Apple Pay is a convenient way to make purchases in stores, on the web, and within apps without using your actual credit card or credit card number. It's a major help when you're out shopping and realize you've forgotten your credit card. Of course, the store you're shopping at has to accept Apple Pay, but if it does, it can save you from having to rush home to grab your credit card — or from forgoing the purchases altogether.
