Apple Pay has added more than 20 banks and credit unions in the United States, as well as two new banks in Russia, that now support the payment service, according to 9to5Mac.

This announcement follows the launch of Apple Pay in Taiwan and Ireland, as well as the addition of more than 30 banks and credit unions across the U.S., Australia and China late last month. Apple Pay is now available in 15 countries, with recent data showing that 22 percent of the Internet Retailer top 100 supports the service at all possible points of adoption.

Some of the financial institutions in the U.S. in this recent addition include Heritage Bank, Community 1st Credit Union, Peoples Bank, Royal Bank, South Central Bank and Rhinebeck Bank, to name a few. The two banks in Russia are AK BARS Bank and Gazprombank (Mastercard credit and debit cards). The full list could be found on Apple’s site.

It’s rumored that Apple Pay will launch in Germany and Italy next, and Wells Fargo announced last week that it will roll out cardless Apple Pay ATM withdrawals later this year.
