Owners of an Apple iPhone can pay since today in Germany with Apple Pay. A good four years after the introduction of the payment service in the US, Apple has today launched its service Apple Pay in Germany. At the beginning, only a limited number of banks are involved, as Apple announced.

Banks with Apple Pay support:

German bank
DKB
Hypovereinsbank (Unicredit)
Fidor
comdirect
Hanseatic Bank
O2 Banking
N26
bunq
boon (Wirecard)
Vimpay
Edenred
American Express

Of course, we have tried Apple Pay the same time and could easily deposit our Fidor Master Card in the payment service Wallet. All you need is a credit or debit card (Mastercard, Maestro or Visa) to sign up for Apple Pay. Classic giro or bank cards are currently not supported. Unlike Google Pay, Apple Pay does not support Paypal.

NFC
Apple Pay payments with the iPhone or the Apple Watch should be possible at any NFC-enabled payment terminal, no matter if it already shows an indication of “Apple Pay”.

According to Apple, among other things, the payment of small amounts by Aldi, Lidl, Netto, Real, Kaufland, in the clothing trade at H & M and S. Oliver, at the filling stations Aral and Shell, the electronics markets Media Markt, Saturn and the fast food chains McDonalds Burger King possible.
