In the end quarter of this year, Apple is going to introduce Apple card which is a new type of credit card service by Apple. In my opinion, the card is an extension of Apple Pay as the physical card is directly linked to Apple’s wallet app. Apple joined hands with Goldman Sachs for their most ambitious project which is known as Apple card.
Now Goldman Sachs owns the responsibility to optimize the entire Apple Pay mechanism as the main idea will be inspired from traditional credit card transaction process. There are several things that have been said and associated with the card which created a simple and enthusiasm on every credit card user and looking forward to Apple Card to use. After a deep analysis, I have made a list that guides and help you in taking your call for Apple card.
How to register for Apple card?
As per Apple officials, the registration procedure for upcoming service will not need too many formalities and documentation like a credit card. Registration or start using the card service by Apple is going to be as simple as opening a mobile wallet app. You just need to follow some activation steps and you are all done.
Once you have successfully signed up for Apple card it will be available for immediate use for making any purchase. But wait it doesn’t stop here as per Apple availability is subject to credit approval. That means you have to qualify first to use the services of Apple card just like any other credit cards. The physical card will be sent by Apple through courier so you have to wait to use till the time it is not delivered at your doorsteps.
How to use Apple card
For Apple Pay?
The Apple card is evolved to work with any other credit or debit by easily storing it in Apple pay wallet. You can choose your default card or choose at the time of paying like while shopping at Apple store or online purchase of iPhone accessories.
For Non-Apple Pay Purchase?
But what will you do where you can not make payments with Apple Pay? You can always use the physical card to pay. The card will be sent by Apple after your successful registration on the App. Apart from Goldman Sachs Apple is collaborating with Mastercard which indicates the possibility that physical card can be powered by Mastercard and accepted all along.
Which is a great decision as Mastercard is undoubtedly available everywhere and accepted across the world. This all give great universal approach as it is also accepted at all the places where Mastercard already exist.
