There were times when people dreamt of making payment without cash or Credit/Debit card. And now the dream came true when the service was announced by Apple in the form of Apple Pay. It is the feature that allows users to make payments through iPhone 6/iPhone 6 Plus or the Apple Watch. It requires no Credit/Debit cards to be scratched or shown while making pay.

Apple has linked up with nearly 16 top banks such as, American Express, Bank of America, PNC, etc. across the US for Credit/Debit card support; just add the information of your Credit/Debit card to your Passbook and make transactions on Apple Pay supported stores anytime in the US.

Apple Pay-compatible Cards and BanksThe banks that work with Apple Pay do not support all the cards, such as, personal credit cards, personal debit cards, prepaid cards, corporate cards, etc. Not all banks support all types of cards. Every bank supports some particular card. For instance, J.P. Morgan supports only Personal Credit cards. It does not support any other cards. You can get the detail information in the chart given below:

List of Banks and Credit Cards That Support Apple Pay

The transactions you make through Apple Pay are safe and protected. Apple does not keep your transaction detail and even the retailer where you pay does not get your original Credit/Debit cards number. When you add your card detail in the Passbook, a unique Device Account Number is assigned along with it. The detail of your card is securely encrypted in the dedicated chip that is known as Secure Element in the iPhone 6/6 Plus or Apple Watch. When you make a pay the original information is not transferred to the retailer. Here, the DNA creates a transaction ID each time you make payment.

Note that if you run into an error – while adding your card to Apple Pay – that says the card doesn’t support Apple Pay, it’s most likely because the bank and Apple haven’t decided to support the card for Apple Pay transactions.
