Per­son-to-per­son Ap­plePay

>>> Ap­ple’s con­tact­less pay­ment and iMes­sage sys­tems pair up in iOS 11, en­abling you to send money to friends, fam­ily, or col­leagues right from your con­ver­sa­tions with them.

Let’s say you’re talk­ing with a friend about book­ing cinema tickets. They use an app to pur­chase the tickets and send you an iMes­sage to let you know how much you owe them. You then tap the Ap­ple Pay icon in Mes­sages’ app drawer (or the Ap­ple Pay sug­ges­tion that ap­pears above the key­board), con­firm that the amount the app has picked out of the mes­sage is cor­rect, then place your fin­ger­print on your de­vice’s Touch ID sen­sor. Money re­ceived is held on an Ap­ple Pay card in the Wal­let app; you can ei­ther keep it there to fund fu­ture pay­ments us­ing Ap­ple Pay (in a re­tail store or on­line), send it on to an­other per­son, or trans­fer it to your bank.
