The list is either woefully outdated or inaccurate, or both. E.g. in Czech Republic you have listed only fraction from a total of 12 banks that support Google pay here: https://support.google.com/pay/answer/7572320
Same for another country I checked.

(I also believe I saw a EU ruling recently, demanding that Apple also opens up their NFC for others to use. Their way of monopolizing their hardware with restrictions is also the main reason many banks in my country did not make agreement with apple pay.

Essentially saying, if you want apple pay to work with our customers, then our service must be allowed access to your NFC chip for those wanting to use us directly. Which I understand very well.)

I miss google pay in Austria ... In Slovakia I use it every time ...

"Estonia? Never heard of that" - Google.

By the time this shitty service comes to Bulgaria, it will probably be surpassed by something else anyway. How hard is it to enable a couple of banks in each country, so people can at least use it?
ApplePay has been here for an year.

no romanian banks huh
