It's here. Extra easy payments with Apple Pay.

Just as rewarding

If you currently receive rewards or benefits with your Halifax debit or credit card, you’ll still be eligible to receive these when you make a purchase using Apple Pay.

Safe and secure

Security is a priority. So your debit or credit card number isn’t shared with the retailer. It’s not stored on your device or on any Apple servers either. Your most recent purchases will be displayed in your Wallet app.

Get set up in a few simple steps

It’s easy to add your Halifax debit or credit cards to start using Apple Pay. The process is a little different between each device type.

iPhone 6/6+ and later models including the iPhone SE (must be running the latest iOS):

1. Open the Passbook/Wallet app.
2. Tap the plus sign to add a new card, then follow the on-screen instructions.
3. Use the camera function to scan your card (you may be asked to manually enter your card details). Enter the security code found on the back of your card, and fill in any remaining fields.

Apple Watch:


1. Open the Apple Watch app on your iPhone (must be running the latest iOS) and select ‘Passbook/Wallet & Apple Pay’.
2. Select ‘Add a Credit or Debit Card’.
3. Use the camera function to scan your card (you may be asked to manually enter your card details). Enter the security code found on the back of your card, and fill in any remaining fields.

For security reasons, you will need to verify your card. The Wallet or Apple Watch app will tell you how.
