security code.

Our customers have been requesting Apple Pay for a long time, so we are delighted to kick off our rollout, starting with our customers in 16 markets. This is a very positive step forward in enabling our customers to use their money in the way that they want to.
