Did you know this about Apple Pay?

What did we do before Apple Pay? Since launching, it's made our lives so much easier to pay using your iPhone and Apple Watch.

Now we all know that Apple Pay allows you to make quick payments using your iPhone, but did you know that there’s no £30 limit when you use in-store? We’ll repeat that - Apple Pay has no £30 spend limit. Just look for the contactless symbol on the terminal. 

What is Apple Pay?

Put simply, Apple Pay is the easy, safe way to pay in shops, in apps and online with your iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad and Mac. You can quickly check out using the devices you use every day. 

What are the benefits of Apple Pay?

It's quick

Fiddling around with your wallet or purse at the checkout to find the right card or correct change can be a thing of the past. Simply use Apple Pay - if you're anything like us, you'll always have your iPhone or Apple Watch to hand! Again, no need to worry about getting to the checkout with arms full of stuff that comes to more than £30; pay with Apple Pay wherever you see the contactless symbol, whether it's your favourite shop or restaurant, you can confidently use Apple Pay.

What's more, we all love the speed and ease of shopping online or in apps. What we don’t love is filling in forms and creating payment accounts time and time again; Apple Pay allows to you skip this repetition and pay fast and securely. 

It’s secure

Enjoy all the benefits of your bank card with Apple Pay on iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad and Mac. Using Apple Pay is simple, and it works with the devices you use every day. Your card information is secure because it isn't stored on your device or Apple servers, and when you pay, your card numbers are never shared with merchants. Paying in shops, apps and online has never been easier, safer or more private. 

It's easy to set up

Adding your card to Apple Wallet is simple. Here's how to get started; on iPhone, open the Wallet app and tap the "+" sign or click on the 'Add to Apple Wallet' button. 

Apple Pay works with most major credit cards and debit cards including American Express, Visa and MasterCard.

Your favourite retailers accept Apple Pay

Happily, Apple Pay is available to use across a huge variety of retailers and restaurants, including John Lewis, Marks & Spencer, Boots, Pizza Express and Wagamama. And remember, wherever you see the contactless symbol, you can use Apple Pay. 

Apple Pay works on apps, too

We can't imagine life without the ease of apps; from late night food orders to paying our bills, apps make everything easier, and a huge number accept Apple Pay too. Think ASOS, Trainline, JD Sports, Deliveroo, easy jet, Starbucks, Domino's, Sainsbury's and many more. 

The technical bit...

Apple Pay is easy to set up and users will continue to receive all of the rewards and benefits offered by credit and debit cards. In stores, Apple Pay works with iPhone SE, iPhone 6 and later, and Apple Watch.

Shopping with Apple Pay is simple with Touch ID, or just double-click the side button and glance at your iPhone X to authenticate with Face ID. There's no need to manually fill out lengthy account forms or repeatedly type in shipping and billing information with Apple Pay. When paying for goods and services on the go in apps or Safari, Apple Pay works with iPhone 6 and later, iPhone SE, iPad Pro, iPad (5th Generation), iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3 and later. You can also use Apple Pay in Safari on any Mac introduced in or after 2012 running macOS Sierra and confirm the payment with iPhone 6 or later or Apple Watch, or with Touch ID on the new MacBook Pro.
