Two weeks after Apple Pay launched in the U.K., HSBC, one of the biggest banks serving Great Britain, has confirmed that it will be lending its support. HSBC customers will be able to add their cards to the Passbook app on their iPhones from Tuesday, July 28.

HSBC was supposed to be one of Apple Pay’s launch partners, but when the service went live on July 14, customers quickly found they were unable to use their credit and debit cards with the service. HSBC then announced that support would be coming “later in July.”

Now iMore reports that HSBC will rollout Apple Pay support in the U.K. tomorrow.

Apple Pay is already being supported by seven banks in the U.K., including American Express, MBNA, Nationwide, NatWest, Royal Bank of Scotland, Santander, and Ulster Bank. In addition to HSBC, those that will support the service “soon” include Bank of Scotland, First Direct, Halifax, Lloyds Bank, M&S Bank, and TSB.
