I talked to Apple Support on the phone. They directed me to visit the url:
Under "Account Settings", click "Shipping and billing".
This brings you to a much older Apple website, still styled with aqua controls!

No, Apple Pay does not require an internet connection. Apple Pay uses NFC technology; it does not use Wi-Fi or cellular technology.
According to CNet, Apple Pay will work even if you put your iPhone 6 into Airplane Mode. Airplane Mode disables both the Wi-Fi and cellular internet.
The answer is yes and no.
Internet connectivity is required for any setup or maintenance of your cards. Once a card has been successfully added to the device, the phone can be disconnected for payments, which is a local interaction between the device and the point of sale terminal.

No, Apple Pay can be used an unlimited number of times while offline since it generates payment information locally as opposed to some other mobile payments like HCE which only allow a limited number of payments in-between getting an internet connection.

It's called card clash & is a very real issue.
If you carry more than one NFC device in the same container, you don't know which one is going to pay. Most payment devices I've seen in London, UK will detect 'more than one card' & refuse to proceed until you offer up a single card, but you don't know if that will be true for all payment devices. ...
The real answer is because Apple Pay stores the card info locally on your phone/watch. That's why when you get a new device, you need to re-sync and re-setup all your cards.
In contrast, iCloud subscription is billed directly from Apple's servers with whatever payment method they have on file. They don't have access to the card in your Apple Pay which is ...
While it may seem natural to select Apple Pay as your payment method for iCloud, it is not possible to do so.
Apple Pay is meant to be a payment solution for single transactions.
iCloud storage upgrades are reoccurring payments and thus can not be used with Apple Pay.
There are some instances where Apple Pay can be used for reoccurring payments, but it ...
Only MacBook Pro with Touch ID have a ‘Wallet and Apple Pay’ preference pane, as these Macs are the only ones which have the necessary hardware support for storing cards for Apple Pay on device.
On older Macs, Apple Pay is still supported with a compatible iPhone. No configuration is available on the Mac, since the Mac delegates to the iPhone for Apple Pay.
You won’t pay any extra to use Apple Pay (unless the retailer makes a surcharge for all card payments, in which case you’ll pay that surcharge) — Apple’s cut comes from the processing fee that the retailer pays.
The cardholder name is not stored on Apple's servers when using Apple Pay.

The document is technical in nature, but describes exactly how the system works.

This is intended behavior when the device doesn’t respond to Apple Push Notifications to confirm locking and deactivation of the cards. It could be out of battery or off network or just unable to process the erasure of the cards.

Here is the best write-up I know of. In typical Ars Technica fashion, it tells you everything you could ever want to know. A must-read for the curious: http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2014/10/how-mobile-payments-really-work/
Apple does not allow developers to interact with the internal NFC chip at this moment.
Currently the only extendable Apple SDK for this type of system is Wallet (formerly PassBook). If your local transport station has an option to scan barcodes you can use third party tools to add your transportation pass barcode to Wallet.
Well, Apple has explained the Secure Enclave in various communications. How well the value of the Secure Enclave itself gets across to an end user is debatable and obviously a matter of opinion.
Most end users probably aren't really that interested, they just take it for granted that "it's all good". And Apple has achieved that for the overwhelming majority ...
Yes. Assuming the card you linked to Apple Pay allows foreign transactions.
Once setup you can use an Apple Pay-linked credit card in any country with a contactless payment terminal when they accept your credit card. Your linked card will be charged in the currency of the vendor where you use Apple Pay and you may incur foreign transaction fees on the ...

For your Apple Watch, open the Watch app on your iPhone, go to the My Watch tab, tap ...
Go to Settings app → Wallet and Apple Pay.
Turn off Apple Cash.
Go back to Settings app main screen and go to the notification about setting up Apple Pay. Click as if you’re going to set it up, and then click on set up later.
You then have to go back into "Wallet and Apple Pay" and again turn Apple Cash back off as it was turned back on.

There's no limitation on Apple Pay itself. The limitation comes from the terminal that the store uses.
If you have a terminal that supports contactless cards and nothing else the limit is £30 per purchase, £100 per day, just as for a contactless card. The limit is low to avoid someone stealing your card and going on a shopping spree. And the stupid ...
