Enabling Apple Pay

Prerequisites

To enable Apple Pay, you need to verify that you control the domain where it will be used. This requires having the ability to upload files to your web server.

Step 1: Enable Apple Pay from Fundraise Up

To enable Apple Pay, begin by enabling it from the Payment methods page of your main Dashboard settings.

  1. Go to the Fundraise Up Dashboard.
  2. Click your name in the top-right corner and then Settings.
  3. Click Payment methods in the left-hand menu, and click on Apple Pay.
  4. Click Enable Apple Pay.

Step 2: Verify your domain with Apple

To use Apple Pay, you need to register all of your web domains that will show the Apple Pay button with Apple. This includes both top-level domains (for example, ”mycharity.org”) as well as the subdomains (for example, ”donate.charity.org”), as well as the domain used.

You can find some platform-specific instructions on how to verify your domains here:

If your website isn’t hosted on any of these platforms, follow these instructions:

  1. Place this domain association file in the /.well-known/ directory. The full path to the file will be https://mycharity.com/.well-known/apple-developer-merchantid-domain-association (where mycharity.com is your organization’s site).
  2. Next, return to the Apply Pay page in your Fundraise Up settings and click the Verify website ownership button. This tells Fundraise Up to register your domain with Apple.
  3. After registering all your domains, you can present Apple Pay as a donation option in your Checkout modals and Campaign Pages.
Do not remove the domain association file after verification. to ensure continued Apple Pay functionality.

Requirements to display Apple Pay in Checkout

Supporters will only see Apple Pay if all the criteria are met for their device.

Safari on Mac

  • Safari on Mac running macOS Sierra or later.
  • A compatible device with a card in its Wallet paired to your Mac with Handoff, or a Mac with TouchID. Instructions can be found on Apple’s Support site.
  • A Checkout form on a domain that has been verified with Apple Pay (as laid out in step 2).

Safari on iPhone and iPad

  • Mobile Safari on iOS 10.1 or later.
  • A card in a supporter’s wallet.
  • A Checkout form on a domain that has been verified with Apple Pay (as laid out in step 2).

As of iOS 16, Apple Pay might work in some non-Safari mobile browsers with a card saved in your Wallet.

Incompatible website builders

Some website builders do not support the domain verification step required to enable Apple Pay. Some website builders that we know to be incompatible with Apple Pay activation are Wix, Shopify, Weebly, and Zoho Sites.
