New Paytrail: Apple Pay

In this article, you'll find an introduction to Apple Pay and instructions on how to set it up. The payment method is only available in the new Paytrail.

What is Apple Pay?

Apple Pay makes your Apple device a secure means of payment: the consumer can pay with the cards attached to the device, and there is no need to worry about entering card information. For online shopping, Apple Pay is available in the Safari browser on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac. Payment can be accepted directly on the device with one click.
