Avoid the hassle of carrying cards
Available on any iPhone® models newer than the iPhone® 6, Apple Pay raises the bar for secure, convenient transactions. Just enter your cards into your phone’s Wallet app. Then shop in-store or online at thousands of merchant locations across the nation – with more joining every day.
With Apple Pay you can:
- Make purchases by holding your phone near a participating merchant’s contactless reader, with your finger on the Touch ID sensor
- Use your iPad Air® and iPad Mini™ 3 for online-only shopping within certain apps
- Apple Pay transactions are free – message or data rates may apply depending on your wireless plan
Why Apple Pay is more secure than a card
- Your name and card number remain anonymous to cashiers and bystanders, making online and mobile payments more secure than ever before
- Your phone carries only a unique, encrypted Device Account Number rather than your actual debit or credit card numbers
How to get started:
- Make sure you have the latest iOS version on your iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 7, or 7 Plus.
- Open your Wallet app, swipe down and tap the plus sign.
- Enter your card by snapping a photo with your device’s iSight® camera, or add the data manually (if you already have a card in iTunes, you’ll be prompted to add it to your Wallet).
- Look for the Apple Pay logo at participating merchants to begin using Apple Pay.
