Apple Pay

Contactless payments without the £100 limit

Use your Apple device1 to pay with your debit card or Barclaycard wherever you see the Apple Pay or contactless logo.

  • It’s quick, convenient and free to use
  • It’s secure, with Touch ID and Face ID
  • Pay using contactless, for any amount you like
  • Use it in apps too

A secure way to pay

Apple Pay is safe and secure to use. Your card details won’t be stored on your Apple device or sent to merchants, so your information stays private and secure.

Plus, payments need to be authorised with Touch ID or Face ID when paying in store or in-app.

In-store payments

Hundreds of thousands of stores now accept Apple Pay, as well as Transport for London. You can use Apple Pay anywhere that accepts contactless payments. And you can now make payments for any amount with Apple Pay, though some retailers have a £100 limit.

In-app purchases

Many apps now accept Apple Pay, so you don’t have to enter your card details to make in-app purchases. Simply select Apple Pay at the checkout and use Touch ID or Face ID to complete your payment.
