UK's digital-only Starling Bank offers Apple Pay to its customers

Starling Bank is a "fintech business with a banking licence" in the UK, that operates as a mobile-only bank with no brick-and-mortar facilities. Today, Starling Bank announced that it's not only providing its customers with Apple Pay, but that it will provide "in-app provisioning" so that customers can begin to use their contactless payments even before receiving a physical MasterCard Debit Card.

The bank will also allow customers to spend more than the £30 transaction limit made on other UK Apple Pay accounts, and those customers benefit from the security and privacy built into Apple Pay.
