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.

Bonus: Can you transfer an Amazon gift card?!

How can I use Apple Cash 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:

  1. Open your iPhone’s/iPad’s Settings.
  2. Scroll down and tap on Wallet and Apple Pay.
  3. Toggle on the Apple Cash.
  4. Tap on Apple Cash (it is under Payment Cards).
  5. Tap on Continue and follow the further step to complete the setup.

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.

How to transfer money to Apple Cash

  1. On your iPhone/iPad, go to the Wallet app and open it.
