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.
September saw Apple bring Apple Pay on the Web to the Mac, which allows users to pay for purchases or services in Safari on their Mac, by using their Apple Watch or compatible iPhone to authenticate the payment.
Last week, Apple Pay opened big in Japan, making it possible for Japanese commuters to pay for their fares and other purchases using their FeliCa-equipped iPhones and Apple Watches. The launch was marred a bit by system complication in the opening hours.
