Holders of payment cards Mastercard and Visa, issued by the Russian Regional Development Bank, were able to use Apple Pay. The service allows you to pay for purchases in one-touch via Apple devices, a card for payment is not required.
At the heart of Apple Pay is security and privacy. When you add a credit or debit card to Apple Pay, the card number itself is not stored on either the device or Apple servers. Instead, a unique account number of the device is assigned, which is encrypted and safely stored in the chip “Safe Element” of the device. Each transaction is authorized with a unique one-time secret code that is generated dynamically.
Setting up Apple Pay is easy. Customers can add a credit or debit card through the Wallet application. In stores, you can pay with Apple Pay with the iPhone SE, iPhone 6 and later models, and also with Apple Watch.
Apple Pay allows you to easily make purchases in applications and on websites with one touch of your finger to the Touch ID or a double click of the side button and a look at the iPhone X to confirm the operation through Face ID. Users do not need to manually fill out large documents with contact details or re-enter shipping and billing information. When paying for purchases in applications or in Safari, Apple Pay works on the iPhone 6 or newer models, on the iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3 and newer models.
Customers can also use Apple Pay in the Safari browser on any Mac not older than 2012 with the macOS Sierra installed on the computer, while confirming payment from their iPhone 6 or newer model, either directly from Apple Watch, or by touching their finger to the Touch ID on the new MacBook Pro.
