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.

Enable Apple Pay

Apple Pay is enabled from the Payment options page of Dashboard Settings.

Domain verification

To use Apple Pay, you need to register with Apple all of your web domains that will show an Apple Pay button. This includes both top-level domains (for example, charity.org) and subdomains (for example, donate.charity.org).

Verification steps

  1. Download this domain association file and host it at /.well-known/apple-developer-merchantid-domain-association on your site.
  2. Next, tell Fundraise Up to register your domain with Apple. You can do this by going to the Apple Pay page in Dashboard Settings and selecting the Verify website ownership button.
  3. After registering your domains, you can present Apple Pay as a donation option in Checkout.
