    Default How to use it?

    Firstly, I'm posting this from Tapatalk, to this section. Currently, I see no posts here.

    Is there a guide or something that shows how to use Apple Pay? I believe I have my card setup, but...

    From the lock screen, double tap the home button. Don't push. It should bring up the Pay screen.

    Ah, brilliant. It seems relatively easy. Now to test it somewhere, without feeling embarrassed

    Try McD's or Subway.

    McDonald's is probably the fastest to use with regard to Pay. It is in my experience. With Subway, the clerk has to push a button or something prior to you being able to pay via Pay - at least that's been my experience with the one I frequent.

    My bank just recently added it. I have yet to use it. I forget it in the drive thru.

    Using Pay is awesome! In regard to McDonald's, I've never used it at the Drive-thru, but I've used it numerous times when dining in. It's very fast.

    Finally I have my card setup correctly. With the iPhone 6S Plus, it appears one has to double click the home button, from the locked screen.

    I waited too long to try it not wanting to hold up a line or whatever. I finally did it a few months back - I had my phone unlocked/awake in a no-line situation and asked the cashier how to pay with Apple Pay. She didn't know how to do it so she asked her manager to come over and he showed us both. She had never seen anything like it and thought it was so cool. So I ended up showing someone else new instead of ending up being embarrassed.

    Same day I went to second store (now wanting to use this everywhere) and the cashier's eyes lit up and he began asking me what was that, how do you do that, what is the app called and he just couldn't wait to get it.

    So I had a first great day with my Apple Pay. One tip I can give, echoing another person's comment, is don't press down on the fingerprint reader. Somehow I didn't know that at first. Just rest finger on there and get your phone to the reader to tap - warning: it's addictive

    After using Apple Pay for a while, I just want to use it everywhere now! A shame some places don't support it...

    I hear ya! It seems like tokenized payments in general are slowly rolling out. Hopefully we continue to see more over time.

    I use it all the time in the UK. Used it about 4 times today. The car park i was in had a contactless reader on it so even used it there. All the shops I use now are all contactless. It's really quick to use and totally safe!!

    Double-tap from the home button works from the lock screen but you can also open your Wallet app and use a registered fingerprint to pay just by resting your finger on the Home button. And it's accepted everywhere they accept contactless payment =)
