I’m not known for my precision and recently had to return something which I had proudly, but as it turns out incorrectly, measured for.
I had my receipt and as anticipated, the retailer asked for the same card for which the item had been purchased. This flummoxed me as the last 4 digits shown on the receipt weren’t any that I recognised.
I don’t know about you, but these days I often carry just my phone and one card rather than my whole purse. I went home and checked through all my cards. None of them matched the last 4 digits shown on my receipt. Yet, there was the transaction showing up in our current account. I went home and did some research.
It turns out that when you use Apple Pay, the last 4 digits shown on the receipt is a device number. To find this, open Wallet and tap on the card you want to check. Then tap on the “i” below to see the device number.
On returning to the shop, I had to show the assistant the device number and it went through no problem.
