It’s been almost a year since Apple introduced its mobile payments service, Apple Pay into the market. Now, the company is one step closer to launching the service in China after they secretly set up new company in Shanghai's free-trade zone back in June to manage the service, reports the Wall Street Journal.

There’s no surprise that Apple is making China a priority for Apple Pay as it has become one of their most important markets for the past few years. With the existence of Apple Technology Service (Shanghai) Ltd, there's a high percentage of Apple unveiling Apple Pay in Asia. The company will not just monitor the service, but will also provide technical consulting, services and system integration in the field of mobile payments.

So far, there’s no official work on when Apple is going to launch Apple Pay in China, but it appears to be closer than ever now. If everything goes well, people in China will likely be paying for their groceries with iPhones very soon.
