Enjoy the benefits of your MBNA credit card using Apple Pay™ - the easy, secure and private way to pay on the high street, in apps and on the web.

Set up your card in the Wallet app on a compatible iPhone and use it anywhere Apple Pay is accepted.

We might occasionally limit the value or number of payments you can make using Apple Pay and ask you to use your card instead. This is just to make sure it’s you making the transaction.
Apple Pay transactions will appear online and on your monthly statements as normal. Within the Wallet app you’ll also be able to view the most recent transactions made using each card you’ve added to your mobile device. If you used Apple Pay to make a purchase and you’d like to return an item, use the same payment method to receive a refund in store.
Is Apple Pay secure?
When you make a purchase, Apple Pay uses a device-specific number and a unique
transaction code. Your full card number is never stored on your device or on Apple
servers, and it can’t be shared with merchants. Apple Pay doesn’t keep transaction
information that can be tied back to you, meaning all purchases are private.1
Because you don’t have to present a physical card when you pay, your name, card number and security code are never visible to the cashier.
The card image shown in your Wallet may not be the same as your physical card, so if you’ve added multiple cards, make sure you know which is which.
Each card in your Wallet will display the last four digits of both your Device Account Number and your actual card number so you can tell them apart.
Things to consider
- If you make card purchases, you will pay interest on these transactions, unless you pay your statement balance in full, every month or if you have a retail promotional interest rate of 0% on your account.
- If you’ve got a cash back credit card with MBNA, you’ll earn cash back at your usual rate on Apple Pay transactions.
- Standard network charges may apply. Transactions are subject to your existing MBNA credit card terms and conditions.
