Apple Pay is a simple, secure payment experience, allowing shoppers to purchase with many major credit cards (e.g. MasterCard, Visa, American Express, Discover, etc.) linked to their supported Apple devices. The shopper authorizes the payment with a single touch.
Reduced checkout friction - There's no need for the shopper to manually enter their shipping, contact, or payment information.
Enhanced security - The shopper's sensitive card data is never shared.
Simple payment authorization - The shopper authorizes the payment with just their fingerprint.
Merchants domiciled in the following countries will be able to accept Apple Pay:
- Ireland (IE)
- United Kingdom (UK)
- United States (US)
Shoppers whose issuing banks are located on this list will be eligible to purchase with Apple Pay.
If you're using one of our BuyNow pages, Apple Pay on the web is available to you out-of-the box and is enabled by default. Shoppers viewing your website in the Safari browser will be eligible to purchase with Apple Pay.
Safari must be open on an Apple Pay-enabled iPhone.
Safari must be open on a:
MacBook Pro with Touch ID, or
Mac model 2012 or later paired to a compatible iPhone/Apple Watch with Handoff.
The BuyNow page will detect if the shopper meets the device and country requirements before displaying the Apple Pay button. If the requirements are met, the Apple Pay button will be displayed.
The payment sheet opens on top of the checkout page. The shopper checks their billing, shipping, and contact information for accuracy (or they enter missing information if needed). They also select the card they wish to pay with.
The shopper authorizes the payment by placing their finger on Touch ID of their iPhone or Mac. Alternatively, the shopper double-clicks the side button of their Apple Watch.
If you're accepting donations, Apple requires that you register with Benevity before you can begin accepting Apple Pay.
You have the option to upload icons that will display on the shopper's device during payment authorization. Icons can improve the checkout experience by providing visual reassurance that the payment is going to the right place.
