Apple has confirmed that it will expand Apple Pay to Latin America in the near future, with banks in Argentina and Peru expected to join Apple’s mobile payment platform soon.
On January 10, the Peruvian interbank briefly said it had started supporting Apple Pay, before removing any mention of the account feature. A week later, Apple began promoting its arrival.
An update to the Apple Pay page on Apple’s Latin America regional website includes text that translates to “Coming soon to Argentina and Peru.” Apple doesn’t say when it will arrive, but the interbank misfire indicates it could be more imminent than Apple’s website suggests.
Currently, Apple’s list of regions that support Apple Pay shows for Latin America and the Caribbean that it’s available in Colombia, Costa Rica, Brazil, and Mexico. When the expansion takes place, Argentina and Peru will be added to the list.
Previously, Apple launched Apple Pay in Azerbaijan, Colombia and Costa Rica in November 2021.
