How to Use Apple Pay for Your MacSales.com Order

At an October 2014 event, Apple introduced a completely new way of paying for goods and services. Apple Pay has since become a popular payment method for millions of users. But only recently – with the release of macOS Sierra and iOS 10 in late 2016 – did Apple Pay begin support use when purchasing directly from a website.

In short, Apple Pay is used to make purchases at physical stores with an Apple Watch, iPhone 6/iPhone 6 Plus or later via Near Field Communication (NFC) in tandem with the device’s Touch ID capability. Apple Pay can also be used for convenient online purchasing within a browser with an iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3 or 4, and even with the new 2016 MacBook Pro with Touch ID.

Hundreds of banks and thousands of retailers – now including MacSales.com – have adopted Apple Pay since its launch in 2014 and with its addition of support for online purchases in 2016.

If you have one of the aforementioned Touch ID devices (Note: you can use with a non-Touch ID Mac – more on this later), you will be able to begin using Apple Pay if your operating system and Safari version are up to date and you have added a credit or debit card to the Wallet app

Below is a quick guide to using Apple Pay for online purchases at MacSales.com (or other retailers).
