Here in the United States, getting financial institutions to support the mobile payment system hasn’t been an issue. The big sticking point has been getting retailers to jump on board. But the situation looks to be improving, a bit, starting next year.

Last month, Apple’s Jennifer Bailey said Starbucks and other food establishments like KFC and Chili’s will support Apple Pay sometime in 2016. Cinnabon and Domino’s will support the service soon.

Earlier this fall, the payment system arrived for some users in Australia and Canada. Apply Pay arrived in the United Kingdom in July. And a recent report said that Apple Pay could land in the very important and huge China market sometime in the first quarter of 2016.
