Mobile payment service Apple Pay will soon be available in Taiwan, the U.S. consumer electronics giant Apple Inc. officially announced on Wednesday.

The company said on their website that the service will allow consumers in Taiwan to use their iPhones and Apple Watches to make payments, but have not yet revealed the exact date services will start.

It said shoppers would only need to place a finger on their Touch ID sensor and hold their iPhone within an inch of the contactless reader to complete a transaction.

Apple Watch users could double-click the side button and hold the display within an inch of the contactless reader, then wait for a gentle tap that signals the purchase has been made.

Seven major banks will support the service in Apple Pay’s initial launch in Taiwan — including Cathay United Bank, CTBC Bank, E. Sun Commercial Bank, Standard Chartered Bank, Taipei Fubon Commercial Bank, Taishin International Bank and Union Bank of Taiwan, confirmed Apple.    [FULL  STORY]
