Apple Pay for Donations
Nonprofits based in Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States can use Apple Pay to provide a simple and secure way to accept donations from within their app and website. Similar to using Apple Pay to buy goods and services, users can donate without entering their billing, shipping, or contact details.
To accept donations with Apple Pay, your organization will need the following:
- Payment provider
- Apple Developer Program membership
- Approval to accept donations with Apple Pay
- Apple Pay implemented in your app or website
Implementing Apple Pay to accept donations is similar to implementing Apple Pay to sell goods and services within your app or website. The account configuration, implementation process, and review guidelines are the same. The only additional steps are to get your nonprofit organization approved to accept donations with Apple Pay and to use the "Donate with Apple Pay" button.
Submitting for Approval
To register your nonprofit organization for Apple Pay, visit Benevity.org. You’ll be asked to provide basic information about your organization as well as your Apple Developer Team ID, which you can find in the Membership section of your developer account. Once approved, you’ll be notified by Apple and you’ll be able to submit your app to the App Store for review or publish your website.
