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 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.
In June, Apple announced they will bring their payments solution to the web, allowing internet shoppers to use the service to make payments for goods and services on the web. Mac Safari users will soon be allowed to use the solution in the browser, confirming purchases via Touch ID on their iPhone, or by double-clicking the side button on their Apple Watch. The new feature will put Apple’s service into direct competition with internet payments behemoth PayPal.
