Some customers take to Twitter to find out the problem:
@HSBC_UK Trying to add my debit card to Apple Pay and keep getting a message saying “Verification Not Available”. Any idea why?

@firstdirecthelp Any chance of that email verification for Apple Pay that I requested 2hrs ago? Tried deleting/re-adding and checked junk.

HSBC is currently telling customers to remove their cards and re-enter their card as a workaround. Or just ‘try again later’ if the verification server is not responding.
HSBC had already postponed the release of Apple Pay by 2 weeks, and we could only assume they did so for testing purposes and to solve problems like this from happening, yet here we are. Anyway, all you guys can do is wait until this problem gets fixed (possibly in a couple of days?) or try the ‘workaround’.
