Updating the contact and billing information

Use the following instructions, to update your shipping and billing information for all your cards used on Apple Pay.

When a rewards card or a store card is added to your Wallet, the system might ask you if you want to select a card automatically. To enable/disable Automatic Selection, do this:

  1. Launch the app Wallet.
  2. Tap a rewards or a store card.
  3. Tap the icon Information, and turn the Automatic Selection option on/off.

How to get help in a case your device was stolen or lost

For using Apple Pay, each purchase paid with any of your debit, credit and prepaid cards needs to be authorized with Touch ID, Face ID or your personal passcode. For Apple Watch, when Wrist Detection is turned on, you should enter your personal passcode each time you put the Apple Watch on. All these actions are essential to prevent everyone else from misusing your Mac, iPad, iPhone or Apple Watch.

Open the account page for your Apple ID, to fully remove or suspend the ability of payment with your lost or stolen device with the help of Apple Pay. Alternatively, you can use the app Find My iPhone. Sign in to the account page of your Apple ID, and choose your device. In the information window that shows up, choose the Apple Pay section. There click the option Remove all or Remove. After, your cards or card will be removed or suspended from Apple Pay even in a case when the lost or stolen device is turned off or isn’t connected to a Wi-Fi or cellular network.

Another option to remove or suspend your card/cards from Apple Pay is to contact your issuer.
