Both Tesco Bank and TSB have announced that their UK branches now support the new Apple Pay payment service making it easier to make mobile payments.
If you are a customer of either TSB UK or Tesco Bank UK you can now use the iOS Wallet application and scan your credit card or simply authenticate your account you may already have set up at the iTunes store.
Both banks say that the Apple Pay setup should take no longer than five minutes. Tesco explains more about the new Apple Pay facility they have setup for the UK Tesco Bank service.
To use Apple Pay you will need a Tesco Bank credit card featuring the MasterCard logo. Unfortunately Visa or Business credit cards are excluded.
You will also need an iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6s or 6s Plus, iPad Air 2, iPad Pro or iPad mini 3 or 4 or an Apple Watch with iOS8.3 or later. To add your Tesco Bank credit card to your iPhone, open the Wallet app and follow the instructions. You’ll receive a one-time passcode from Tesco Bank that’s valid for three days. Once you enter the passcode, you’re ready to shop.
