Apple Pay

Apple Pay is a mobile payment and digital wallet service by Apple Inc. that lets users make payments using the iPhone 6, 6 Plus, iPhone SE, and later, Apple Watch-compatible devices (iPhone 5 and later models), iPad Air 2, iPad Pro and iPad Mini 3 and later.

Apple Pay works with Stripe payment system. This means that in order to receive payments via Apple Pay, you need to have Stripe account. All payments within the app that are made with Apple Pay will be processed by Stripe and will be shown among your orders.

How to set up Apple Pay

1. Create a Stripe account and setup Stripe payment method in your store control panel, under Settings → Payment. Please refer to this article for instructions on settings up Stripe in your store: Stripe
You do not necessarily have to enable it and make it visible to your customers unless you use Stripe to get payments in your online store. 

2. Connect your Stripe account to your future mobile app. To do this you should invite our developer to your Stripe account. Here is the detailed instruction how to do this:

Pay in the online store

If you do not have Apple Pay connected to your ShopApp, your customers will be able to pay for the orders in your store. Once the customers click "Buy" button they will be redirected to the mobile version of your store. There they will be able to pay for the order using the payment options available in your store.
