More about Apple Pay service

Apple Pay is a mobile payment and digital wallet service by Apple Inc. that allows users to make payments in person, in iOS apps, and on the web using Safari. It is supported on the iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, and Mac. It is not available on any client device that is not made and sold by Apple. It digitizes and can replace a credit or debit card chip and PIN transaction at a contactless-capable point-of-sale terminal. It does not require Apple Pay-specific contactless payment terminals; it can work with any merchant that accepts contactless payments. It adds two-factor authentication via Touch ID, Face ID, PIN, or passcode. Devices wirelessly communicate with point of sale systems using near field communication, with an embedded secure element to securely store payment data and perform cryptographic functions, and Apple's Touch ID and Face ID for biometric authentication.

Love how @kroger doesn't take Apple pay and their stupid Kroger pay app is down so I had to leave the grocery store without all of the shit I just wasted time gathering. Kroger, never not making grocery shopping absolute hell.
