“Apple Pay will be available to eligible American Express customers in Australia and Canada this year,” CEO Tim Cook said during a conference call.

Apple Pay, an NFC-powered option that turns iPhones into digital payment machines, is only one from several digital payment solutions available to consumers in Canada and around the world. Still, because of the breadth of Apple, it’s expected to be one of the more popular options. Cook says Apple Pay is seeing double-digit growth in transactions.
