Apple Pay will also be rolled out in Canada with Hong Kong, Singapore and Spain going live early next year.

Online payments provider, eWay, has also made it possible for its base of online retailers to accept Apple Pay.

eWay powers 21,000 online stores and already accepts contactless American Express payments. Some of eWay’s merchants on-board with accepting Apple Pay include Kogan.com, Living Social, Brands Exclusive, Eat Now and The Home.
