One of the most outstanding mobile payment programs around the world is Apple Pay.

Part 1: What Is Apple Pay?

Apple Pay uses the near-field communication (NFC) chips embedded in your iPhone and Apple Watch to pay for goods and services by holding the device near a card reader, as you would a contactless debit card. You can also use Apple Pay to make single touch purchases within apps.

Part 2: How Does It Work?

Apple Pay does away with the need to enter a PIN to verify your identity when making a purchase by using its Touch ID sensor, inbuilt into the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus home button. Approaching a card reader automatically wakes up Apple Pay - without having to open an app - and pressing a finger to the sensor verifies the payment. Your phone will vibrate and beep to let you know it's been received.

Part 3: How to Use Apple Pay on iPhone?

Before use Apple Pay online on your iPhone 7/7 Plus/SE/6s/6s Plus/6/6 Plus/5s/5, you need to set it up first, here's how:

To pay with Apple Pay on your iPhone, simply hold your iPhone to the card reader with your registered finger or thumb resting on the home button and Passbook will automatically launch as it approaches. Your phone will then vibrate and make a pinging noise to let you know the payment has been received, and a tick with the legend Done will appear on screen.
