Get ready, Vietnam! Apple Pay has landed, transforming the way you pay for goods and services with your Apple devices. Yes, you heard it right! This revolutionary payment system is now available in retail stores, online platforms, and apps across the country.
From Adidas and Decathlon to Hasaki, McDonald’s, and Starbucks, Apple Pay is accepted everywhere! And it’s not just retail giants; Apple Pay is integrated with six of the major banks in Vietnam: ACB, MB, Sacombank, Techcombank, Vietcombank, and VPBank.

Apple’s presence in Vietnam is growing fast, and with the opening of its online store in May, it’s clear that emerging markets are becoming a major focus for the tech giant. And it doesn’t stop here. Apple has also opened its first flagship store in India, registering record iPhone sales there and even looking into a potential push into Malaysia.
Despite facing three consecutive quarters of declining sales, Apple has pulled off an impressive 8% increase in revenue in China, signaling the brand’s resilience and innovation. The future is bright for Apple in Asia, and the roll-out of Apple Pay in Vietnam is just the beginning!
