Set­ting Up Ap­ple Pay

To add a card to your ac­count, open the Wal­let app and tap the plus icon next to the Ap­ple Pay sym­bol or open Wal­let & Ap­ple Pay in Set­tings and tap Add Credit or Debit Card. If you al­ready have a card as­so­ci­ated with your Ap­ple ID, en­ter the card's se­cu­rity code. For other cards, use your iPhone's cam­era to scan the card or se­lect En­ter Card De­tails Man­u­ally. You will have to go through a ver­i­fi­ca­tion process de­ter­mined by your bank or card holder. Once com­plete, you'll be able to use Ap­ple Pay to make pay­ments at par­tic­i­pat­ing lo­ca­tions sim­ply by hold­ing your iPhone next to the reader while plac­ing your fin­ger on the Touch ID sen­sor. See if a Lo­ca­tion in Maps Ac­cepts Ap­ple Pay

It may have taken some time, but Ap­ple Pay is now ac­cepted in more than a mil­lion stores world­wide. If you'd like to find out whether Ap­ple Pay is avail­able at a lo­ca­tion you plan to visit, you can check in Maps first, so you can ar­rive pre­pared.

To get started, open Maps and search for your lo­ca­tion. Tap on the name of the busi­ness. A page will pop up pro­vid­ing ba­sic busi­ness in­for­ma­tion such as the store's num­ber, web ad­dress, and hours of op­er­a­tion. Look next to Cat­e­gory and Price. If you see the Ap­ple Pay logo, you can leave your wal­let at home.

You don't have to open the Wal­let app or wait un­til you're near a con­tact­less reader to ac­tive Ap­ple Pay—all you have to do is dou­ble tap the Home but­ton and you'll be ready to pay once you move to the front of the line. First, you'll need to en­able this fea­ture by go­ing to Set­tings and se­lect­ing Wal­let & Ap­ple Pay. Scroll down to the head­ing Al­low Ac­cess When Locked and turn on Dou­ble-Click Home But­ton. Once you've added cards to your Wal­let and en­abled this fea­ture, just dou­ble-click the Home but­ton and you'll be ready to make pur­chases. Use Ap­ple Pay on Your Ap­ple Watch

If you're a lucky owner of an Ap­ple Watch, you can make mo­bile pay­ments right from your wear­able. Ap­ple Pay is one of the watch's stand-alone fea­tures, mean­ing it works even if you're not con­nected to your iPhone via Blue­tooth. Be­fore you get started, you'll need to set up Ap­ple Pay on your watch, re­gard­less of whether or not you al­ready use Ap­ple Pay on your other iOS de­vices.

To do this, open the Watch app on your iDe­vice. Un­der the My Watch menu, tap Wal­let & Ap­ple Pay, and fol­low the on-screen in­struc­tions. Once you've ver­i­fied your card with the bank, you'll re­ceive a no­ti­fi­ca­tion on your watch in­form­ing you that Ap­ple Pay is ready to use.
