How to Change Your Payment Preference for Apple Pay Cash on iPhone

Apple Pay Cash doesn't need any extra app downloads or new accounts to work; all you have to do is have Apple Pay set up in Settings. Once Apple Pay is set up, Apple Pay Cash will allow you to recieve payments quickly and conveniently through your Messages app. Not everyone will want those payments to be recieved automatically, though.  Some people may want to approve each payment to help them keep track of cash flow themselves, and there is a setting in Apple Pay Cash that allows for manual rather than automatic payments. Let's get started learning how to change your Apple Pay settings from automatic to manual receipt of payments. Please note that there is no Apple Pay Cash for Android; only iMessage users can send and receive Apple Pay Cash.
