To add a card on Apple Watch, you must first pair your Watch with a supported iPhone running on iOS 8.2 or later using the Apple Watch app. Once paired, open the Apple Watch app on your iPhone, select "Wallet & Apple Pay" and then tap "Add Debit or Credit Card." Please note that the iPhone 5, 5c and 5s only enable payments for the Apple Watch. Payments cannot be made with the iPhone 5, 5c or 5s alone.

Upon successfully verifying certain information related to the debit card, your account will be approved and you may begin using Apple Pay.

Look for the “Buy with Apple Pay” or “Apple Pay” button at checkout within the merchant apps.

Keep in mind that not all merchants have signed up to support Apple Pay. As a result, you should continue to carry your physical cards to use at merchants where Apple Pay is not available. Click here for a list of participating merchants.

Q. How do I pay using my cards on the Apple Watch?

A. Once you’ve added your debit or credit card, paying in stores is simple. Double click the side button and hold the face of your Apple Watch to the merchant’s card reader. A slight vibration and a tone will confirm your payment information has been sent.

The first card you enter is your default payment card, but you can always switch it in the Apple Watch app. If you want to switch cards when you’re paying, after double-clicking the side button, just swipe to browse through your cards and hold the display of the Apple Watch near the reader to pay.

Q. How do I make my Citizens Bank Debit Mastercard or credit card the default card in Apple Pay?

On an Apple Watch, open the Apple Watch app and tap “Default Card”, and then tap the debit or credit card you would like to select as your default card.

Q. How safe and secure are payments made through Apple Pay?

A. Apple Pay is secure. Your card numbers are not stored in the phone nor used to make payments. Instead of using your card number when you add your card, a unique number is assigned. And your cards in Apple Pay are protected by Touch ID™ and/or your device pass code. Since you don’t have to show your debit and credit cards, your private account information is protected.

When you make payments with Apple Pay and your debit and credit cards:

  • Your full card number is not shown to the merchant. When you add your cards to Apple Pay, your cards are assigned a unique device account number which is different than your debit and credit card numbers. You can always find this device account number and the last four digits of your card numbers in the Wallet & Apple Pay section under your device’s Settings. When you make a purchase through Apple Pay you will see the last four digits of your device account number printed on the receipt.

Q. What is a Device Account Number and how is it different from my Citizens Bank Debit Mastercard and credit card number?

A. For your security, when you add your card to Apple Pay, a Device Account Number is created for each card on that device. It is separate and unique to your device and different from your card account number. Your Device Account Number is used to make purchases with your card using Apple Pay. If you add the card to multiple devices, each device will have a separate Device Account Number.

Q. Does Apple Pay show my Citizens Bank Debit Mastercard and credit card transactions?

A. Apple Pay displays recent debit and credit card purchases you made within the Wallet on your iPhone, but it won't display all your purchase details.

Q. How will Apple Pay purchases appear on my monthly statement?

A. You will see all Apple Pay purchases made with your Citizens Bank Debit Mastercard(s) and credit cards listed on your statement the same way as charges made with your physical cards.

Q. Why is my transaction amount sometimes reported differently in Apple Pay?

A. Occasionally only initial authorization amounts will be passed to Apple Pay, which might be different from the final transaction amount. As a result, you might see different transaction amounts from locations such as restaurants, gas service stations, hotels, and car rental companies. Always refer to your account statement for final transaction details.

Q. How do I return an item I bought using Apple Pay in a store?

A. The cashier can use the Device Account Number to find the purchase and process the return, just like they would with a traditional card payment. To see the last four digits of the Device Account Number, tap the card and tap ⓘ.

If the cashier needs your card details to process the return, you can follow the same steps for making a payment. Hold the Apple Pay device you used to make the payment near the reader, select the card you used to make the original payment, and authorize the return.

If you locate your device after your card was disabled by us, you will need to add your card back to Apple Pay. For iPhone or iPad, you can go to the Find My iPhone app to temporarily suspend or permanently remove the ability to make payment transactions from your device, even if your device is offline.
