How To Accept “Apple Pay” on Your Website?

26 October 2017

Many of you may have already heard about Apple payment solution “Apple Pay” that was launched in 2014. It is a mobile and digital wallet service that allows users having Apple devices such as iPhone 6 or later, “Apple Watch” and iPad etc. make online and in-store payments. Currently, this payment method is offered in around 25 countries including the United Arab Emirates. Thousands of retailers have already signed up to accept this type of payment.

The main advantage of this service is its ease of use and security. The details of consumers are never passed to the merchants, therefore, they will not be able to access customer names and other credit card details. Neither have they needed to worry about losing this data because it is never saved in the first place.  The identities of consumers are verified through Touch ID sensor at the point of purchase.

By offering this payment solution, Apple Pay wants to become the preferred method of payment for both online and offline users. Being seamless payment method, it removes yet another barrier for online entrepreneurs.

For current users who have Apple devices, this method can be a much better alternative to web-based payments like PayPal, omnipresent etc.  It will be wise for online entrepreneurs to seek out more details from their banks on accepting these kinds of payments. Otherwise, they may be losing customers in future.

The customer has to go through the following process to make an online payment on your website.

Step-1.  Shopper click on Apple Pay button on Checkout button

Step-2.  Apple Pay payment sheet opens on top of the checkout page. Here shopper will review all the billing/shipping details.

Step-3.  Shopper authorizes payment with their fingerprint or pressing button.

Step-4   Checkout page updates to display a confirmation page.

So how to accept Apple pay payments on your website?  You will be happy to know that it is not too much additional work as most of your online merchant account provider will be automatically integrated apple pay as payment options.

However, E-commerce retailers can incorporate “Apple Pay” on their websites as well as IoS apps easily.

  • I contacted Whitehats through their website and was immediately served by a customer service agent. I briefly explained my concern and gave my contact details. The same day in the afternoon I was contacted by an IT engineer and we scheduled a date for a visit to my apartment. Upon arrival the next day the engineer was polite, professional and confident and got the job done in an appropriate manner. I’m very satisfied with the service provided by Whitehats and plan to contact them in case of any future services. Therefore I would also recommend them for any IT related services.
