The card added to your Apple Wallet first will become primary: all purchases will be paid for with this card. You can change your primary card under the Settings (for iPhone or iPad) or the Watch app (for Apple Watch). In both cases, you need Wallet and Apple Pay sections.

Paying

Online Using iPhone or iPad
  1. Click the Buy button with the Apple Pay icon.
  2. Confirm the payment with Touch ID on your phone or tablet.

Money will be debited from your card set as primary. If you want to pay with another card, do not put your finger on Touch ID right away: tap the card image first—it will appear on your phone or tablet screen. Your device will suggest you to select another card from your Apple Wallet.

At Stores and Coffee Shops, with iPhone

Press your finger against Touch ID and hold your phone near the reader. Wait for the terminal to make a sound signal and remove the phone—the payment is successful.

Money will be debited from your card set as primary. If you want to pay with another card, do not put your finger on Touch ID straight away: first, hold your smartphone near the reader and tap the card image. Your device will suggest you to select another card from your Apple Wallet.

At Stores and Coffee Shops, with Apple Watch
  1. Push your Apple Watch's side button twice.
  2. Hold your Apple Watch screen near the reader.
  3. A slight vibration signifies the payment is made—get the payment receipt.

Money will be debited from your card set as primary. If you want to pay with another card, do not push the side button right away: hold your Apple Phone near the reader and tap the card image on the screen. Your device will suggest you to select another card from your Apple Wallet.

When you need to pay more than 1000 ₽ at a store or a cafe, the PIN is required to confirm the payment. If you don't know the PIN, change it in the card's settings at the website or in the Yandex.Money app.

Issues with Phone or Card

Phone Got Lost

Turn on Lost Mode on the Apple site immediately: Apple Pay will be blocked on this device. You do not need to block your cards added to Apple Wallet.

If you got a new SIM card, do not forget to change the phone number linked to your wallet.

Payment Won't Go Through

Possible reasons:

  • the reader does not support contactless payments,
  • not enough money in your wallet; you need to add money to it,
  • you hit one of the Yandex.Money limits
  • your Yandex.Money card expired (virtual card expires in one year, plasic card expires in 3 years)
  • you are paying somewhere outside of Russia and your user status is anonymous; in this case, you need to upgrade it.

If neither of these reasons is the case, write to us.

Card Expired

When the card you added for Apple Pay expires, issue a new one and add it to Apple Wallet. You can delete the old one.

Forgot My PIN

Just change it in the Cards section at the website or in the Yandex.Money app.
