Apple Pay

Pay safer and faster using Apple Pay
Adding your card to Apple Pay is simple in the Arion App.

Pay with Apple Pay

Apple Pay is the easier, safer way to pay in stores, in apps, and on the web with your iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, and Mac.* You can quickly check out using the devices you carry every day. Apple Pay is also the safer and faster way to pay online and in apps because you no longer have to create an account or fill out lengthy forms.

Simple and secure way to pay

When you make a purchase, Apple Pay uses a device-specific number and a unique transaction code. Your full card number is never stored on your device or on Apple servers, and it can’t be shared with merchants. Apple Pay doesn’t keep transaction information that can be tied back to you, ensuring all purchases are private.

Pay faster and more securely with Apple Pay and enjoy all the rewards and benefits of your Arion Bank card with Apple Pay.
