Apple Pay mobile payment system stopped working in Russia

Apple Pay stopped working in Russia on March 10, as soon as the clock struck midnight. Now applications offer to choose a different payment method – in cash or using a linked card.

Payment by Russian cards has also ceased to be carried out in the App Store since Thursday. To pay for subscriptions, you will need to choose another method – using your Apple ID account or using your mobile phone number. World maps cannot be linked to the App Store.

On March 6, the Central Bank announced that Apple Pay and Google Pay services will not be available for Visa and Mastercard.
