What is Apple Pay and Google Pay?
Apple Pay and Google Pay are both mobile payment solutions that lets consumers (like you!) make credit and debit payments at retail and online checkouts using certain compatible mobile devices, like most modern phones. You can check to see if you device is compatible with Apple Pay by clicking here. Google Pay is compatible with most contemporary android phones.
Are These Safe Ways to Pay?
They’re actually safer than using a card. Each transaction is uniquely protected and encoded. The cashiers never even see your personal information.
How to Use Apple Pay or Google Pay in Participating Stores
Look for the Pay Wave® or Google Pay symbol at the store’s checkout machine, and hold your phone near the reader where the symbol is located. See below for a visual example of what to look for.
Then, place your finger on the home key, or your Touch ID™, or you may need to enter a pass-code and sign a receipt. Some phones also have facial recognition software as well. The icons below may be one of the prompts you encounter.
Keep your phone by the reader until it vibrates and beeps, indicating your payment was accepted. And that’s it!
