  • Add a payment method: Tap Add Payment Method. You might see a suggestion to add a card that you use with Apple Pay. (If you add a new credit or debit card, you might see an option to add the new card to Apple Pay.)
  • Update a payment method: Tap the payment method that you want to change, then edit your information. Make sure that your information matches what’s on file with your financial institution. You might need to enter the security code that’s printed on your credit or debit card. If you see Apple Pay after the last 4 digits of the card number, edit your billing information in the Wallet app.
