Where do I put the credit card info and where can I begin using it??? I bank with BBVA Compass if that makes a difference.

When Apple Pay does roll out (presumably sometime next week), you just take a picture of a credit card within the PassBook app. Then you'll be able to use Apple Pay at participating retailers using NFC.

It will be awhile for you, it isn't live yet, and your bank hasn't announced they are supporting it (according to Apple's site)

Kinda weird for Apple to launch a service on a Saturday
Theories are that it's because people will do a lot of shopping on that day. But I'm also skeptical that the 18th is in stone. Most people are saying the 18th because that's when Walgreens will start accepting Apple Pay; doesn't necessarily mean it won't launch the day before, especially since Apple is also having their iPad event on the 16th.

What's the website to see vendors and banks? I hope BBVA Compass will join.
