How to pay at the checkout using Apple Pay

Using your default card

  • Hold your device up to the EFTPOS terminal
  • Place your finger over the Touch ID button
  • Wait for the done icon to be displayed which confirms your transaction was successful.

Using an alternate card

  • Hold your device up to the EFTPOS terminal
  • Wait until your device prompts you to select the payment method
  • Select the card you wish to pay with from the wallet, by clicking the card image
  • Use Touch ID to verify your payment
  • Wait for the done icon to be displayed which confirms your transaction was successful.


How to Pay with Apple Pay in Apps

  • Tap the Buy with Apple Pay or Apple Pay button.
  • Check your billing, delivery, and contact information to make they are correct.
  • If you want to pay with a different card, tap > next to your card.
  • If you need to, enter your billing, delivery, and contact information. Apple Pay will store that information, so you won't need to enter it again.
  • Place your finger on Touch ID. After your payment information sends successfully, you'll see Done icon.


Apple Pay is Secure and Private

  • The card reader (EFTPOS machine) never sees your debit or credit card number.
  • When you use Apple Pay, your card number is never shared with the merchant or saved on your device
  • No need to hand over your card at the checkout so your card details remain private.
  • No need to open the application or even unlock your iPhone, as Apple Pay is always running and is activated by a signal from the EFTPOS terminal.
  • Because your fingerprint is more secure than a PIN the $100 tap-and-go limit does not apply for Apple Pay.
