Apple Pay is the new payment system from Apple for iPhones, iPads and Apple Watches. The payment system works using a contactless function as well as Apple's own Wallet app. An existing card can easily be registered in the Wallet app for this. You can find more information about Apple Pay on the Apple website
Anywhere a payment terminal is equipped with NFC (Near Field Communication). This technology allows for secure data exchange. You can already make contactless payments all over the world today.
When you pay, you hold the device (iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch) up to the NFC terminal. Your finger is placed on the Touch ID fingerprint scanner or the code is entered to authorize the purchase. You no longer need a PIN code for your card, as usual up until now.
Apple Pay is an easy, secure and private payment method that is based on your card's current security functions. Apple Pay does not save any transaction data and your card number is never shared on your device or when paying the merchant.

As cardholders authorize the payment through a fingerprint sensor (Touch ID) or code (iPhone/IPad) or unlocked Apple Watch, it is also guaranteed with Apple Pay that only the owners of the devices are making the payment.
