We have been praying, but finally the bank ING Spain will be compatible with Apple Pay . ING was one of the few “big banks” in Spain that at the moment did not have integration with Apple’s service. As you have just announced, this integration will be coming soon.
Apple Pay users can pay easily and more securely with their iPhone, iPad, Mac or Apple Watch . All users who are from a bank that supports Apple’s payment service can add the bank card to their Apple account to activate the service. In this way, you can pay directly with Apple devices by authenticating the purchase with Face ID, Touch ID or directly with your wrist on the Apple Watch.
ING is already listed on the official Apple Pay website as a bank available soon.
Banks that announce their arrival “soon” on Apple Pay usually do so within several weeks . Therefore, it is most likely that in the next few weeks ING Spain customers will be able to start activating their credit cards in Apple’s Wallet app.
With ING within Apple’s payment system , an integration process of Apple Pay in Spain is “completed”, which was started by Banco Santander in 2016. Since then, most of the big banks have joined Apple Pay, along with several smaller ones and some businesses with special cards.

In the image above we can see the main banks with economic activity in Spain according to the total number of assets and their situation with Apple Pay. Of the 12 main ones, a total of 8 already have or will soon have Apple Pay.

We at Apple will be looking forward to announcing when the ING cards will start to be activated on Apple Pay. Along with ING, there is also Banco Mediolanum, which has not yet activated its cards despite the fact that it has been some time since it was announced.
