Apple Pay Bingo Sites

Apple Pay has revolutionised the way that we pay both online and in the real world: now this technology has started to filter down to bingo sites. Though there aren’t many Apple Pay Bingo Sites yet, one network in particular has latched on to this new, mobile-driven technology. Netboost sites, which run on Dragonfish software, accept Apple Pay when making a deposit on your iPhone, iPad, or iMac. In this article we’ll explain at which bingo sites and on which devices, you are eligible to use Apple Pay. We’ll also go into depth about the pros and cons, including safety and security concerns, as well as ease of use and its time saving potential. It is now 2019, and Apple Pay is helping bingo sites move firmly into the future!

History

Apple Pay had been in development for some time. In 2013, negotiations began with card companies like American Express, Visa and Mastercard as well as with certain banks around the world. Much of this planning and dealing was done in secret. Finally, the launch of Apple Pay was announced in 2014, a year later. This was at the same time as the launch of the iPhone 6. In the announcement, Apple focused on the strength of the security of the Apple Pay method. Tim Cook, the CEO, pointed out that consumers had lost faith in the classic, plastic card. In his estimation, people no longer trusted the reliance on the magnetic strip and the PIN code. In July 2015, the method was finally launched in the United Kingdom. Although there was a fairly gradual catching-on process, the payment method is now widely used in person and on online. Bingo sites, however, seem to be one of the final frontiers before it takes off completely.

How to Set Up Apple Pay

In essence, Apple Pay means that you can make a payment with your mobile phone. Theoretically, you should never have to use your plastic card again. So how do you go about setting it up? First, you’ve got to make sure that you have an iPhone or equivalent Apple product that is sufficiently updated to support the Apple Pay service. The basics are:
  • You need an iPhone 6 or later, iPad Air 2 or later, or any Apple Watch product.
  • Users must have iOS 8.1 or later for Apple Pay to function.
  • All MacBook and MacBook Air models with Touch ID also accept it.
Once you have ticked the requisite boxes, you can start to set up your Apple Pay. If you have one of these models, then you will have already set up your fingerprint. Then, you’ll need to choose one of your bank cards that you want for your Apple Pay. When setting it up, it will often ask you to take a photo of your card. This will speed up the inputting process. After that, you may be asked to enter some further details like your address and the 3 digit number on the back of your card. Your device will then contact your bank to confirm all your details. You will probably receive a code via text, which you will then have to enter to confirm your account. This process takes no longer than a couple of minutes. Once the bank card has been confirmed, it is added to your phone’s wallet. You can now use your Apple Pay.

How to Use Apple Pay

At a physical shop, you simply need to look out for anywhere that accepts contactless payments. Then , when making a payment, hold your phone to the reader with your fingerprint held to the Touch ID pad. However, for making an online bingo deposit, you’ll usually have to be on your iPhone. Once you have chosen Apple Pay as your method of choice, your device will recognise that your card is stored in the system. Your phone will then show a message confirming the amount and how to make your payment via Apple Pay. You will be asked to place your fingerprint on the Touch ID pad, as you would be in a shop, and this will execute the payment.

Pros

  • Safe & Secure – Only you have your fingerprints! This makes Apple Pay one of the most safe payment methods around. You are strongly protected from any fraudulent goings on.
  • Easy – Because all the details are stored in your mobile phone, all you have to do is verify it’s you when making a deposit at an online bingo site. Usually that means you’ll be prompted for your fingerprint and your phone will so the rest. Your deposit will be instant and you can get on with your bingo playing! No unnecessary hassle.

Cons

  • Some people may find it a bit of a hassle to first set up a card onto your phone. But it really is worth it. Once it’s done, you don’t have to worry about it again until the card expires.
  • The primary con of Apple Pay when it comes to online bingo is that not many sites offer it as a deposit option. Therefore, your choices for sites that you can sign up to will be very limited.

The Future of Apple Pay Bingo Sites

We hope that in the future, more bingo sites will adopt this modern, safe, and easy to use payment method. For now, Apple Pay fans, feast on the options that we at WDW have provided you with here.
