Apple combined its Touch ID/Face ID features with a secure one-step payment process to form Apple Pay, using Apple Pay is faster and more secure than using a debit/credit card.


All you have to do is place the back panel of the iPhone (the area where the cameras are located) near the NFC card terminal to make the payment.


However, before you do this, you must set up Apple Pay on your iPhone. This is a simple process, it will only take you a few minutes to complete it.
