Apple Pay service is a contactless payment technology for Apple mobile devices or Apple Watch, providing ProCredit Bank clients with a quick, simple and safe way to make payment transactions.
Today, Apple Pay is the most popular payment app in the world, particularly in North America and Europe.
To activate Apple Pay services, all you need is a ProCredit Bank Mastercard payment card and to add this card to the Wallet app, which is an integral part of iOS’s operating system.
Conditions for activating Apple Pay services?
Apple Pay can be used on any mobile phone using iOS version 8.1 or later.
This version includes the following devices: iPhone 6, iPad mini 3, iPad Pro, Apple Watch 1 and all later models of phones, tablets and the watch.
To activate the Apple Pay service, you are required to have a safety check set up to unlock your mobile device, whether this be a code, pattern, fingerprint or face scan.
If none of these safety measures is in place, you won’t be able to activate the Apple Pay service.
If, upon activation, you remove the safety settings put in place to unlock the card screen in your Apple Wallet app, the card will be automatically removed from the app and activation will require you to re-enter the card.
