Adding Your Credit or Debit Card to Apple Pay

Users can add their credit or debit card to Apple Pay, by doing the following:

  • iPhone users running iOS 10 can go to the Wallet app and tap the “+” icon in the upper right-hand corner to begin, and then just follow the prompts. Users of iPads with Touch ID can add a card to the service to use in apps by going into “Settings” -> “Wallet & Apple Pay” to add a card there.
  • Apple Watch users will need to enter the Watch app on their iPhone, Tap on the “Wallet & Apple Pay” option, and then tap the “Add Credit or Debit Card” option.

A new “Person to Person” payment feature will allow users to send money to friends and family via iMessage.

Apple Pay Cash is a virtual debit card that accessible in the Wallet app, and will hold the money received via Person to Person electronic transfers. The money can be withdrawn to your bank account or used to make payment for goods and services at retailers that accept Apple Pay.
