apple pay question

I have a new iPhone 7 plus that I received today that is replacing my iPhone 6 plus. I had never setup the Apple Pay on my 6 because the main iCloud I have is one through work, keeps all my contacts, safari and everything else synced. But my personal iCloud is different and use it for Apps, iTunes, etc. Now I thought I would start fresh rather then restore from a backup. I went through and set up my personal iCloud first and then Apple Pay for both debit and credit cards. Worked great, nice and easy. Then I thought I could log out of iCloud and into iCloud for work and keep the apple pay. Seems that is not the case.

Is there a way to have Apple Pay on a different iCloud address then the one setup under iCloud in settings? If not and I add my visa and debit with my work iCloud logged in, does anyone else have access to my visa and debit on computers using the same iCloud account? Or does it stay on the phone itself only?

Work is a small family (my family) print shop.

Apple Pay, in and of itself, doesn't require iCloud to function. You could turn off the iCloud Wallet sync if you don't want it linked to your work stuff. There isn't a way to sync it with a 2nd iCloud account that isn't logged in system-wide though.

How does Apple Pay work? Does the machine have to have the Apple Pay logo? Because I have yet to see any besides Starbucks that has it. I've seen plenty of the 'tap' to pay ones though.. do they work?

Apple Pay will work anywhere that supports tap payments, unless the retailer has specifically disabled the tap support on the system.

Oh, well that's good to know! I thought the machine had to actually show it accepted Apple Pay, since just about everywhere that talks about Apple Pay shows that little logo. Thanks, I'm going to start using it.

Well I did contact Apple about it and they eased my mind. Even if someone else on a computer with the same iCloud account as mine tried to buy something using my Apple Pay they would need my phone and fingerprint to do it to approve the payment. I am not super scared that anyone at work would do something like it, we are a small shop of 9 people, but it is just peace of mind.
