Apple Pay allows users to make payments - online, on mobile, and in physical stores - with just a few flicks of your finger.
When you hear the brand name Apple, you know that whatever the product is, it will be top quality. Apple Pay is a new service offered by the tech giant, and it allows users to make payments - online, on mobile, and in physical stores - with just a few flicks of your finger. The only catch? You need to have an Apple device in order to use it.
How it Works
There is no physical card for Apple Pay; you simply set up an account on your Apple device, input up to 8 credit and/or debit cards, and go. Apple Pay works with most major credit and debit cards from nearly all U.S. banks, so you can continue to get the rewards and perks of your regular cards even when using them through Apple Pay.
As you might expect, you can only use Apple Pay if you own an Apple device. This can be an iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, or Mac. Apple Pay cannot be used on PC or Android device.
Where Is Apple Pay Accepted?
Apple Pay can be used at grocery stores, boutiques, restaurants, hotels, non-profit organizations, websites, apps, and more - and new companies are constantly being added to the list. You can check out the website for a full list of participating brands.
While you can have up to 8 cards in your Apple Pay wallet, your card details are never actually shared when you use Apple Pay. Apple also uses strong encryption and implements strict policies to ensure the ultimate security of all user data.
