From today, American Express cardholders in Australia can pay for items with their iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch.

Shoppers with an American Express issued card can use Apple Pay at participating stores where contactless American Express payments are currently accepted.

American Express VP Consumer Marketing ANZ, Dean Chadwick, says Apple Pay will offer convenience for personal, small business and corporate card members.

Online payments provider eWay, already accepts contactless American Express payments and will allow e-commerce merchants to use Apple Pay.

Kogan.com, Brands Exclusive and The Home are among a host of online brands that will accept Apple Pay within their brand apps. Currently, eWay services 21,000 online stores and processes a quarter of all online spend in Australia. The inclusion of Apple Pay will allow retailers to offer one-touch mobile payments, within apps or in-person using eWay’s SmartPOS mobile payments device.
