Most major banks and credit card issuers in Australia now offer Apple Pay, which means you can make payments directly from an iPhone, Apple Watch or even an iPad (as long as it's a newer model that offers Apple Pay compatibility).

But there are still some credit cards that don't work with Apple Pay, even if the transaction account equivalent does. So here, we've got a rundown of which banks and brands offer Apple Pay on their credit cards and which ones don't. Plus more details on how to use Apple Pay when you have a compatible credit card.

How does Apple Pay work?

apple pay logo
Apple Pay uses NFC (Near Field Communication) technology that's built in your device, allowing you to tap it against the card reader to pay for your purchases without getting your card out.

It works with any iOS device that offers Apple Pay compatibility. The number of cards you can add depends on the phone: up to 8 accounts pre-iPhone 8, up to 12 accounts for iPhone 8, and up to 16 accounts for iPhone XS or later. You can also use the digital wallet with Apple Watch and some iPads.

How to add your credit card to Apple Wallet and set up Apple Pay

Before you can start using the app, you'll need to store your eligible card details in the Wallet app.

  1. Open Wallet. On an iPhone this will be an app on your home screen. On an iPad you need to open Settings and tap "Wallet & Apple Pay".
  2. Tap the + symbol in the app.
  3. Select "Debit or credit card". Then click Continue in the next screen.
  4. Scan your credit card. Make sure the credit card is positioned perfectly in the frame to scan it. You can also manually type in the details if needed.
  5. Confirm details. Check the details have been scanned incorrectly. Then tap "Next". Your bank will then verify your information to determine whether or not your card is compatible with Apple Pay. You may be asked to provide more details to verify your card.
  6. Tap "Next". You can now start using Apple Pay at participating outlets. You should also see the option to pair with Apple Watch.

Is Apple Pay safe to use?

Apple Pay includes a number of measures that protect your data and device. For example, instead of using your actual credit card numbers when you add your card, a unique Device Account Number is assigned, encrypted and safely stored in a dedicated chip in your Apple device known as the Secure Element.

When you use Apple Pay to make a purchase, the Device Account Number and a transaction-specific dynamic security code are used to approve your payment. Unlike physical credit cards, every payment requires a Touch ID, Face ID or a passcode, which reduces the chances of someone using your phone for payments if it's stolen.

What if my device is lost or stolen?

If your iPhone or iPad is misplaced or stolen, you can use the "Find My iPhone" app to put your device in Lost Mode. This allows you to either suspend Apple Pay or to wipe your device clean. If you've synced your device with iCloud, you can log in to your iCloud account and select "Settings" to disable your phone from making payments with your credit or debit card.

What are Apple Pay alternatives?

Apple Pay is an easy way for iPhone fans to make contactless payments with a tap of their smartphone. If you don't use an Apple device, you may want to consider options such as Google Pay or Samsung Pay. Otherwise, you can also compare debit cards with contactless payment capability.
