Paystack has announced the inclusion of a new payment channel that lets users accept international payments promptly and securely from millions of Apple Pay users on its platform — Pay with Apple Pay.

Interestingly, Paystack is the first payment gateway to support Apple Pay in Nigeria.

Apple Pay is a mobile payment and digital wallet service by Apple. It enables seamless payments that allow customers to authorise payments with Touch ID or Face ID, instead of manually filling long payment forms.

The new integration allows Nigerian businesses to access millions of Apple Pay users in the over 60 countries where Apple Pay is supported, including the USA, UK, and Canada.

The exciting features

The feature includes improved success rates for international transactions, customers will be able to checkout in seconds and automatically improve business’ reach, collecting payments via a fast, easy, and secure method that’s native to millions of Apple users across the world. All at no extra cost to you or your customers.

Here’s how Pay with Apple Pay works

  • Customers who have Apple Pay enabled on their Apple devices can automatically see the option to checkout using Apple Pay, and then complete the transaction using Touch ID, or Face ID

The Pay with Apple Pay feature is currently available to just Nigerian-based Paystack merchants.

How merchants can leverage the feature

  • Since only international customers can pay with Apple Pay, as a merchant, you will need to confirm that you’ve enabled international transactions for your business 

  • On the same page, ensure that the Apple Pay box is checked to enable the payment channel

  • If you only accept payments via Paystack Commerce tools, such as Paystack Storefronts, and Invoices, you don’t need to do anything else — you’re all set

  • If you accept payments via a custom Paystack integration on your website or your mobile app, you’ll need to register your domain, as per Apple’s rules

Once these steps are carried out, you’ll be able to accept international payments via Apple Pay.
