Apple Pay on the Web

Support Apple Pay on your website with JavaScript-based APIs.

Overview

Safari supports two JavaScript APIs that let you accept Apple Pay payments from customers on your website: Apple Pay JS, and the W3C Payment Request API. The Apple Pay JS API is analogous to the PassKit framework, used for Apple Pay in apps. The Payment Request API is a W3C candidate API.

Apple Pay is available on all iOS devices with a Secure Element—an industry-standard, certified chip designed to store payment information safely. On macOS, users must have an Apple Pay-capable iPhone or Apple Watch to authorize the payment, or a MacBook Pro with Touch ID.
