Adding Your Credit or Debit Card to Apple Pay

If your bank or credit union is on today’s list, and you want to add your credit or debit card to Apple Pay, just do the following:

  • iPhone users running iOS 9 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.

Earlier this month, Apple announced they will bring Apple Pay payments to the web, allowing internet shoppers to use Apple Pay to make payments for goods and services on the web. The new feature will put Apple’s service into direct competition with internet payments behemoth PayPal.
