What is Apple Pay?

Apple Pay is a mobile payment and digital wallet service by Apple Inc. It allows users to make payments in person, in iOS apps, and on the web using Safari. It uses Near Field Communication (NFC) technology for contactless payments.

According to recent estimates, Apple Pay has over 640 million users across 83 countries around the globe.

Using Apple Pay is similar to using a credit card, but instead of carrying a physical card, it stores payment info on a device, typically a smartphone. Users can link their debit and credit cards to the Wallet app on their iPhones. This setup allows Apple Pay users to make quick and convenient payments both online and in physical stores.

The best thing about Apple Pay is that it simplifies the checkout process. Users can complete transactions with a simple touch or even using Face ID, Touch ID, or a passcode.

Such convenience, coupled with robust security, makes Apple Pay an attractive payment option for both consumers and merchants.
