Apple Pay is a new easier way to pay on the web. Unlike paying with a physical card, using Apple Pay in stores happens in seconds with your iPhone and Apple watch. All your clients have to do is hold their iPhone near your reader with their finger on touch ID, or double click on the side button on their Apple watch and their payment process happens with just a touch. This will also work on any device that supports Touch ID, including the new Macbook Pro as well as any future devices that Apple releases. It’s quicker, easier and more secure than ever. Apple Pay has certain requirements you should review before installing into your store.
The documentation for Apple Pay that we’ll be going over today can be found on our website at http://docs.miva.com/. Simply come over to “How to Guides,” click on the icon and you'll see the very first link under 9.6 resources will be Apple Pay. We’ll also list the link down below to install Apple Pay. You can simply click on the Payment Icon in your Admin, or you can go up to Menu, scroll down to “Payments,” click on “Add/Remove Modules” and look for the Apple Pay module under “Available Modules.”
Before you install Apple Pay, Apple Pay does have some limitations to sites that can use their software. If you follow the link to their guidelines you'll see that there are certain sites that may not incorporate Apple Pay into their website. This includes any websites that offer transactions involving:
If your site does not offer any of these then you can switch back over to your admin and go ahead and click the install button. Once you've installed Apple Pay you'll see the screen refresh and a message that Payment Settings have been updated. You'll see that there's a new Settings tab under the Payment Settings section. If you scroll down to the bottom of the page, you'll see a new tab called Apple Pay Payment Networks. Apple Pay accepts the following cards: American Express, Discover, Mastercard and Visa. By default, the Payment Gateway settings are set to automatic, however, if you wanted to you could map to a different Payment Gateway. It's important to remember that currently Apple Pay only supports two payment gateways; Authorize.net and Braintree, so you need to be using one of these two gateways to use Apple Pay. If you don't have one of these payment gateways, nothing would show up here and you just see a message saying “Not supported on our store.” We’re using Braintree and it automatically mapped it for us. If we also had Authorize.net and we wanted to select that, we could manually map it here. However, most people will only have one Payment Gateway, so leaving the settings to Automatic should work for most. That's how to configure Apple Pay through the Admin.
