If you compared with swiping your card or by using cash, contactless payments, like Apple Pay, are one faster and safer method to pay.
In such locations, anyone can use the phone to pay for groceries, coffee, and sometimes even public transportation services.
Instead of swiping a card, anyone may verify a payment using a mobile that needs your fingerprint, facial ID, or a PIN.
Apple Pay provides your key to an easy and secure method of paying whether you have an iPhone.
Confirm to see if the device is available on Apple Pay before registering your credit card.
Contactless Payments is only used for Apple devices, such as iPhones, Apple Watches, and Macs that are compatible. Certain previous iPhone devices, including the iPhone 5s, aren’t supported.
