Notable milestones along the way include CaixaBank in 2017 and bunq in 2018. The list now is reasonably long, but ING España hasn’t yet joined. The bank has now tweeted that it is coming soon.

Coming soon is in 2 years?

Welcome to 2014.

They’ve been saying ‘soon’ since Apple Pay launched.

One simply tweeted this GIF in response.
