2. Tap on the little blue “+” icon on the top right hand corner.
3. Follow the on-screen prompts to add your card. Your card will be verified with your bank before you can move forward. This step won’t take that long. There is a possibility that your bank might ask for further verifications from you in order to start using Apple Pay.
