Once you enter in your device’s password you will be able to add a credit card by pressing on Add Credit Card.
If you happen to see credit cards already listed here and are not sure why they are there, that indicates you were using i Cloud Keychain which stores any credit card information you have entered in and syncs across your i OS devices and your Mac.
Fast forward a couple of months, I made the big mistake of thinking the risk was gone, giving Amazon my fresh credit card and now new address details. This time I had the pleasure of dealing with a support agent who seemed 100% incapable of realizing that someone was impersonating me.
I had trouble keeping my composure when he told me I should change my password to prevent people impersonating me.
Now in i OS 8, you can use the device’s camera to scan and enter credit card information.
To add your credit card for purchases open up Settings and tap on Safari. Here you will notice that by default that Names and Passwords, and Credit Cards is turned on by default. When you press on Saved Credit Cards, it requires you to enter your devices’s password to continue.
I again contact Amazon to reiterate how important it is that they keep my account secure, and not give out my details to anyone with a name and address.
They promise they’re putting a note on my account, and it’ll never happen again.
Eventually I had to basically tell him that it was “me” that contacted support and I wanted “my” transcript, which he provided.
Guess I should count my blessings they didn’t give the last digits of my credit card.
Yesterday (September 7) My account is having again the same problem.
As a security conscious user who follows the best practices like: using unique passwords, 2FA, only using a secure computer and being able to spot phishing attacks from a mile away, I would have thought my accounts and details would be be pretty safe? Because when someone has gone after me, it all goes for nothing.
There is a theory: Reading some forums about it, most of these mistakes happen when your IP is outside of USA, meaning that even though you use a U. Paypal account or credit card, if you are not in the same country, you will have this error. It is an error from i Tunes Store and not from your bank account or Pay Pal. I recommend to you to read the following Apple Support forums, maybe a solution will appear there, but until now there is none: As you can see it is not an isolated error and it is happening to several customers.
