With MacOS Sierra, Apple has finally brought its mobile payment and digital wallet service to Mac, allowing users to make purchases on the web using Safari. Apple Pay for Macs requires an iPhone equipped with Touch ID and support for Apple Pay to authenticate payments made on the webpage.
However, Apple Pay is now limited to some retailers around the globe, so make sure that your merchants adopt Apple Pay. In this tutorial, we will show you how to use Apple Pay on Mac, so you can make purchases without even leaving your room.
