If you have an iPhone 6 or later, you can use Apple Pay to make payments in stores and online. To use Apple Pay, you need to set up a credit card in your Apple account that can be used for purchases. You can also associate a debit card with your Apple Account. Once you set up your cards, anyone who has access to your phone can add it as a card by following a few simple steps. In this article, we will show you how to set up Apple Pay on iPhone and take advantage of the enhanced security features of the mobile payment service.
How To Set Up Apple Pay on iPhone
Set Up Apple Pay on iPhone
Apple Pay is available on both the iPhone 6 and later, as well as the iPhone SE and later. With Apple Pay, you can use your iPhone to make payments in stores. In order to set it up, you’ll need to get an NFC (Near Field Communication) antenna, which is easily added to the back of your iPhone. NFC uses radio waves to make contactless payments possible, so you won’t need to enter a special code or sign any kind of receipt. Once you have the antenna attached, open the Wallet app on your iPhone and select the “Add Credit or Debit Card” option. You’ll be prompted to sign into your Apple account and enter your credit card information. Note that you can also add a debit card to Apple Pay, but you’ll need to enter that card’s account information. When you’re done, your card will be added to the Wallet app, where you can use it to make purchases in stores or online.
Add a Credit or debit card to Apple Pay
If you have an NFC-enabled iPhone, you can set up Apple Pay on that device. To add a new card to your account, go to Wallet then tap the “+” sign next to the card you want to add. Enter the card’s information and then select “Add Card.” After adding a card, you can use it to make purchases in stores using the Wallet app. However, you can also link your card to a bank account, so you can use that account to make payments online. To link a card to your account, go to Wallet and select the account that the card is associated with.
Set up PIN code
When you use Apple Pay, your iPhone will automatically create a virtual code, which is a combination of numbers and letters. You’ll need to memorize this code in case someone tries to make a purchase with your phone. To create a PIN code for this virtual code, go to Wallet and select “Settings.” Scroll down to the “Payment” section, then select “Keychain Access.” Select “Create New Keychain” and then enter a name for the keychain. Now, select the “+” sign next to your virtual code and then select “Create.”
Use Face ID or Touch ID to secure your payment
Apple Pay makes use of either Face ID or Touch ID to authenticate your payment. These features use the front-facing camera and sensor of your iPhone to authenticate your payment. If you want to use Face ID, turn on this option in Wallet. If you want to use Touch ID, select “Use Passcode” instead of “Use Face ID.” If you use Face ID, you can unlock your phone to use Apple Pay. To authenticate a payment, open the Wallet app and tap the card you want to use. Then, look at the phone’s screen and hold it up to the payment terminal for a few seconds. The payment terminal will ask you to confirm the identity of the device. Select the option and the payment should complete.
Use your fingerprint when paying in-store
If you have a fingerprint-enabled iPhone, you can use your fingerprint to authenticate payment at the register. To enable this feature, go to Wallet, select the account that the card associated with is connected to, then select “Biometric Identification.” Make sure you have the finger sensor enabled for Touch ID or Face ID. Next, scan your finger at the register, then approve the purchase.
Set Up Another Card Through iTunes
If you want to add another card to Apple Pay, you can do so through iTunes. Once you’ve added a credit or debit card to your Apple account, you can add it to your phone’s Wallet app. You can also set up an authorized payment account from an outside source, such as a bank account, a store card, or a service like Venmo. Just follow the steps above to add an account to Wallet.
Use 2-Step Verification to protect your payment
If you’re using Apple Pay, you can also take advantage of 2-Step Verification, which requires you to enter your password along with an additional verification code. That way, anyone who tries to make a payment with your phone will need both your password and the verification code to complete the transaction. To set up 2-Step Verification on your iPhone, go to Wallet and select the account that the card is linked to. Under “Security,” select the “Enable Two-Step Verification” option. Now, when making a payment, the card terminal will display a prompt asking you to enter your password and verify your identity with an additional code.
Discover other security features of Apple Pay
Apple Pay offers several other security features that help protect your payment information. Once you’ve created an Apple Pay card, anyone who tries to add it to their iPhone will be prompted to enter a six-digit code that appears only once. You can also set up regular reminders on your phone to make sure you remember to update your password if you’ve enabled this feature. Apple Pay also supports geofencing so you can set up a payment limit, like a maximum amount you can spend in a certain geographic area. You can also see how many purchases you’ve made with Apple Pay on your iPhone.
