As of Wednesday evening, Banco de Chile and Banco Edwards have officially gotten Apple Pay support, according to the website Chocale.
Since August, it had been hinted that Apple Pay could soon be coming to South America. BICE, a bank in Chile, had previously said that it was preparing itself to get it there.
Now, customers with Banco de Chile or Banco Edwards can get access to Apple Pay on their iPhone and other Apple devices. It will work for customers that have Visa credit cards.

Both financial institutes have not made any sort of press release or statement on them accepting Apple Pay for its users. Apple has also not updated its website to show support for the launch of Apple Pay over there.
After this launch, the next one could be in Central America, which started testing for Apple Pay last month, as we previously reported.
