Frequently asked questions

What is Apple Pay?

Apple Pay is a secure and easy-to-use mobile payment service that can be used to pay in stores wherever Contactless payments are accepted; just look for the Contactless or Apple Pay symbol.

It enables the use of eligible cards through compatible Apple devices by leveraging existing Near Field Communication (NFC) technology to make mobile payments.

You can also use it to make in-app and E-commerce purchases wherever the Apple Pay logo is displayed.

How do I activate Apple Pay?

Sign in to the app, tap the card icon in the lower left. Next, select add to Apple Pay and follow the instructions. You can also add the card through Apple Wallet, but we primarily recommend activation through the app. If you require guidance, you can contact us via 020 3422 2223.

 

Do I need a mobile data or Wi-Fi connection to use Apple Pay?

Mobile data or Wi-Fi connection is not required for making transactions using Apple Pay. You will need a mobile data or Wi-Fi to set up a card on the Wallet and to receive transaction notifications.

 

Why do I get a message to contact the card issuer when I try to activate Apple Pay?
That message can appear occasionally and is because the entire activation could not be completed automatically. You can try restarting your phone and adding the card through the app instead of via Apple Wallet. Sign in to the app, tap the card icon in the lower left. Next, select add to Apple Pay and follow the instructions. 

Also check the following on your card:

  • The card is not locked in the app

  • You do not have a negative balance on the card

Of course, it is also possible to call us 24/7 or to send an email to get help with activation.

 

During set-up I have been prompted for a one-time passcode. What is this and why is it required?

As a security measure, we send a one-time passcode which can be received by text or email.  You will verify your identity by entering this code in the appropriate field. 

I can't activate my Apple Pay card in my Apple Watch. What should I do?
