    ive got an iPhone 5s running the current 8.1 update. I still can't add cards to Passbook to use for Apple Pay and I don't have the Passbook choice under Settings

    Only thing I think could be a problem is I have a different iCloud account than my iTunes account ID. I have a @icloud account I made but I still use a @gmail for my iTunes purchases. Any help would be appreciated, I'll check back in the morning.

    From what I understand, Apple Pay is ONLY for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

    Bummer. Thought it would work only with safari purchases with Touch ID on 5s even though I couldn't use it in store.

    iPhone 5s doesn't have the Secure Element chip that stores the token.

    The new iPad Air 2 has it, but not NFC - which is why it can do Apple Pay for online transactions but not contactless in-store.

    How does that explain that the 5s is supposed to work with the apple watch's apple pay/nfc ability?

    It will work. Apple Watch has NFC with the secure element, and tethers with the 5s for data.
