Simple set up. And it's secure.

Your CommBank card number isn’t stored on your device or on Apple servers. And it’s never shared with the person or merchant you’re paying.

This means your card and personal info always remains private.

Protecting your details. Every time.

Apple Pay is secure

Every Apple Pay transaction is authenticated with Face ID or Touch ID – all unique to you (for purchases over $100 you may need to enter your card PIN at the terminal).

Keeping your money safe
