    Apple Pay has officially arrived in Malaysia and you must be wondering how to activate it! For those who are unfamiliar, Apple Pay is a secure and convenient payment method that replaces physical cards and cash. You can use it whether you’re in a store, online, or sending money to friends or family.

    Before we proceed with the step-by-step on how to add your card and activate your Apple Pay, you need to make sure that your Apple device and payment card are able to support the feature. The device that is compatible would be the iPhone 6 and onward and as for Apple Watch, you need Watch Series 1 and above. 

    As of right now, it is confirmed that you can use payment cards issued from AmBank, Maybank and Standard Chartered for Apple Pay.

    For iPhone: 

    • Face ID:  Double-click the side button.
    • Touch ID: Double-click the Home button.
    • Hold the top of your iPhone near the contactless reader until ‘Done’ and a checkmark appears on the display.

    For Apple Watch:

    • Double-click the side button.
    • Hold your Apple Watch’s display near the contactless reader until you feel a gentle tap and hear a beep.

    Other than a physical store, you can also use Apple Pay for online purchases. As we reported a few days ago, Shopee might integrate Apple Pay as one of its payment methods soon. You can simply check out if the e-commerce platform has the Apple Pay option. 

    With the arrival of Apple Pay in Malaysia, it will not only support the government initiative to encourage more cashless payment in the country but also provide a smoother purchase experience to users.
