Apple’s very own wireless payment service is now up and running in Italy. The service, which allows folks on the iOS ecosystem to make payments from their Apple devices, is now available in the land which gave us some of the the best pizzas in the world. The Cupertino giant has announced that it is partnering up with a slew of banks and other retailers to bring Apple Pay to the country.

So if you are in Italy, you can hit up the app, add your payment cards to it on either your iPhone or the Apple Watch and get paying. Apple has started out with support offered for the likes of Boon, Carrefour Banca and UniCredit.

Expect others to join the bandwagon soon as well and N26, American Express, CartaBCC, ExpendiaSmart, Fineco, Hype, Mediolanum and Widiba, are those who could start offering support for Apple Pay in a few months.

This is traditionally how Apple introduces Pay in new countries. The company starts off with a few banks and retailers and then moves to bring others under its wing. Countries like Japan and Mainland China for example, offer extensive support for Apple Pay.
