How to Use Apple Pay

Why Use Apple Pay?

I’ll start off by saying using Apple Pay, in my opinion, is an awesome feature on iPhones, Macs, and Apple Watch. I use Apple Pay regularly. It’s convenient and more secure.  Once you add your cards, you’ll find them in your “Wallet” app.

Many people don’t like to add credit cards to their devices, but in my opinion, this one is the best options to avoid having your credit card number stolen.  I’m only writing this post to make you aware of options available to use on your device.

Apple Pay can be used in many ways. I use it not only to pay with a credit card at the register, but also to scan for Kroger Rewards card. I also use it with a Starbucks card to pay and collect their rewards.

Safer Using Apple Pay

With all the holiday shopping upon us, what makes Apple Pay safer, is that you are NOT putting your credit card number out there each time you make a purchase.

When you use Apple Pay, it gives the merchant a random number that is specific to your device. So your credit card number isn’t seen by anyone and not even part of the transaction at the register. It reduces the chance of your credit card number being exposed on the internet.

How to Set Up Apple Pay

I think the video from Apple explains it best. If you view it and have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. Use this link Setting Up Apple Pay to see how to set up your phone. Note: When you set up Apple pay your bank may have other verifications it may require. If you experience a delay in the set up, your bank is finalizing their process.

There is also information on how to set it up on your Apple Watch if you’d like to use it with Apple Pay.   It’s pretty funny when I pay with my watch. People are shocked and amazed at how it all works.

Thanks for stopping by today!
