  2. Card not compatible: Although Apple Pay is supported by most banks and credit institutions, there are still issuers that are not compatible with Apple's payment service. In case of problems, you should confirm this with the bank of your issued card.
  3. Geographic restrictions: Apple Pay is not supported in every country. In this list you will find all countries where Apple Pay usage is possible.
