Apple Pay provides a secure and seamless payment method that you can offer in-app, in store, and on the web. Apple Pay uses network tokenization, stores payment information securely in the shopper's Apple Pay eligible device, and confirms the payment through Touch ID or Face ID authentication. If you are implementing in Europe, Apple Pay is PSD2 SCA-compliant.

When the shopper selects Apple Pay, they are presented with a payment sheet where they choose a card and provide contact details and shipping address. Then they are prompted to authenticate the payment through Face ID or Touch ID.

Apple Pay supports liability shift for American Express, Discover, JCB, Mastercard, and Visa cards. For Visa, liability shift occurs depending on the iOS version:

  • Version 16.2 or higher: the liability shift applies globally.
  • Version 16.1 or below: the liability shift applies for transactions with cards issued in Europe.

Adyen does not currently support UnionPay cards through Apple Pay.
