FAQs

What is Apple Pay?

Through an Apple device, Apple Pay is a digital payment service (e-wallet) that uses a unique transaction code and specific number. It works like a major credit or debit card, however card number details are never stored on your device or merchant servers or never shared by Apple. Transaction information is never shared and your purchases are only stored in the Wallet for your convenience, nothing else.

How does Apple Pay work?

Apple Pay allows you to pay for items by holding your iPhone or Apple Watch up to the contactless payment terminal. You can also use Apple Pay on some websites, including Alternative Airlines, and in some iOS apps.

Apple Pay removes 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. With your iPhone, iPad, and Mac, you can use Apple Pay to pay on Alternative Airlines in Safari.

All you need to do is add your credit or debit card payment details to the Wallet app on your device, and the next time you are in a shop all you need to do is hold your iPhone up to the payment terminal with your finger on the Touch ID button of your iPhone or double click the side button to trigger Face ID recognition.
