Apple Pay has begun rolling out across Australia, allowing American Express cardholders to make NFC mobile payments using iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus and Apple Watch devices.
“Card members with a card issued directly by American Express can add their eligible personal, small business and corporate American Express card and pay at participating stores where contactless American Express payments are currently accepted,” American Express says.
“They will have easy access to the American Express mobile app directly from the Wallet app for on-the-go access to Amex Offers and the ability to use their Membership Rewards points to pay for recent purchases in the American Express mobile app.”
“Card members can also use their iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 4, iPad mini 3 or iPad Pro to pay within participating merchant apps,” the company adds.
“Card members can go to the Wallet app in iOS 9 to get started. If a card member already has an eligible American Express card on file with iTunes, they only need to type in the card verification code or they can simply choose to add a new American Express card.”
