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.
