How to enable Apple Pay

by Scott Dilley - CTO 30 Nov 1999

Charities using Stripe as their payment gateway are able to enable Apple Pay on all mobile payment forms allowing mobile users to quickly access their stored payment details rather than having to manually type them out each time.

Please note: the Apple Pay payment option will only show on Apple mobile devices using the Safari web browser.

Enabling Apple Pay

To enable Apple Pay you will need to login to your Stripe Dashboard and click into the Apple Pay section from within the Account section or by going to https://dashboard.stripe.com/account/apple_pay

Click the "Add new Domain" button and in the window that opens enter in the domain name(s) of the sites you wish to enable Apple Pay on. We have already uploaded the verification file to all sites so you shouldn't need to do anything other than save your changes, but if you do encounter errors please just log a support ticket and we will be able to assist.

Note that you need to enter the exact domain name that your site runs on excluding http:// or https:// so if your site runs of a sub-domain like fundraise.domain.com then you would enter this.

When this is done and has been verified by Stripe, simply login to Funraisin and go into Platform Setup > Payment Settings and you will be able to enable Apple Pay, or feel free to log a ticket and we will be able to assist. For our international charities we may need to assist with setting up your translations.

Once enabled, your site will automatically display a "Donate via Apple Pay" or "Pay via Apple Pay" button on your payment pages.

Donate with Pay

Accepted Cards

Currently Stripe only accept standard credit cards via Apple Pay so that means Visa, Mastercard and Amex depending on the issuing bank. Note that not all Australian or NZ banks support Apple Pay such as St George and Westpac.

Eftpos cards are not supported.

Pricing

No additional fees apply. The pricing for accepting payments via Apple Pay will be the same as if using a standard credit card since it is in fact a standard credit card transaction through Stripe. 

Reporting

You will be able to identify Apple Pay transactions by using the field Payment Method in your transaction and donation reports. The field will show Apple Pay, in the same way that it shows Paypal if you are using that as a payment method.

Platforms using the multi charity feature

Please note: every charity connected to the platform will need to enable the site URL in their Stripe account before Apple Pay can be used on the platform.

Adoption

The global trend is currently about 5% of all card payments are processed through Apple Pay. Learn more

Other payment methods

Currently, Funraisin supports several payment methods including credit card, Paypal, iDeal and now Apple Pay. We continue to monitor adoption rates of others such as Google Pay.
