Direct integration of Apple Pay

Integrating Apple Pay in your own checkout allows you to add the “Checkout with Pay” button as you deem fit. Apple provides guidelines on how and where you should add the Apple Pay buttons.

Beside payments information, Apple Pay allows you to get the billing and shipping addresses from the shopper too. This enables a fast and frictionless checkout.

With the direct integration, you are responsible for implementing Apple’s JS APIs. Mollie will provide API endpoints needed by the JS APIs and the ability to send the encrypted Apple Pay Payment Token when creating a payment.

You do not need to join the Apple Developer Program for this integration.

Follow these steps to offer Apple Pay in your own checkout:

Prepare your server

Your checkout must be served over HTTPS. Up to date TLS ciphers are required. For more information, see Apple’s documentation on setting up your server.

Apple Pay requires you to place a domain validation file on the domain you want to use the Apple Pay JS APIs on. The presence and validity of this file will be validated by Apple.

Download the domain validation file and place it on your server at https://[domain]/.well-known/apple-developer-merchantid-domain-association.

Check if Apple Pay is available on the device

Check if Apple Pay is available on the device using the canMakePayments method.

If Apple Pay is available on the device, you should display the Apple Pay Buttons.

Create an Apple Pay Session

When the shopper taps or clicks the Apple Pay Button, you should create an Apple Pay Session. This specifies all the information you want to display to the shopper and details on the payment.

When constructing the ApplePayPaymentRequest, you should set the supportedNetworks to ["amex", "maestro", "masterCard", "visa", "vPay"].

Providing merchant validation

The merchant validation proves (to Apple) that a validated merchant is calling the Apple Pay Javascript APIs. To perform the validation, your server should make an API call to Mollie and pass the response to the Apple Pay Session object.

Please see Apple’s documentation on providing merchant validation for details.

Instead of using Apple’s API, you must use a dedicated endpoint in the Mollie API.

Send the Apple Pay Payment Token to Mollie

Once the shopper has authorized the payment, you will receive the Apple Pay Payment object. You must then encode the object’s token property to JSON and add the JSON as the applePayPaymentToken parameter when invoking the Create Payment API.
