Monzo adds long-awaited Apple Pay support

You can find everything you need to know about how it works and how to use it on our dedicated Apple Pay page. The Ukrainian Finance Minster announced the news on Facebook.

The announcement was made on Monzo's blog, with the bank apologising to its customers for the delay in rolling out Apple pay integration. Despite its innovative brand, it has taken a long time for the bank to support Apple's contactless mobile payments offering.

London based Monzo, previously Mondo, set the record for "quickest crowd-funding campaign in history" when it raised £1m in 96 seconds, and has reportedly helped users save over £1,000,000 within 2 months of launching its in-app Coin Jar saving system.


Of course, most people simply like Apple Pay for its convenience, letting you use your phone to pay rather than fumbling for a debit or credit card, and when shopping online not having to repeatedly enter card details. "Apple is famous for building lovely products with simple, intuitive interfaces". Noteworthy, Monzo was able to add Google Pay all the way back in October 2017.

You can either setup your iPhone with Apple Pay through the Wallet app (we have a handy guide on that here) or directly through the Monzo app.

Apple Pay is supported natively on MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, but older Macs also support Apple Pay web purchases by handing off the authorization of the transaction to a nearby iOS device.
