    I was at the pharmacy picking up a prescription today and I used Passbook to scan my Walgreens Rewards card. That went well, but then the pharmacist asked me if I wanted to use Apple Pay. I said no, since it doesn't start until next month, but he said he's already had 2 customers use it and it worked fine.
    I opened Passbook to put in my debit card but there's no place in the passbook app to do that. If I click the + sign, it asks me if I want to scan. But scan what on a debit or credit card?

    So I'm not quite sure what's going on, here, does anyone have a clue?

    It's supposed to scan the credit card for the number so you don't have to type it in.

    Not sure you can get there from here. At least not yet. When you attempt to scan, the Passbook app is looking for a barcode. AFAIK, none of my credit/debit cards have barcodes. I think we’re going to need an update to Passbook to make this work.

    I think it takes a picture and uses OCR or something on the CC number. That's what they showed in the keynote.

    Ok.

    Interesting that he had 2 customers use it, though. I wonder if they work for Apple and were testing it? Hmmm.

    Anyway. Thanks, guys.

    Do two people used it? By the way I've never used the Passbook

    The plus in passbook is used for scanning OCR codes to add passbook cards or coupons. Passbook just stores the cards and location services will display the appropriate card by popping up on your lock screen. You can also directly access the card threw passbook. When Apple releases Apples pay it will use your CC on file by default. You will also be able to add additional cards by scanning them thru the Apple pay app.
