Pay With Apple Pay
1. Make Sure You Have Apple Wallet Installed
To use Apple Pay, you need to have the Apple Wallet app installed on your iOS device. After iOS 10 came out, it became possible to remove preinstalled Apple apps, and the Apple Wallet is no exception. Many people unknowingly remove the wallet app from their device before they even use it.
We all know there are a lot of preinstalled apps that we never use, but this one is actually handy and can make payments easy.
If you removed the Wallet app, you can download and install it from the App Store. It is also important to note that with Apple Pay, you can only send money to other Apple users, and they will need to have the Wallet app installed as well.

2. Add Your Payment Method
In order to use Apple Pay, you will need to have a payment method in your account. Thankfully, adding a payment method is easy.
Once you’re in the Wallet app, you’ll see a black circle with a plus (+) sign. Tap this to add new payment methods. Once here, tap Continue to add a new card. The Apple Wallet app allows you to quickly scan a debit or credit card and it will input the information automatically, so you don’t need to type out each number individually.
You also have the option to apply for the Apple Card in the app. The Apple Card is a credit card with a variable interest rate issued by Goldman Sachs. You will need good credit to apply, and some fair credit scores are accepted.
3. Pay Merchants With Apple Pay
Once you’ve added a payment method or two, you are ready to start paying merchants. Many merchants and even vending machines have Apple Pay integration. You can quickly pay with your phone without having to pull out a card.
To pay a merchant with Apple Pay, simply double-tap the Side button on your iPhone near any Apple Pay reader device. This will pull up your Apple Pay cards. You can select the card you want to pay with and it will move to the top.
You will then be asked to confirm your payment, and you will hear a ding once the payment has been sent.
Note: If double-clicking the side button doesn’t work for you, be sure this option is enabled. To enable it, go to Settings > Wallet & Apple Pay and enable Double-Click Side Button.
4. Set Up Apple Cash to Pay Someone With Apple Pay
If you want to send money to friends and family using Apple Pay, you can! It is important to note that they must be in the US and they must also have an Apple Wallet. You currently cannot send money to other bank accounts or other payment apps (such as CashApp or Venmo) with Apple Wallet.
