How to add a debit or credit card to Apple Pay

Set up a debit or credit card on your iPhone in just a few steps:

    1. Open Apple Wallet on your iPhone and tap the “+” button.
    2. Scan the front of your debit or credit card by positioning it in the frame.
    3. Tap Next.

Your card provider may want to verify your information by sending you an activation code. If applicable, select your verification method. Once you receive it, enter the code.

Once your card is verified, you’ll be able to make payments through Apple Pay.

What is a digital wallet?

Bottom line

With Apple Pay, you can make contactless payments using your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and Mac computer. But it’s only available on Apple devices and not all debit and credit cards are compatible. Compare banks and accounts that are compatible with Apple Pay in Canada.
