Apple Pay and Lydia: General Information
Apple Pay lets you spend money from your Lydia account in any store or website using your mobile phone.
Paying contactless in-store 🛍️
Apple Pay uses Apple devices' integrated NFC (Near Field Communication) chips to perform contactless payments in every store equipped with traditional card terminals. To pay contactless, you only need to:
- Approach your device (iPhone or Apple Watch) from the payment terminal (the NFC chip automatically detects it)
- Activate Touch ID or Face ID to authorise the contactless payment. On Apple Watches, perform two clicks on the side button.
- That's it, your purchase is paid for !
Apple Pay payments are far more secured than contactless credit card payments. Hence, there is no amount limit with contactless mobile payment.
Paying online and in mobile apps 💻
E-commerce websites and apps offer the "Pay with Apple Pay" option, in order to let you pay easier online. To do so:
- Select "Pay with Apple Pay" when checking out
- Use Touch ID or Face ID to authorise the payment
- That's it ! Your order is paid for.
Secure Payments 🔐
Card numbers are masked by Apple Pay: they are never stored on the device nor transmitted to any retailers during the payment process. No thief can steal it and use it to debit your account.
