Connecting PostePay or PostePay Evolution to your Apple Pay account is one of the greatest tragedies of recent times. I found a solution that suits you and at no cost.
How to Use Postepay with Apple Pay
Can’t wait to discover it? I’ll explain immediately what it is and how it all works.
Is it possible to use PostePay to pay with ApplePay?
Officially, any PostePay account is not yet compatible with ApplePay. Trying to enter your PostePay in the iPhone Wallet you will encounter a configuration error.
To bypass this problem we will rely on a free service that will act as an intermediary to let our PostePay communicate with the Apple Pay configuration on iPhone and Apple Watch.
What Curve is and how it works
Curve is a physical and virtual card container. It is not in any way an account or a simple prepaid, but it is a platform that offers the possibility of enclosing in a single card, virtual or otherwise, the various credit, debit and prepaid cards in your possession (Mastercard or Visa circuit).
The Curve card is perfect for any type of payment and you will need to remember a single PIN to use any previously linked card. Furthermore, directly from the Curve app it will be possible to check the balance, the movement list and perform operations from all the cards connected to the system.
What are the costs of Curve
It is possible to select 3 different Curve planes: Blue, Black and Metal. The Blue plan is completely free and also includes the physical Blue card which will be shipped immediately after registration. However, there are some limitations that I leave you below:
How to pay with Apple Pay using PostePay
Through Curve, you can use your PostePay account to pay with Apple Pay, supported on iPhone and Apple Watch.
You will not move any euro from PostePay to Curve (also because as I have already explained to you it is not an account!), You will have to perform some steps that will allow you to use your PostePay as the main card for Apple Pay.
After finishing the configuration that I show you below, to pay with Apple Pay just double click the Home button or the side button in the most recent iPhones.
At this point, unlock the payment with Face ID or Touch ID and bring the iPhone close to the contactless reader until you see the word Finish and a check mark on the display.
