Apple has again expanded the number of partners for its Apple Pay payment platform. From today, we can add to the Apple Wallet app a couple of banks that we will have available to pay with our iPhone or Apple Watch: BBVA and Banca March .
With the Apple Wallet app, customers of these two banks will now be able to use the NFC chip from your Apple device to make mobile payments in all compatible stores, which are increasingly more. They will also be able to use their BBVA or Banca March account to carry out online payments in a multitude of e-commerce stores.
More banks compatible with Apple Pay in our pocket
With this announcement, BBVA and Banca March join Bankia and Banco Sabadell , which already joined this popular payment platform at the beginning of the month (at least officially). With these two new additions, more and more banks are compatible with Apple Pay, which already had in its list with entities such as Caja Rural, Evo, Bankinter, Boon, Bunq, CaixaBank, Imagin Bank, and Banco Santander.
In order to use our BBVA or Bnaca March card with ApplePay, we only have to follow the usual procedure that consists of open the Wallet app from our iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch, add the credit card number by clicking on the + symbol in the upper right corner and follow the instructions to verify the card after accepting the service conditions.
Once these steps are completed, we will only have to bring our Apple device to the NFC reader of the store corresponding and identify with our Touch ID or Face ID. We can also do it by pressing twice the side button of our Apple Watch, which will also approach that reader.
If by chance we have several cards added to the Wallet app, we can always select a default one within the settings of our device, in the section of Wallet and Apple Pay choosing which will be our ” Default card “.
Do not forget that with Apple Pay we can also make online payments with an app or in an online store. For this we must choose Apple Pay as a means of payment if we are using an iPhone or iPad also identifying with the Touch ID or Face ID, something that we can also do in the MacBook Pro with integrated Touch ID from the Safari browser .
