Here’s how to setup Apple Pay if your bank is supported (full list):

On the iPhone, just head to the Wallet app on iOS 9 and tap the plus (+) icon in the top right corner to begin, then follow the prompts. To add a debit card to the Apple Watch, go to the Apple Watch app on iPhone and look for the Wallet & Apple Pay section, then Add Credit or Debit Card section. iPads with Touch ID can use Apple Pay in apps; go to Settings then Wallet & Apple Pay to add your card there.

Apple Pay Contactless Payment LogoIf you’re looking for places to test out Apple Pay, Exxon Mobile recently added support for buying gas with Apple Pay through its SpeedPass+ app. Stores like the Apple Store, Best Buy, Whole Foods, and Walgreens all accept Apple Pay as payment at checkout, and McDonalds, Subway, and many restaurants through OpenTable accept Apple Pay payments as well. Apple also has a list of official partners here, and anywhere with the contactless payment logo at checkout should accept Apple Pay.

Apple Pay works with the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, Apple Watch, iPad mini 4, iPad Air 2, and iPad Pro. The rumored 4-inch iPhone SE that we’re expecting to see at Monday’s event will also work with Apple Pay.

    I still don’t get why it was setup to go threw each bank separate. Why wasn’t it made to go directly threw visa, MasterCard, Discover, and so on like many others do. This thing of it being each bank is locking so many people out. There are tons of smaller banks that will never be on Apple Pay.
