Apple Pay system is now available in Malaysia after a wrong beginning


Malaysia’s AmBank withdrew a premature statement. Apple Pay has finally been formally introduced in Malaysia.

Apple has now confirmed that a total of three banks are supporting the service, although only AmBank initially publicized information on its Apple Pay support. Maybank and Standard Chartered Bank are available in addition to AmBank.

In a local statement, Jennifer Bailey, Apple’s vice president of Apple Pay and Apple Wallet, said, “We are happy to offer Apple Pay to Malaysia, enabling an easier, safer, and more secure way to pay with iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, and Mac.” We believe that Apple Pay’s users would adore its simplicity and security.

Bailey stated, “With the assistance of the most well-known banks, retailers, and our customers’ favorite apps, Apple Pay will benefit our customers in Malaysia.”

These three banks, along with restaurants like McDonald’s and online retailers like Shop, are the first to accept Apple Pay in Malaysia. According to Apple, functionality for American Express cards will come “later this year.”

Apple Pay has been available in the United States for nine years, and it is still expanding internationally. Malaysia just had to wait until 2021, or one year, to receive the Apple One bundle separately.
