At the moment Apple Pay is only available in the US and Apple has yet to announce when their mobile payments system will launch in Europe.
Now it looks like Apple Pay could be headed to Europe soon as Visa has announced support for Tokenization in Europe, this technology is used by Apple Pay.
Tokenisation technology will be at the heart of new mobile payment solutions and has been hailed as one of the best data protection and fraud prevention methods available. The new service will be available for financial institutions [in Europe] from mid-April 2015.
As Visa will start to support Tokenization in Europe from April, Apple cpould possibly decide to launch Apple Pay in Europe at the same time.
As soon as we get some more details of the exact launch date of Apple’s new mobile payment system in Europe, we will let you guys know.
