Apple Pay support

That’s not how it works. Apple needs to verify their new payment processor, and make sure it’s fully functional.
Also, again, more money and resources will be used if we go by your method.


#1518

This implies that Revolut will launch Apple Pay on 1st or 2nd January 2019. But given Revolut’s track record of repeatedly misleading us since April 2017 about the launch date of Apple Pay, I suspect this will not happen.


#1519

Offices are usually closed on January 1st, so you can 99.9% rule that day out.

And Revolut CS most of the time, give you vague answers that leaves your mind to wonder. And it’s already working by looking at the Twitter comments.

Like, for example able to choose between MC and Visa. Many CS reps gave different answers, but it’s the “soon!/able to do it in the future!/when it’s ready!” part that’s consistent.

If only It would be on 2nd January, but I don’t trust Revolut anymore.


#1521

Nobody gave a date. So don’t expect it will work on the 2n January maybe for Germany (but that’s also no where said) but definitly not for everyone.


#1522

Is there any news now on this topic with the banking license?


#1523

They are all over the social media stating that a launch in Germany is imminent. Probably they decided to stop using soon, and they have no idea when Apple Pay will be available. This is starting to be a joke.

Happy New Year community ! 2019 and still no Apple Pay. How soon we will lose our patience and close our accounts in protest ? :slight_smile:


#1525

It’s the first working day of 2019 and there’s still no Apple Pay. @AndreasK, why does Revolut repeatedly break its public promises with regard to Apple Pay?


#1526

They never gave an exact date.


#1527

A statement doesn’t need to give an exact date for it to be misleading or untruthful. Writing “let’s welcome 2019 with Apple Pay” implies that 2019 will start with Apple Pay, although it would be reasonable to expect it to start not on the first calendar day but on the first banking day of 2019, i.e. today.


#1528

It’s not a banking day in Scotland. That must be their getout clause! :smile:


#1529

It’s misleading but only due to poor grammar. I believe they are trying to imply that 2019 is the year that they will implement Apple Pay I.e they are welcoming - 2019 with Apple Pay.

Perhaps the tweet should read “2019 and Apple Pay, that’s something to welcome”


#1530

Close it then, just read the T&C to make sure there are no exclusion periods. Capitalism says speak with your wallet and leave if you dislike the service.


#1531

I don’t want to close it, I like Revolut. But it seems they need a push to deliver what they promised.


#1532

the 9th of January and still no apple pay support. this is unbelievable


#1533

Can you not just use the contactless on your card, or link your Revolut to a bPay wristband or something. Even a bPay sticker on your phone would work :thinking:


#1534

It’s not a question of what works. It’s a question of what is convenient. Apple Pay is far more convenient than a physical card, because it removes the need to take one’s wallet out of one’s pocket, take one’s card out of one’s wallet, put one’s card back into one’s wallet and then put one’s wallet back in one’s pocket. The same applies to women using purses and handbags. This is even more true when using Apple Pay on an Apple Watch. Apple Pay is also more secure, because its virtual card number is useless if it is copied. This prevents card cloning in countries such as Brazil, where the practice is rife.


#1535

See my suggestion of bPay. It’s contactless but in a sticker or wristband, just as convenient as Apple Pay even on the Apple Watch.

Yes but then you have to get your phone out, verify with FaceID and then after that you need to put it back in your pocket. It’s rude in my opinion to have your phone out before payment is actually due.

Isn’t it more skimming in Brazil? Like magstripe.
