Apple's digital payment system, Apple Pay, is one of the easiest ways to pay in person or online. Apple Pay digitises a users credit card at contactless-capable point-of-sale terminals.


What is Apple pay?

Apple Pay is Apple's digital payment system, similar to competitors Google Pay and Samsung Pay which allows users to make payments in person, in iOS apps and online through the Safari web browser. Apple Pay can be set up through the Apple Wallet app on your Apple device.

It allows the user to upload their credit or debit cards, loyalty and rewards cards or gift cards to a central digital wallet, in this case the Apple Wallet app. This allows the user the freedom not to take their physical cards or wallet with them. You can even upload your boarding pass or theatre tickets. Apple Pay works with any merchant's contactless point of sale system, though it is safer than using such a system with a standard physical card, as Apple Pay includes additional levels of security. Free to use, Apple Pay makes paying in person and online easier than ever before. Apple Pay compatible credit cards are accepted throughout the world.

Is Apple Pay safe to use?

Apple Pay is one of the most secure mobile payment platforms available. Payment card details such as your pin and CVC/CVV number are not stored on the device, and every payment requires a scan of your iris, fingerprint or PIN for authentication before the payment process proceeds. It is worth mentioning that as well as internal app security, any financial transactions should be protected by your bank's fraud policy.

When your card is added to the Apple Wallet on your device, a unique Device Account Number (DAN) replaces the information on your card. It will not work if compromised in any way, and cannot be used outside the device to which it is assigned. Should you need to find the Device Account Number, it can be found in the Wallet app.

The Device Account number works in conjunction with a unique transaction code that allows you to make secure purchases in-store and online. When you pay with an eligible debit or credit card, Apple Pay doesn't keep transaction information that can be tied to the user nor does it share personal details with the merchant. Depending on the device you are using, every Apple Pay transaction has to be authorised by either your fingerprint, face ID or passcode, so even if you lose your device, nobody will be able to use it to pay for anything without the passcode to the phone or device itself.

Apple Pay features

The main features of Apple Pay are Credit and Debit card transactions, in-store payments, gift and membership card transactions, visa checkout, online payments, fingerprint authentication and iris scan authorisation.
