One of the most innovative ways of payment in the past couple of years, Apple Pay, is a mobile and digital wallet service allowing users a completely different, “futuristic” payment experience.
In addition, with the pandemic still going on and with the expansion of online shopping, platforms such as Amazon and eBay are the go-to shopping place for millions of consumers worldwide.
If you too are shopping on Amazon, you might be wondering does Amazon takes Apple Pay and how you can actually use it there?
However, we have to mention that even though Apple Pay is available in more than 2 million stores in the US, if Amazon is not part of those stores, people cannot use Apple Pay as a way of payment.
Fortunately, you can use cards in your Apple Cash as part of Apple Pay to pay for your purchases on Amazon.
Apple Cash, as part of Apple Pay, allows users to send and receive payments over iMessage, and the money you send or receive through it will directly reflect on your Apple Pay account. Also, same as Apple Pay, it is not supported on Amazon but there is a workaround that you can try out and it all starts with setting up an Apple Cash on your iPhone for it to work.
Here are the steps on how to do it:
After the Apple Cash is set up on your iOS device you are free to add money to it and make payments using it on Apple Pay. In addition, you can send money to other people via iMessages or even transfer money from Apple Cash to your own bank account.
Reminder: Amazon does not support Apple Cash but supports an Apple Card. Therefore, since your Apple Cash is linked with the Wallet app on your iPhone, you can use your Apple Cash balance to pay your Apple Card.
This way, you will use your Apple Cash to shop on Amazon with your Apple Card. Here are the steps for that:
After you’ve completed these steps, you can start making payments with it and once you have used your Apple Card on Amazon, you can use your Apple Cash to pay your monthly bill.
These are the steps on how to pay your Apple Card bill using Apple Cash:
And you are done!
This is how you can use your Apple Card with your Apple Cash and do purchases on Amazon as you wish.
