Apple Pay in double trouble: iPhone 6 payment service has charged some users twice for every transaction they made

It was launched as an alternative the wallet, enabling iPhone 6 users to tap their phone to pay for items.

But some Apple Pay users in the US have been double-charged for purchases.

The Californian tech giant has admitted there is a problem with its mobile payment system, but says it only affects ‘a very small number’ of Apple Pay users and is working to refund all faulty transactions.

Apple Pay launched this week. It stores Visa, MasterCard and American Express credit card information and works with the iPhone 6's touch ID fingerprint recognition system so users can touch their phone on a contactless reader to pay for goods. It supports credit and debit cards from the three major payment networks - American Express, MasterCard and Visa - issued by the top US banks.



However, there has been an early glitch and it affects Apple Pay users who rely on Bank of America, CNN reported.

A number of these bank customers discovered their bank statement showed they have been making double payments for goods purchased with Apple Pay. These customers include CNN reporter Samuel Burke who got in touch with the bank, which blamed Apple’s system for the glitch.

Mr Burke wrote: ‘I called up Bank of America and they assured me it was a problem on Apple Pay's end.
‘That seemed feasible, because all of the purchases I made without Apple Pay were only charged one time.’

But Apple’s customer service department passed him back to Bank of America, because the company doesn’t keep records of names linked to transactions.

Upon launch, Apple Pay’s focus on security and privacy was a big selling point, but Mr Burke said the situation of being passed between the two corporations was ‘every consumer’s worst nightmare’.

After talks, Bank of America agreed to refund his double payments. Around 1,000 people are thought to have been affected in total.

I've heard Apple Pay hasn't gone down too well in America with some retailers blocking it. Apple seems to have alot of issues lately with software etc. I've just also heard that the gold edition of Apple Smartwatch is going to be upto €5,000 😲 stupid price you can get a Rolex cheaper

I would not be surprised upon learning that some users are ready to pay more than 5,000 $ for the watch. However, I don`t think that the company will ever make the price that high: they are mostly targeting at the youth as their main customers. I would be Golden Apple Watch for myself, if it cost no more than 400-500 $: the design is very stylish.
