How to Set Up and Use Apple Pay Cash on Your iPhone
08 December 2017, 12:30 | Cameron Gross
Apple Pay Cash and person to person payments now available
Apple has published a new how-to video to teach iOS users the basics of Apple Pay Cash.
According to Apple, you will have to have two-factor authentication turned on to use the app.
Tap on the Apple Pay Cash card that appears there. If not, a slider switch in the Wallet & Apple Pay section of Settings lets you enable Apple Pay Cash.
Apple has expanded their cash/cardless ApplePay system to allow direct person-to-person payments, just using the native Messages app on iOS devices and Apple Watch OS. Sometimes this option won't show up until it's been activated through the Wallet app, though. The biggest advantage of Venmo, PayPal, and Facebook Payments, however, is that they're platform-independent-with any of them, you can send money to anyone, regardless of the operating system they use.
"If they can accept Apple Pay Cash payments, you'll see a dollar amount that you can change using the "+" and "-" buttons or pull up the keypad to enter in a custom amount. Google Wallet, also available for iOS, adds the ability to split payments among multiple recipients. During this time, you can cancel the payment, but once it has been accepted, there's no turning back.
You can set up Apple Pay Cash in the Wallet & Apple Pay area inside the Settings app. That cash can be used for purchases or it can be transferred to a bank account. Finally, for debit or prepaid credit card to Apple Pay Cash transfers, there is a $10 minimum and a $3,000 maximum per transfer, with a $10,000 weekly limit. From there, Apple Pay Cash will take a few seconds to activate.
Though retail purchases are possible with Apple Pay Cash, the service's primary function is an easy way to transfer money between friends through iMessage.
Banks and processors contacted for this story referred all questions about Apple Pay Cash to Apple, which declined to comment on the toll banks pay for Apple Pay.
Although the product is rolled out as a person to person solution, I have to imagine that Apple is just fine having users store their money with them (though their bank partner GoBank) and then use those balances to shop with their app. We could use it on Monday, but it's not available to everyone yet. The service also works with any Apple Watch running watchOS 4.2 or later.
The connection between banks and Apple Pay has been uneasy at times, and the introduction this week of Apple Pay Cash does little to assuage concerns about how far the tech giant's tentacles may eventually extend into commerce.
