Apple Pay Cash Now Available with Latest iOS Update

Apple Pay Cash Now Available with Latest iOS Update

However, you can send payments using the service via an iPhone, iPad, or an Apple Watch.

But in case you're not quite sure how to get started, Apple has published a short how-to video on its YouTube channel.

After I completed these steps, I was asked to add a debit card so that money could be transferred to my new bank account.

To set up Apple Pay Cash, open the Wallet app and select the Apple Pay Cash card at the top. If you're using Apple's system and want to pay an Android user, you're going to have to hand over dirty old dollar bills, for now.

The initiating person (the payer) loads the appropriate credit or debit cards into their phone to be used in ApplePay in the Wallet app. Finally, for debit or prepaid credit card to Apple Pay Cash transfers, there is a $10 minimum and a $3,000 maximum per transfer, with a $10,000 weekly limit. The biggest advantage of Venmo, PayPal, and Facebook Payments, however, is that they're platform-independent-with any of them, you can send money to anyone, regardless of the operating system they use. The process is identical for adding any other credit card to Apple Pay.

"Apple Pay Cash creates a whole new tender type, and while it may only represent a small stream of transactions now, it will be interesting to see how actively consumers adopt it for making purchases", Crone said.

Instead of having Apple Pay Cash pull from your credit or debit card each time you make a transaction, you can put some money into your Apple Pay account via one of your linked bank accounts and draw from that.




Getting in a bit late on Facebook Messenger, Google Wallet, and PayPal's action, Apple Pay Cash is the latest peer-to-peer payment system from a tech giant. Google Wallet, also available for iOS, adds the ability to split payments among multiple recipients.

Apple refuses to confirm its arrangements from banks, noting that banks indicate Apple Pay has enabled them to expand transactions through more customer touchpoints since its introduction in October 2014. It takes you through the basics step-by-step, so you'll know exactly what to do in just over a minute.

What Can You Do with Your Apple Pay Cash Balance?

You can use that money to send to other people through iMessage, just like we showed you above, but that's just the tip of the iceberg.

Tap on the Apple Pay Cash card that appears there.

You'll have to enter your bank account information, including your routing and account numbers, to link Apple Pay Cash to your bank account.

You can use that balance either by dumping it back into a connected bank account or to pay for something else via Apple Pay or Apple Pay Cash.
