Apple Pay may be set to arrive in two new markets, as Apple has updated the local support document pages for both Germany and Italy.

The pages now include translations of the “About Apple Pay” document which can be found in other markets where Apple Pay is already active. The pages were both updated last week.

Neither page includes details of specific banks, and at present feature graphics showing generic credit cards instead of branded ones.

Apple Pay is still gathering momentum, although consumer spending analytics company TXN recently described it as a “success story” with “lots of room for future growth.” The number of Apple Pay transactions grew significantly last year, while the service got a big boost when it was brought to macOS with last year’s Sierra update.

At present, Apple Pay can be used in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, China, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, France, Hong Kong, Russia, New Zealand, Japan. Other countries (as well as Germany and Italy) that are set to receive the service in the immediate future include Taiwan, Poland and South Korea.
