Apple Pay allows users to change cards or rearrange card priority.
Apple also has Apple Cash to send and receive money from friends and family in order to make purchases.
In the Apple Wallet users can choose a preferred card, drag and bring it to the front of the stack to select.
Capitec continues to migrate into the future of digital wallets.
Most South African banks now support digital wallets that allow users to make transactions by tapping their smartphone or smartwatch at a contactless enabled pay point.

Users only need to link their cards to their digital wallets to make payments.
