Setting up Apple Pay on your device
Before you can start using Apple Pay, you need to set it up correctly on your device. To do this, follow the instructions:
- Open the Wallet & Apple Pay app on your iPhone;
- Tap Add Card to add a credit or debit card;
- Use the camera to scan the card data or enter it manually;
- The bank issuing the card will verify your information and once approved, it will be ready to use.
How Apple Pay works in physical stores
Apple Pay uses NFC (Near Field Communication) technology to enable contactless payments. When making a purchase in a compatible physical store, simply bring the device closer to the payment terminal and authenticate the transaction with facial identification (Face ID) or fingerprint (Touch ID).
The device emits a secure signal to complete the transaction, keeping your card details protected.
How Apple Pay works on websites and apps
The way Apple Pay works on websites and apps is based on encryption and biometric authentication technology.
This entire encryption, authentication and authorization process occurs quickly and transparently for the user, providing an agile and secure purchasing experience in applications and websites compatible with Apple Pay.
Additionally, since actual card details are not shared with sellers, this helps reduce fraud risks and makes Apple Pay a reliable option for digital payments.
