    Anyone else get this error?

    Could Not Set Up Apple Pay
    An error occurred while setting up Apple Pay
    OK

    All I can do is click OK and try again. The same error pops up whether I try to add a credit card within Settings or within Passbook.

    Is there a fix for this?

    Do you have Touch ID enabled AND an iPhone 6 ?

    Ya, I have that enabled. Everything should work. Just got off the phone with Apple Care, and they're stumped too. They asked me to reset my settings, so I'm doing that now.

    Resetting settings did not work :(

    They're escalating right now. I really wanted to test this today for lunch lol

    Oh well, hopefully it'll get sorted soon.

    Is the Apple ID you use for iCloud also the same as for iTunes? I had a separate iCloud account from my iTunes account and I was getting the same error. I tried on the iTunes account and I was able to get through.

    Maybe it's related, but ultimately they had me sign out of iCloud (which takes a few minutes since it has to remove content from the phone) and then sign back in.

    That did the trick! I ended up eating McDonald's for lunch. Paying with the phone is so easy :D

    I really f#cking hate that the solution to virtually every "connectivity" problem with iOS is to sign out of iCloud—which forces me to have to re-download everything back to my phone (I apparently have a lot more than most people, because it can take hours or days for photos to re-sync).
