Revolut adds Apple Pay in Ireland

This is good news for those of you using the game-changing banking app on iOS, as the digital-only bank and the Cupertino giant finally cross paths.

Revolut is one of the most disruptive things to happen banking in the last couple of years, along with its main competition N26. These digital-first banks, as many tech companies do, focus on disrupting their industries and they have done just that.

That disruption, of course, comes much to the chagrin of the traditional banks we're used to. However it has spelled great news for consumers who benefit from better services, and it couldn't come at a better time as traditional banks here continue to increase their current account fees and decrease interest rates on their savings accounts. 

Something that was unusual though from such a tech-forward bank like Revolut was the conspicuous absence of a certain feature: Apple Pay.

However, Irish Revolut users need wait no longer as support for Revolut’s cards on Apple Pay is finally here.

Mobile payments like Apple Pay, Google Pay and Fitbit Pay have increased hugely in popularity over the past few years so this will no doubt be great news to the tens of thousands of Irish customers who have already signed up to the Revolut app.  

To get set up for Apple Pay on your iOS device just follow the traditional route to installing a payment card by opening the Wallet app and following the simple instructions. 

Switch it up

If you're thinking about switching up your banking situation we highly recommend you do that and here is the reason why; competition.

Currently, the rate at which people switch current accounts in the Republic is less than 1%, and if there is a 99% chance that a bank will retain your custom, regardless of what fees are implemented or how many features they refuse to introduce, then they are less inclined to produce better products.  

If you want to see who has the best banking packages you can find all of that information right here on bonkers.ie. So make sure to use our comparison tools and check out our blog to keep up with all of the news from the world of personal finance and consumer affairs.

And if you want to see how Revolut compares to the other main digital-only bank in Ireland, N26, you can find that information here.
