EU: Vestager may investigate Apple Pay if there are formal complaints

 |  December 10, 2018

On Monday, December 10, EC Commissioner Margrethe Vestager said EU regulators looked into Apple’s mobile payment service and found it was not market dominant, but they could review it again if they receive formal complaints.

In an interview with Reuters, Vestager also signaled that Google and Amazon would remain very much on her radar until the end of her mandate late next year.

Google has been fined a total of €6.8 billion (US$7.7 billion) in the last 18 months for breaching EU rules.

Apple’s mobile payment service Apple Pay, launched in October 2014, is available in 10 EU countries including France, Italy, Spain, Sweden, and Denmark.
