Requesting and receiving money on your iPhone has been a possibility for a long time; apps like Facebook, Venmo, Paypal, and even Snapchat have all helped iPhone owners with these transactions. Apple Pay makes this even easier for iPhone users—you can quickly and securely request and receive payments right from the Messages app on your iPhone, as long as the person you're exchanging money with also has Apple Pay. No need to exit a text thread and open an app anymore! But what if you make a payment to the wrong person, or what if your payment isn't accepted? How do you go about canceling a payment you've made with Apple Pay Cash through your Messages app?

Apple announced the Apple Business Chat platform at WWDC 2017 and iOS 11.3 has finally introduced us to the program. The Business Chat platform allows iPhone users to connect with companies through iMessages, or from the businesses' app or website, rather than talking on the phone. Apple is rolling out Business Chat slowly; it's only available as a beta version right now, with a limited number of partner companies.

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.
