Voila! You are all set up with Apple Pay and can start using it to make purchases in person and online.
Why is it helpful for Dollar Tree to take Apple Pay?
Apple touts their digital payment option as a safer alternative to using a physical credit or debit card. Though we’re always concerned about hacks and the like, the Face ID, Touch ID, and passcode required to make purchases on your iPhone, Apple Watch, Mac, or iPad reportedly make the technology very secure. Additionally, Apple Pay doesn’t share your card number or identity with the merchants you’re interacting with. It also doesn’t store your card numbers on your device or even Apple servers.
