Apple Pay launched in Vietnam

An easier, safer and more secure way to pay with iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad and Mac is now available.
Today, Apple announced that customers in Vietnam can now use Apple Pay on iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad and Mac. The launch offers an easy, secure and private way for Apple customers to pay for everything in their daily lives, including transactions at multiple retailers, large and small, within the application and on the web. Whether customers buy coffee at Rang Rang Coffee, supermarket shopping at Annam Gourmet, or online purchases on Shopee, Apple Pay makes their lives faster and more convenient. Thousands more merchants will now accept Apple Pay thanks to the assistance of some of the most reputable banks in Vietnam and their huge credit and debit networks.
We're excited to introduce Apple Pay to the nation and provide customers with a new way to conduct business because contactless payments are gradually taking over our customers' daily lives in Vietnam.
Make payments easy, secure, and private on Apple devices," shared Jennifer Bailey, Apple VP of Apple Pay and Apple Wallet. "We believe Apple Pay will seamlessly fit into the daily routine of Vietnamese customers, whether tapping to pay at leading stores or shopping securely online with retailers on their favorite e-commerce platforms and apps."


Security and privacy are core values of Apple Pay. With the industry-leading security Apple Pay offers, customers get all the benefits of protecting their personal information, transaction data, and credit and debit card information. The card number is not stored on the device or Apple's servers when adding a credit or debit card. Instead, a unique Device Account Number will be assigned, encrypted, and securely stored in Secure Element on the customer's device, and each transaction will be authorized via a dynamic security code using one. Apple does not store customer-related transaction information. Transactions will only occur between the customer, the merchant or developer, and their bank or card issuer. If a customer's iPhone is lost or stolen, they can use Find My iPhone to quickly locate, lock, or pause payments from that device.
Using Apple Pay in stores is quick and easy. Double-tap the side or Home button, authenticate with Face ID or Touch ID, and hold the top of your iPhone or Apple Watch screen near the contactless card reader to make payments.
Customers can use Apple Pay without creating a merchant account, filling out lengthy forms, or re-entering shipping and billing information when shopping online. Every Apple Pay transaction is authenticated using the device's Face ID, Touch ID, password, and a one-time dynamic security code.
Customers with credit and debit cards from banks, including Asia Commercial Joint Stock Bank (ACB), Military Commercial Joint Stock Bank, Sacombank, Techcombank, Vietcombank and VPBank, can now use Apple Pay. 
Customers of some 3 banks can apply for a debit card online through the bank's app. The online card will be issued immediately and can be added to Apple Pay, allowing users to pay instantly with their Apple devices.
Selling points such as Adidas, Annam Gourmet, CellphoneS, Decathlon, Dien May Xanh, Emart, F.Studio by FPT, FPT Shop, Hasaki, Hoang Ha Mobile, Kokonic, LOTTE Mart, McDonald's, Long Chau Pharmacy, Rang Rang Coffee, ShopDunk, Starbucks, Taxi Mai Linh, Mobile World, The Pizza Company, TopZone, Viettel Store and Watsons; as well as apps and websites including BAEMIN, Be, Mytour and Shopee will offer customers the ability to pay with Apple Pay starting today.
In addition to supporting over 10,000 banking partners globally, Apple Pay is accessible in more than 70 countries and regions.
