Apple Pay to be Made Available to Mastercard Users in Croatia

Lauren Simmonds

In a country which doesn’t even like regular banks and card payments at the best of times, favouring cash transactions, yet another step in the right direction has been taken by Croatia, at least in terms of technology, as Apple Pay arrives in the country.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 26th of June, 2019, the much talked about Apple Pay will soon finally be made available to users of Mastercard in the Republic of Croatia, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Estonia, Greece, Lithuania, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Malta, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia, as was initially announced on Wednesday.

“Europe is leading a contactless evolution – more than one thousand in every two transactions are made contactlessly. This payment method offers both speed and convenience, and showcases the enthusiasm of European consumers who want to embrace new technologies such as Apple Pay.

Equally important is the transaction security provided by Mastercard’s tokenisation technology, by securely linking a mobile payment device,” stated Sanja Žigić, the director of Mastercard in the Republic of Croatia.

With Apple Pay on iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad and Mac computers, users can quickly and easily pay in stores, within applications (apps), and of course on websites.
