Apple Pay Makes Going Cashless Easy for US Customers Starting
Beginning today, Apple customers in the US can use Apple Pay to send and receive money with friends and family quickly, easily and securely. Whether splitting a bill, paying someone back or sending a last-minute gift, Apple Pay makes it easy to pay and get paid, right in Messages.
Apple Pay is now the simplest and most convenient way to make person to person payments on iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch. Apple customers already use iMessage to communicate with friends and family, and now they can get paid right within those everyday conversations, or by just asking Siri to pay someone. They can use the debit and credit cards they already have added to Apple Pay, so there’s no need to install an app or create yet another account.
When users get paid, the money they receive is added to their new Apple Pay Cash card that lives in the Wallet app. They can use the money instantly1 to pay someone or make purchases using Apple Pay in stores, apps and on the web. They can also choose to transfer it from Apple Pay Cash to their bank account.
