You’ve likely seen the news, Apple Pay has finally arrived in Australia after ANZ announced they are the first bank to support the service. Apple Pay allows you to make purchases In Store, with your iPhone and Apple Watch, with the security of Touch ID. You can also make purchases In Apps using Apple Pay with compatible iPhone and iPad models.
To get started, Apple have put together a collection of Apps which support Apple Pay. When you make an online purchase with these apps, you are making one that is easy, secure and private.
Here are the seven apps from the collection:
Discover and shop from a range of crowd-curated catalog of goods, places and stores. There are thousands of stores on Fancy, so you have millions of things to choose from.
Want to get creative? Craftsy is where you can watch video tutorials on things like quilting, sewing, cake decorating, cooking, painting, photography and lots more. Millions have joined Craftsy, so you can learn from the world’s best instructors.You can then use Craftsy to buy supplies for your next project, via your iPhone or iPad using Apple Pay.
It only makes sense for Apple to build Apple Pay support into their official Store App. Shop the range of Apple products, Apple and third-party accessories, then pay using Apple Pay.
During checkout you can even choose from delivery (free in most cases) or pickup from hundreds of locations around Australia including official Apple Retail Stores.
Order food from your favourite restaurants around you, using your iPhone with Apple Pay. Then have your order delivered in an average 32 minutes by a Deliveroo driver.
The process is pretty simply, choose your favourite restaurant/cafe, choose to have it delivered today, tomorrow or to even to a different location to where you are now then track your order.
Some of the best products around the world started with Kickstarter, a community based service which allows you to fund new projects. This can be anything from art, to games, innovative technology and even Oscar-winning documentaries.
Use this app to browse from millions of projects, and fund your favourite projects all with the security and ease of Apple Pay.
