    Today couldn't use the apple pay at walgreens, later i realized my cellular data was off.

    I have a limited data package so I need to turn off my cellular data quite often within a work day, I had no idea that it would affect the apple pay process. :confused:

    What does apple pay need internet connection for?

    It doesn't need a data connection. It just needs to connect to the POS terminal in the store via NFC.
