Apple Pay is undoubtedly a payment system that continues to spread like wildfire across our country because of how easy it is to make a card payment thanks to it. It is no longer necessary at all to have to take out your wallet to make the payment at a specific establishment, as you can simply remove the iPhone or Apple Watch to do it by bringing it closer to the dataphone. BBVA is one of the largest entities in the country that is compatible with this payment system, facilitating the inclusion of the debit or credit card with this payment system from its own app.

To be able to link our bank card with Apple Pay, it is normal to do it through the native Wallet application, but BBVA tries to make the task easier for us being able to do it from your own application . The steps to follow are extremely simple and in this article we tell you how you can do it.
