Excerpt from “Apple Pay the Future of Paying”

Setting Up Apple Pay

Setting up Apple Pay is simple to do but first, you have to get to the setup wizard which there are two ways to do.

Option 1: Settings (iPhone, iPad)

  1. Open Settings
  2. Scroll down and tap on “Wallet and Apple Pay”
  3. Then tap “Add Credit or Debit Card” in blue text at the top

Option 2: Settings (macOS)

  1. Open System Preferences
  2. In the third group down click on “Wallet and Apple Pay”
  3. Then click on “Add Credit or Debit Card”

Option 3: Wallet App (iPhone)

  1. Open the Wallet app
  2. Then tap on the plus (+) in the top right corner

Now that you are at the setup wizard hold your card in front of your device, let it scan your card information (a picture of your card is not saved). Once completed you may have to type in some number that your device could not find such as card number, card name, expiration date, or security number. Now your card might be ready for use. Some financial institutions require another form of authentication such as calling to verify your identity. Once setup is completed your card is ready to use.
