Apple Pay just too popular in China

Now that Apple Pay has launched in China, the mobile payment service apparently has the problem of being too popular. iPhone users trying to sign up for the service ran into problems the first day it was available, according to a Caixin report.

Local Apple spokesman Cong Jie told the publication that too many folks were trying to sign up at once. Apple promises a quick resolution to the issue.

Apple Pay entered the country through a partnership with UnionPay.  Fifteen major banks, including the nation's biggest lender, Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, have agreed to let customers link their bankcards to Apple Pay.
