    Using Touch ID is basically flawless to unlock my iPhone and purchase things in the App Store but when it comes down to paying with my iPhone it keeps rejecting my print. And it's not due to my thumbs being greasy and it becomes so tedious every single use until it makes me use my passcode instead. ...

    Try removing/readding your finger prints regardless if unlock works fine.

    Apple pay works for me every single time I use it.

    It's been flawless for me all two of the times I've used it (more vendors please!!).

    Combination of :apple: Pay and Touch ID works great for me. Always beep and unlock with fingerprint.
    Just need more places with NFC terminal that would accept it.

    I found I held my phone differently when just unlocking it versus reaching out to the NFC terminal. My thumb is at a different angle. Re-register your apple pay finger mimicking this action. Worked for me

    Try cleaning your phone, washing your hands, and re registering your finger print.

    I have to agree. Touch ID works so fast and accurately when unlocking, it does it nearly every time I press the home button. However, Pay takes 2-3 seconds to register my print. Half the time I get an error, because I slightly move the phone away from the reader when scanning my print.
