What is Apple Pay?
If you’ve seen someone using their iPhone to tap and pay in a café, supermarket or a department store, you’ve seen Apple Pay in motion. It is a fast way to get rewarded while making payments through the Apple devices you use every day. It’s simple to set up, easy to use and it’s safe.
Apple uses the latest technology to keep your information safe. Device-specific numbers and unique transaction codes mean your card number is never stored on your device, or on Apple servers, and never shared by Apple with merchants.
How can I get rewarded through Apple Pay?
Apple Pay allows you to make purchases both on your Apple devices as well as online, without having to fill out lengthy forms or provide your card information. You can use Apple Pay at any store where contactless payments are accepted – just look for the contactless symbol or Apple Pay mark. You can also use it inside apps and online in Safari when you see the ‘Buy with Apple’ button or Apple Pay as a payment option.
To get started, just link your card, or cards, to your Apple wallet and you will continue to benefit from all the rewards that come with your debit or credit card. You will also continue to accumulate benefits on your merchant specific reward cards, such as the EML Incentive Card, which is available on Apple Pay.
Linking your cards to your Apple Wallet is straight forward. All you need to do is:
- open your Wallet App and tap the + button on the top right corner.
- follow the prompts. and
- your card has been added to your Apple Wallet and you are ready to go!
