You can start using Apple Pay as soon as you add your first credit or debit card to Passbook.
To add a credit or debit card, on your phone, open Passbook and tap plus in the upper-right corner.
If you have a credit or debit card from a participating bank on file with iTunes, you'll be asked to add it. You can also choose to add a different card using the iSight camera or by entering your card information manually. Then your bank will decide whether to approve adding your card to Apple Pay. They might ask you to provide more information to complete the verification process.
To add a credit or debit card on iPad Air 2 or iPad mini 3, go to Settings > Passbook & Apple Pay, tap Add Credit or Debit Card, and then follow the same steps for iPhone above.

The cashier can use the Device Account Number to find the purchase and process the return, just like they would with a traditional credit or debit card payment. To see the last four or five digits of the Device Account Number for your iPhone or iPad, go to Passbook, tap the card, and tap info. For your Apple Watch, open the Apple Watch app on iPhone, tap My Watch > Passbook & Apple Pay. Tap your card to select it and see the Device Account Number. Apple Pay activity is also included on your credit and debit card statements.

Depending on the return and refund policies of the store, it may take up to several days for the return transaction to appear on your credit or debit card statement.
Your card information is not stored on your mobile device or on Apple’s server. As your card number and security code are not used in any financial transaction, the information is not available for hackers to access.
Apple Pay uses a 16-digit token in place of your debit or credit card number specifically for your device along with a dynamic security code unique to each transaction. Instead of using a PIN or signature to authorize the transaction, Apple Pay uses Touch ID and your fingerprint on the iPhone 6 home button. If your card is ever lost or stolen, your token can be reassigned to a new card.
If your mobile device is ever lost or stolen, you can use the "Find My iPhone" feature to quickly set your device in "Lost Mode," disabling purchasing ability and the ability to get into the phone without a PIN entry. You can also wipe all information from your iPhone completely.
When you suspend or remove your cards in Wallet, your device-specific Device Account Number is suspended or removed. You can continue to use your plastic credit or debit card.
