◆ What is Apple Pay?
It is very easy to use, it is simple to select the credit card you want to use on the iPhone, perform fingerprint authentication, hold it over the payment terminal of the shop, or simply settle the payment on the net shop and payment is completed. On Apple's site, it is expressed as "Your wallet. Without the wallet." (Your wallet that you can use without carrying around).
Just use the iPhone to the payment terminal and touch the fingerprint authentication button. From 2015 you can also use it with Apple Watch, in that case you will double-click the button on the right side of the main unit. Card information used for payment is stored in the iPhone, but only payment-specific dynamic security code (transaction-specific dynamic security code) and terminal account number only effective for the transaction are transmitted at settlement, It is a big feature that my credit number is never transmitted to shops.
Credit card information will be saved in Passbook of iPhone application. Just register cards using iTunes or shoot cards with iSight camera on iPhone. It seems possible to register more than one card.
