Paying with Apple Pay
Lydia lets users pay contactless in any store using their iPhone or Apple Watch. They just have to approach their device from the payment terminal to pay. Payment is instant.
Why should I use Apple Pay to pay in-store ?
When paying contactless, it is always better choosing a phone over a debit/credit card. Simply because...
- It is safer than the card: every payment needs to be authorised thanks to a Face ID or Touch ID biometric authentication.
- Fast: payment is made in less than a second. Users instantly receive a notofication on their phone that sums up the transaction (amount, date, time).
- Without amount limit: users can pay €1 or €1,000 using contactless mobile payment. On the contrary, credit cards are limited to €30 per contactless payment.
Using Apple Pay to pay in-store 💸
There are two steps to paying using Apple Pay:

Pay online and in apps using Apple Pay 📱
Some online merchants and apps let users choose to pay with "Apple Pay" when choosing the payment method.
- From an iPhone or an iPad: a simple Touch ID fingerprint recognition will be asked to authorise the payment.
