With the access of Apple Pay in Kuwait, iPhone users will now be able to avail of multiple benefits, including:

  • Organized availability of all the payment options, even if the user has multiple bank accounts
  • Payments with Apple Pay don’t require an internet connection
  • Apple Pay offers heightened security when it comes to making these cashless payments
  • It has been in operation for nine years, so security and reliability are never a question

However, while Apple Pay has been functional across the world, it is a fairly new feature in Kuwait. So, being confused about setting up Apple Pay and using it in Kuwait can be challenging.

Setting up an Apple Pay in Kuwait

Since Apple Pay is in its preliminary stage of rollout in Kuwait, your first step is to set up the whole thing first.

Here’s what you need to set up your Apple Pay in Kuwait:

  • A compatible Apple device
  • A support bank debit or credit card
  • An iOS device that’s signed in with Apple ID

Once you have these sorted, follow the steps to set up your debit or credit card:

  • Install the Wallet app to your iPhone
  • Open the app and tap on the “Add button +”
  • Tap on Debit or Credit card from there
  • Tap on Continue
  • Follow the on-screen instructions to add your card and verify it
  • You have to verify the card with the bank that has issued you the card

If you have an iWatch that’s paired with your iPhone or iPad, you can set up Apple Pay on that device too. Once you have set up and added the debit or credit card to your Apple Pay account, you can start paying via Apple Pay in Kuwait.
