Bunq tells us that Mastercard and Maestro cards are supported.
‘Austrian users can now enable both Maestro and Mastercard cards for Apple Pay, so they get the best of both worlds. This gives them the freedom to pay with their iPhone or Apple Watch, whenever they want, wherever they go,’ says founder and CEO Ali Niknam.
