Have Questions?

Apple Pay is a convenient way to pay with your eligible PNC debit and credit cards that makes reaching for your wallet a thing of the past. With Apple Pay you can simplify the way you shop by adding your eligible PNC credit and debit cards to the Wallet app on your eligible iPhone, iPad, Mac, or Apple Watch. Now you can easily check out at many of your favorite retailers with just the verification of your face or finger.

To start using Apple Pay, make sure your eligible device is running iOS 8.1 or higher. Once your device's software is up to date the Wallet app will appear on your home screen. Simply open the Wallet app and follow the on-screen instructions to add your PNC card and make your first payment.


Simplified Shopping

  • By adding your card to Apple Pay, there’s no need to reach for your wallet when making purchases in-store. Apple Pay also lets you make purchases quickly and easily within many of your favorite mobile apps that include the new feature.
  • Best of all, with Apple Pay you still get all the rewards, benefits and protection your eligible PNC debit or credit card already provides.
  • When you make a purchase using Apple Pay, all transactions are monitored by the same PNC security & privacy that protects your eligble PNC credit and debit cards.
  • Credit or debit card numbers are not stored on your device and never shared with the merchant.



Get Started Now

  • It’s easy to add your eligible PNC debit and credit cards to Apple Pay. Simply open the Wallet app on your eligible iPhone, iPad or Mac to get started.
  • Apple Watch users can add cards to Apple Pay by opening the Apple Watch app on their eligible iPhone.
  • If you already have a eligible PNC debit or credit card on file with Apple iTunes®, you can quickly import it into Apple Pay by entering the security code on the back of your card.
  • To add an eligible PNC debit or credit card that is not in iTunes, enter your card information manually or hold your eligible iPhone over the card and use the device camera to capture it automatically. Apple Pay will perform a simple validation with PNC before the card is ready to use.
