How to use Apple Pay?

With an iPhone or Apple Watch, you can use Apple Pay whenever you see one of these symbols:

You can use Apple Pay to pay in shops, restaurants, taxis, vending machines and many other places.

You can also use your iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch to buy apps or to make in-app purchases. Use Apple Pay when you see this button, or if Apple Pay is listed as one of the payment methods. You might also see buttons with the text “Donate with Apple Pay” or “Buy with Apple Pay”:

In your iPhone, iPad and Mac, you can use Apple Pay to make online purchases.

Privacy and security for every payment

When you make a purchase, Apple Pay will use a device-specific number and a unique transaction code. In other words, your card details are never stored on your device or on Apple servers. Apple will never share your card number with merchants.

Apple Pay payments are considered to be contactless payments and thus they affect the contactless payments’ limit. If you want to make a larger payment, you need to make sure that the contactless payment limit allows it. You can check the limit of the contactless payments in the Internet bank or in the mobile app.

When paying with an LHV Partner Card, you cannot earn extra points because the system does not distinguish the numbers on the card you are using. Microinvestment works.

The cashier can use the Device Account Number to find the purchase and process the return, just as they would with a plastic credit or debit card payment.

When you view a card in Wallet, you see recent transactions for each credit or debit card.

Apple Pay is safer than using a plastic credit or debit card. Every transaction on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac requires you to authenticate with Face ID, Touch ID, or your passcode.

Your Apple Watch is protected by the passcode that only you know, and your passcode is required every time you put on your Apple Watch or when you pay using Apple Pay.

Your card number and identity aren’t shared with the merchant, and your actual card numbers aren’t stored on your device or on Apple servers.

When you pay in stores, neither Apple nor your device sends your actual card numbers to merchants.

When you pay within apps and on the web in Safari, the merchant will only receive information like name, email address, billing and shipping addresses that you give authority to share to complete your order.

Apple Pay retains anonymous transaction information such as approximate purchase amount. This information can’t be tied back to you and never includes what you're buying.

Apps that use Apple Pay must have a privacy policy that you can view, which governs the use of your data.

With Apple Pay, you authorize each purchase with Face ID, Touch ID, or your passcode. These features help prevent other people from using Apple Pay on your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, or Mac.

You can go to your Apple ID account page or use the Find My app on an iPhone or iPad to suspend or permanently remove the ability to pay from that device with Apple Pay.

You can also call your bank or card issuer to suspend or remove your cards from Apple Pay.

You can also contact LHV customer support on 6 800 400 to suspend or remove cards from Apple Pay.
