Along with the United States, Apple Pay is available to users in the United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia. Currently, in Canada and Australia only American Express cards can be used.

Back in late December, Apple announced a partnership with China UnionPay to bring Apple Pay to the country sometime early this year. Making the move into the extremely important China market should definitely help to grow the system.

At least 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 this year. Starbucks and other food establishments like KFC and Chili’s will support Apple Pay sometime in 2016. Cinnabon and Domino’s will also support the service soon.
