Activating Apple Pay on WordPress, SquareSpace, or other website systems

This tutorial will show you how to add Apple Pay to your website

Apple Pay requires SSL. This means that in order to accept Apple Pay, you need to have an SSL certificate installed on your website, and your domain needs to be accessible via a URL that starts with https

WIX and Weebly do not support Apple Pay.

WordPress

  1. Download the Fundraise Up Verify for Apple Pay with Stripe WordPress plugin.
  2. Install and activate it on your WordPress website.
  3. Go to Fundraise Up > Settings > Payment Options > Apple Pay
    Untitled (9)
  4. Click Verify Website Ownership
    Untitled (10)
  5. Enter your website main URL as it appears when you browse to the website (e.g. https://www.domain.org)

    Untitled (11)

  6. Complete verification - done!

Some browsers like to shorten web addresses by removing the "www." portion (aka the subdomain), but if you click in the address bar, you should be able to see the full address that you'll need to use for verification. 


Completing site verification will add Stripe’s domain association file for Apple Pay verification to your WordPress site and makes it available at https://<YOUR_SITE_DOMAIN>/.well-known/apple-developer-merchantid-domain-association.

Depending on your WordPress installation, you may need to have custom permalinks enabled (anything but Plain) from Settings => Permalinks in your WordPress dashboard.

If the plugin doesn’t work, make sure the URL is not blocked by your web server and that request is being passed to WordPress.
