Use Apple Pay on your Mac
You can make easy, secure, and private purchases on websites using Apple Pay on your MacBook Air. With Apple Pay, your Apple Card and other credit or debit card information is never stored or shared by Apple with the merchant. When you shop online using Safari, look for an Apple Pay button. You can complete a purchase using Touch ID on your MacBook Air. Otherwise, use your iPhone or Apple Watch to complete the purchase. Keep reading for details.
Note: Apple Pay and Apple Card aren’t available in all countries or regions. For information about Apple Pay, go to Cashless made effortless. For information about current card issuers, see the Apple Support article Apple Pay participating banks. For information about Apple Card, see Apple Card Support.
Make a purchase using Touch ID. On your MacBook Air, you’re prompted to configure Apple Pay during setup. When you choose Apple Pay on a website, place your finger lightly on the Touch ID sensor to authenticate and complete your purchase.
Make a purchase with iPhone or Apple Watch. You can use your iPhone or Apple Watch to complete a purchase. No extra setup is required—Apple Pay uses the Apple Card or other credit or debit cards you’ve already set up on your iPhone or Apple Watch. You must be signed in to an iPhone or Apple Watch that has Apple Pay set up with the same Apple ID you’re using on your MacBook Air. Click the Apple Pay button on the website, then to confirm the payment, use Face ID, Touch ID, or the passcode on your iPhone, or double-click the side button on your unlocked Apple Watch.
Note: If you don’t choose to set up Apple Pay when you first start up your MacBook Air, you can set it up later in the Wallet & Apple Pay pane of System Preferences. Manage your Apple Card and other payment cards there—add or delete cards and make updates to contact information.
