Apple Pay first debuted in October of last year with just a handful of major banks on board, such as Chase and Bank of America. Hundreds more institutions have since signed up.

To date, though, Apple Pay has been limited to U.S. shoppers. Apple is believed to be negotiating expansions to China, Canada, and the United Kingdom. A Canadian launch, at least, could happen as soon as November.
