Cashless made effortless with Apple Pay

June 25, 2018


pay main.webpPaying in stores, within apps and on the web has never been simpler, safer, or convenient. Apple Pay is simpler than using your physical card and is safer too. 

Apple Pay is easy to use by using the cards you already own on the devices you use daily, so you can use your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and Mac to pay easily and securely with just a touch.

Send and receive money quickly and securely
And now you can send and receive money from friends and family right in Messages.  There’s no app to download, and you can use the cards you already have in Wallet. Send money for books to your son in college. Split a bill. Pay a babysitter. Send and receive from across the table — or across the country.

When you receive money it’s added to your Apple Pay Cash card that lives in the Wallet app. You can start using the cash right away to make purchases using Apple Pay in stores, in apps, and on the web. You can also transfer your Apple Pay Cash balance to your bank account.

An easier way to pay in stores 

  • Pay with devices you use everyday —there’s no need to open an app or wake up iPhone or Apple Watch. 

A more secure way to pay online 

  • On iPhone and iPad, pay within apps or on the web in Safari without entering billing, shipping, or contact information—tap the Apple Pay button, then confirm with Face ID or Touch ID to pay.  
  • Pay on the web using Safari with Mac—just click the Apple Pay button, then use Touch ID on MacBook Pro with Touch Bar or use an Apple Pay-enabled iPhone or Apple Watch to complete the transaction. 

Setup is simple with Wallet 

  • On your iPhone, just open Wallet.  
  • On your iPad, go to Settings, then Wallet & Apple Pay.  
  • On Apple Watch, open the Apple Watch app on iPhone, then go to Wallet & Apple Pay.  
  • On MacBook Pro with Touch ID, go to System Preferences, then Wallet & Apple Pay.  
  • Add the credit or debit card from your iTunes account by simply entering the card security code—or add a different card using the iPhone or iPad camera.  
  • Apple Pay works with cards from supported banks and card issuers. 

A safer way to pay 

  • Instead of using your actual card number, Apple Pay assigns a unique number for each purchase—so your card information is never shared by Apple with merchants.  
  • If your device is lost or stolen, you can use Find My iPhone to quickly put it in Lost Mode to suspend Apple Pay, or you can wipe the device.  
  • You can also remove your cards remotely on 

Keep your purchases private 

  • When you use Apple Pay, it doesn’t keep transaction information that can be tied back to you.  
  • The cashier never sees the card, so the name, card number, and security code aren’t disclosed when making purchases. 

Use in stores where you already shop 

  • Use iPhone and Apple Watch to pay in many of the locations you already know and love.  
  • Look for one of these symbols at checkout or in the Maps app:

Accepted in apps and on the web 

  • Use Apple Pay to make purchases in all kinds of apps—pay for a ride, a pizza delivery, or a new pair of shoes with just a glance or a touch. 
  • Pay in Safari on supporting websites with your iPhone, iPad, or Mac without needing to create an account or typing in billing and shipping information.  
  • Find more apps by searching for 
“Apple Pay” in the App Store. 

Using Apple Pay in stores 

  • With iPhone X, double-click the side button, and then use Face ID to authenticate. Hold the top of iPhone X near the payment reader until the screen displays “Done” with a checkmark, along with a subtle vibration and beep.  
  • With earlier iPhone models, place the device near the contactless reader. Hold your finger on Touch ID until the screen displays “Done” with a checkmark, along with a subtle vibration and beep.  
  • With Apple Watch, double-click the side button and hold the display up to the reader until you feel a gentle tap and hear a beep. 

Using Apple Pay within apps and on the web 

  • To pay within an app or website on iPhone, iPad, or MacBook Pro with Touch ID, tap the “Buy with Apple Pay” button or choose Apple Pay as the payment method, then place your finger on Touch ID.  
  • To use Apple Pay in Safari on other Mac devices, click the Apple Pay button, and then complete the transaction using an Apple Pay-enabled iPhone or Apple Watch. 

Compatible devices 

  • For contactless payments in stores: iPhone, Apple Watch.  
  • For one-touch payments in apps: iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch.  
  • For one-touch payments on the web: iPhone, iPad, Mac. 

System requirements 
Compatible device running the latest version of iOS, watchOS, and macOS; Face ID, Touch ID, or passcode; iCloud account; and a supported credit or debit cardKey messages
