Apple Pay

Last updated: 04-Jun-2024

You can also accept payments through Apple Pay via Checkout (Hosted Payments Page - HPP).

Follow the integration steps below to process transactions via Verifone eComm API.

Initiate a wallet payment using ApplePay

Check also our API documentation.

  1. Enable ApplePay via Verifone's Hosted Checkout or via Direct API, as per the instructions from the Apple Pay | Online payments | Verifone Developer Portal documentation.

       To enable the ApplePay wallet with Mobile SDKs check the  Apple Pay | Online payments | Verifone Developer Portal  information.
  2. Generate a unique merchant_reference.

    The merchant_reference needs to be unique to identify the shopper when they are redirected to your server by Apple Pay. In the next step, you will be creating a transaction through the API, the transaction will return an id that needs to be stored safely with the reference. When the shopper returns, you can use this reference to confirm either through the webhook or through the GET transaction API call if the shopper has successfully completed the transaction.

  3. Required fields.

Web Integration

An Apple Pay web integration consists of implementing both client side and server side components. You will need to implement the following:

Code sample

const ApplePaymentOptions = {
  countryCode: "US",
  currencyCode: "USD",
  merchantCapabilities: ["supports3DS"],
  supportedNetworks: ["visa", "masterCard", "amex", "discover"],
  total: {
    label: "Demo (Card is not charged)",
    type: "final",
    amount: "1.99",
const canMakePayments =
  window.ApplePaySession && window.ApplePaySession.canMakePayments();
let session;
function handleApplePayRequest(formValues) {
  if (canMakePayments) {
    session = new window.ApplePaySession(3, ApplePaymentOptions);
    session.onpaymentauthorized = makeTransaction(formValues);
    session.addEventListener("validatemerchant", validateMerchant);
    console.log("INFO - BEGIN SESSION...");
function validateMerchant(e) {
  // Pass the validation URL and domain to your server to make the wallet transaction API call
  fetch(`YOUR_ENDPOINT`, {
    method: "POST",
    headers: REQUEST_HEADERS,
    body: JSON.stringify({
      validation_url: e.validationURL,
      domain: window.location.hostname
    .then((res) => res.json())
    .then((sessionObject) => {
    .catch((err) => console.log("ERROR - MERCHANT VALIDATION: ", err));
function makeTransaction(formValues) {
  return (e) => {
    const applePaymentObject = e.payment;
    const payload = {
      token: applePaymentObject.token.paymentData,
    // Pass the apple pay token to your server to make the wallet transaction API call
    fetch(`YOUR_ENDPOINT`, {
      method: "POST",
      headers: REQUEST_HEADERS,
      body: JSON.stringify(payload),
      .then((res) => res.json())
      .then((res) => {
        // Check the response status and complete the payment session
        if (res.status === 'AUTHORIZED') {
      .catch((err) => console.log("ERROR: ", err));
