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: You need to enter the exact domain name that your site runs on excluding http:// or https:// so if your site runs off 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 navigate to:
Platform Setup > Payment Settings
Here 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.
The below image is an example of how the Apple Pay option will appear on a payment form.
Currently Stripe only accept standard credit cards via Apple Pay so that means Visa, Mastercard and Amex depending on the issuing bank.
Note: Not all Australian or NZ banks support Apple Pay.
Eftpos cards are not supported.
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.
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.
Other payment methods
Currently, Funraisin supports several payment methods including credit card, Paypal, iDeal and now Apple Pay and more information can be viewed here. We continue to monitor adoption rates of others such as Google Pay.
If you'd like further support, please pop in a support ticket from your platform and our team will assist you.
