Apple Pay will arrive a little later than expected at BforBank and AXA Bank. They are among the last French banks not yet to offer support for the Apple payment system.
BforBank originally announced that it will support Apple Pay for the month of January, but there is still nothing to date. And if we base ourselves on a tweet from Monday, we will have to wait a little longer:
Hello @kervillen. We apologize for the delay in processing your message. Regarding Apple Pay, we are currently facing a development delay regarding our mobile payment offer.

As for AXA Bank, support for Apple Pay was in the works in January 2020. There is nothing a year later. And yet, there is still no information on the availability date:
To date, we cannot confirm the date of availability.

Customers at BforBank or AXA Bank who want Apple Pay will therefore have to wait. Meanwhile, new banks have been running Apple’s payment system since this week. There are Qonto, Sodexo, Banque Palatine and Banque Wormser Frères.
