Apple Pay

Power your shoppers with Apple Pay - easy, secure, and seamless

Apple Pay is a digital wallet technology that enables shoppers to make seamless payments using compatible devices at a physical store, in-app or on the web. Shoppers can power through the checkout process using just a Touch ID or Face ID to authenticate the transaction, which is PSD2 SCA compliant (specific to EEA). There is no additional cost to offer Apple Pay as a payment method and it also provides liability shift.

Shoppers store their cards and billing address information on the Apple Pay wallet. You can retrieve both card and delivery information from the Apple Pay wallet once the shopper authenticates payment using Face ID and Touch ID on a payment sheet.

Apple Pay is available for most issuing banks and countries making it one of the fastest growing payment methods. Apple Pay as a payment method works seamlessly with other Airwallex features such as Recurring payments, Platforms or Marketplaces, etc.
