Revolut Junior users aged between 6 and 17 will now be able to make payments using Apple Pay.

This means that young Revolut users can make contactless payments using their iPhone or Apple Watch, without the need for their card.

The digital bank said it launched the feature across Europe and the UK following feedback from customers over the last few months - specifically parents and their teenage children.

To use Apple Pay, customers hold their iPhone or Apple Watch near a payment terminal to make a contactless payment.

The purchase is then authenticated on their device with Face ID, Touch ID, or passcode.

"Our research shows that the younger generation has a strong preference for digital wallets," said Tara Massoudi, Head of Product at Revolut.

"We're moving towards a cashless society, and the pandemic has accelerated digital payment trends even more.

"We've come a long way since piggy banks with cash and kids need new tools to evolve with this shift," she added.

Following the introduction of the Apple Pay feature on the Junior accounts across Europe and the UK, Revolut said the feature will soon be made available for young users across the US, Singapore and Australia.
