Apple Pay has already been available in the US for around a year now and here in the UK we have had it since July of this year and it has great support from major banks and credit card companies and now, according to The Wall Street Journal, Apple is looking at bringing the service to China next by February next year.

However the current market situation in China may lead to some difficulties as well as the competition, as locally used chat service WeChat already has a payment service which is reasonably well established. UnionPay is also one of the main suppliers for bank cards in China but iPhones are significantly growing in popularity.
