The wait seems to have finally come to an end, and as Tim Cook announced months ago, before the end of 2016 Apple Pay will be a reality in Spain. The payment system with Apple's mobile will arrive tomorrow December 1 to Spain by the hand of Banco Santander, an entity that already collaborates with the payment system in the United Kingdom since its establishment in that country, and therefore already has extensive experience with Apple Pay.
It has just been confirmed by Applesfera, who quotes sources close to the operation that have confirmed that everything is practically done so that As of December 1 we can use Apple Pay in Spain. In the absence of official confirmation from Apple and Banco Santander, unless there are unforeseen last minute in less than 24 hours we can pay with our iPhone in Spain using the cards of Santander Bank.
Apple Pay is a payment system that allows us to use our iPhone or Apple Watch to pay at any terminal compatible with contactless payments. Just add our card to the iPhone to be used as a payment system, and it will be ready to use. Depending on the financial institution we will have to identify ourselves for payments over € 20, for which we must use the TouchID of our iPhone. We can also use the Apple Watch to make payments, in this case without having to use the TouchID since it is linked to the iPhone and uses it for that identification. In addition Apple Pay is also available for payments via web through Safari on any Mac that has macOS Sierra installed. At this time no more details are known about the possible inclusion of more financial institutions in Apple Pay, but we will inform you of any last minute changes.
