More banks are adding support for Apple Pay to their financial services, with FNB in South Africa and ING Belgium joining the ever-growing roster of firms that use Apple's mobile payments platform.

Apple Pay works with a high number of bank accounts and card services around the world, but not all of them. In updates on Tuesday, more services are adding themselves to the list that do support Apple Pay, affecting customers in South Africa and Belgium.

In South Africa, FNB added support for Apple Pay on Tuesday, reports MyBroadband. FNB customers were able to add their cards to Apple Pay, after updating the FNB banking app.

Five cards under FNB are supported at first, including Premier Fusion, Private Fusion, Private Wealth Credit, Business Debit, and Aspire Debit.

FNB is the fifth bank in South Africa to work with Apple Pay, following after Absa, Discovery Bank, Nedbank, and Investec.

Over in Belgium, MacRumors reports ING Belgium now works with Apple Pay, enabling its 1.4 million customers to add their cards to the Apple Wallet.

The addition of Belgium arrives long after ING rolled out the same feature to customers in other countries, including Australia, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Romania, and Spain.
