Apple Pay support

Yes sure, the fee taken to the merchants is pretty big. In fact it’s around 1.30% for a Chip & PIN payment with a MasterCard Prepaid in the UK (domestic card). But all depends ont he method, type of card etc…

I think Revolut already made the maths and is already planing to add it! :smiley:

As far as I know Revolut (or any other card issuer) does not earn anything when people use their card. The commission from the merchants goes to the POS owner (bank) and then they pay part of it to VISA/Mastercard. Please correct me if I am wrong.

“Interchange is a small fee paid by a merchant’s bank (acquirer) to a cardholder’s bank (issuer) to compensate the issuer for the value and benefits that merchants receive when they accept electronic payments. It enables banks that issue electronic payments to deliver tremendous value to merchants, governments and consumers.” — Matercard.us

Apple users should be aware that the  character only looks like an Apple logo on Apple devices. On my browser, it looks a little like this: (t)

I was pretty confused until I pasted the symbol into a web search and got Apple results.

Oops. Sorry, Pay (Apple Pay) is a shortcut with the logo for me and so simpler to write. :wink:

Apple Pay would indeed be great!

Absolutely #1 on my #ideas list!!

Your estimates are way too high. Apple Pay charges just 0.15% of the transaction value to provide transaction security services to card issuers.

I can put you guys in charge with the team responsible for tokenised payments at MasterCard if that helps @edward ?

Hey I think also that Apple Pay should be first priority because it’s will be very helpful not to carry our Revolut card always. Also Revolut is exclusively app so why its not working with Apple pay

Hmm, actually I’m not interested to have Apple Pay top-up option at all. I would like to use my Revolut card for spending with Apple Pay. :-/

Like all of us, that’s the beginning. It will be simpler at least now to top up for supported Pay countries. :slight_smile:

PS: Actually they can’t provide Pay for Spending because of a license issue. Conditions will surely be better in 6-12 months if I remember well.

I think this can’t happen because of the nature of Revolut but still I support this idea because it would be awesome.

Also it will be very good if you can add your Revolut card on your wallet to pay via NFC

Revolut will have its MasterCard Principle License in the next 6-12 months as announced to investors. We talked about this in a similar post (can search it) w/ official response. They didn’t close the way for Pay Spending down the road. :wink:

Revolut should NOT prioritize Apple exclusive services at the expense of other customers. Number one priority for Revolut should be supporting services all customers can use equally. I have to use Revolut using Bluestacks android emulation on PC because Revolute STILL doesn’t have a Windows app I can use on my Windows tablet or Windows Phone, or even a simple web app. Revolut should concentrate on getting contactless cards out to all customers, as these can be used by anyone without an app and are not tied to a specific phone model. Once that is implemented, and once they have a Universal app or web app, then they should look to supporting Android Pay, other phones using Host Card Emulation, and Apple Pay, equally.
