Frequently Asked Questions

How do I return an item purchased with Apple Pay in stores?

You take the item(s) back to the retailer as normal. Some retailers will be able to offer refunds back to the device from which the original payment was made, while others may have to refund the plastic card.

If the retailer is able to refund the device used to make the original purchase, you:

  1. Select the card you want to be refunded
  2. Hold the iPhone above or near the contactless reader and authorise the refund using Touch ID, Face ID or the device passcode; or
  3. Hold the Apple Watch display up to the contactless reader and double-click the side button to authorise the refund

You may need to provide the last four digits of your Device Account Number to the retailer. This can be found by opening the Wallet app on your iPhone, tap the card and tap the Apple Pay Wallet Icon symbol and then scroll down to find Device Account Number.
