The top Dutch bank activated the payment service by Apple on Tuesday, June 11th. The Netherlands was one of the last European countries to offer Apple Pay. With the announcement, ING customers can now pay in-store using the payment service.
Apple Pay is free for ING customers to use; however, users have a daily limit of EUR 2,500 per day for adults and EUR 250 for children. The service can be used at any location where the contactless payment and/or Apple Pay symbols are posted. The widespread use of contactless payment terminals in the Netherlands means the payment method should be readily accessible.
Recently, Apple Pay also went live in Hungary and Luxembourg.
Challenger bank Revolut also announced this week that customers in 16 European countries could use Apple Pay.
It is not yet known whether other Dutch banks will roll out the service.
