How it works

    Customer chooses Apple Pay

    Turn on Apple Pay in a couple of clicks in your Paddle Dashboard. Paddle automatically presents Apple Pay as a payment method for customers paying in a supported country on a supported platform.

  2. Illustration showing an Apple Pay purchase prompt. The illustration shows the Apple Pay logo at the top, with gray blocks to indicate payment methods, followed by a confirmation prompt.

    Customer selects a card

    Customers choose a saved payment card in their Apple Wallet that they'd like to use to pay. They can check address and other details before confirming.

    Customer authenticates

    Apple Pay prompts the customer to authenticate. They can authenticate using Touch ID or Face ID on the device they're making a purchase on. If the device doesn't support Touch ID or Face ID, they're prompted to use Face ID or Touch ID on a nearby iPhone or iPad, or confirm on Apple Watch.
