Apple Pay

FastSpring supports Apple Pay as a payment method in all countries where Apple Pay is available.

Apple Pay gives buyers a secure and convenient way to make payments using their Apple devices.

FastSpring offers Apple Pay as a payment method for buyers using Safari on macOS and iOS devices and Chrome on iOS version 17 or above.

Customer Experience

Buyers making purchases on iOS, Safari, Mac, or Chrome for iOS can select Apple Pay during checkout.

Here's what the FastSpring Apple Pay experience looks like for purchases:

  1. During checkout, the buyer selects Apple Pay as their payment option.
  2. FastSpring then displays the Apple Pay payment widget, prompting buyers to authenticate using biometrics (like Touch ID or Face ID) or their device passcode.
  3. The buyer then completes checkout with Apple Pay in a separate window and FastSpring processes the transaction.
  4. After payment processes successfully, the buyer gets redirected to the store's completion page.
