Six months after announcing that it would be working with American Express to bring Apple Pay to Singapore, the mobile payment service is now officially available!

At the moment, Apple Pay will only work with American Express issued cards, but it will soon support major credit and debit cards from major banks such as DBS, UOB and Standard Chartered. You can spend up to S$100 per Apple Pay transaction.

Apple says that the mobile payment service is accepted in grocery stores, boutiques, restaurants and hotels. Some of the featured stores include FairPrice, Uniqlo, Topman and G2000. Other retail locations such as BreadTalk, Cold Storage, iStudio and ToastBox will have support for Apple Pay soon.

Apple's VP of Apple Pay, Jennifer Bailey had this to say about Apple Pay's availability in Singapore:

"Starting today, Apple Pay is available for eligible American Express issued credit cards in Singapore, so customers can now pay in an easy, secure and more private way. We’re also thrilled to share that credit and debit cards from Singapore’s most popular banks, including DBS, UOB and Standard Chartered will work with Apple Pay in the coming months — so even more people can experience the best way to pay from their iPhone, Apple Watch or iPad."
