After the payment is made, Apple sends your device account number and a transaction-specific dynamic security code to the originating website to confirm the payment.

Apple retains anonymised transaction data, including the approximate amount of the purchase, the approximate date and time and whether the transaction was completed successfully.

When you use Apple Pay on iPhone or the Apple Watch to complete a purchase made through Safari on Mac, the Mac and the authorization device communicate through an encrypted channel on Apple's servers.
