Apple Pay Drop-in integration

Add Apple Pay to an existing Drop-in integration.

Our iOS Drop-in renders Apple Pay in your payment form. When the shopper selects Apple Pay, Drop-in invokes the payment sheet, where shoppers select the card they want to use, provide contact details and shipping address, and then authenticate the payment through Face ID or Touch ID.

Before you begin

This page explains how to add Apple Pay to your existing iOS Drop-in integration. The iOS Drop-in integration works the same way for all payment methods. If you haven't done this integration yet, refer to our Drop-in integration guide.

Before starting your Apple Pay integration, you need to:

  1. Make sure that you have set up your back end implementation, and added Drop-in to your payment form.
  2. Enable Apple Pay with your own certificate.

Show Apple Pay in your payment form

After you have finished enabling Apple Pay, you can show Apple Pay in your payment form:

  1. Drop-in uses the countryCode and the amount.currency from your /paymentMethods request to show the available payment methods to your shopper. From your server, make a /paymentMethods request specifying:

  2. When creating an instance of Drop-in, include the required configuration for Apple Pay.

    Create a configuration object for Apple Pay:

    // Import this to use the PKPaymentSummaryItem class
    // See documentation
    import PassKit
    //Submit the payment details here, including the amount, currency, and country code
    let payment = Payment(amount: Amount(value: 15000, currencyCode: "EUR"),
                      countryCode: "NL")
    // A set of line items that explain recurring payments, additional charges, and discounts.
    // See Apple Pay documentation for sample values.
    let summaryItems = [
                     PKPaymentSummaryItem(label: "Jeans", amount: 98.99, type: .final),
                     PKPaymentSummaryItem(label: "Bag", amount: 55.46, type: .final),
                     PKPaymentSummaryItem(label: "Discount", amount: -4.45, type: .final),
                     PKPaymentSummaryItem(label: "Total", amount: 150, type: .final)
    // See Apple Pay documentation                 
    let merchantIdentifier = "{YOUR_MERCHANT_IDENTIFIER}"
    let applePayConfiguration = ApplePayComponent.Configuration(summaryItems: summaryItems,
                                                            merchantIdentifier: merchantIdentifier)

    Assign the Apple Pay configuration object you created to your instance of Drop-in:

    dropInConfiguration.applePay = applePayConfiguration

For more information on iOS Drop-in classes, see our reference documentation page.

Make a payment

When the shopper proceeds to pay, Drop-in invokes the didSubmit method which contains data.paymentMethod. On the app, Apple Pay shows a loading page and waits to be informed when the payment has been completed.

  1. Pass data.paymentMethod to your server.
  2. From your server, make a /payments request, specifying:

    • paymentMethod: The data.paymentMethod from the didSubmit event from your client app.
    curl \
    -H "x-API-key: YOUR_X-API-KEY" \
    -H "content-type: application/json" \
    -d '{
      "{hint:data.paymentMethod from didSubmit}paymentMethod{/hint}":{
        "applePayToken": "QWIwMmI0YzAhQlFBQkFnQjMv.."
    # Set your X-API-KEY with the API key from the Customer Area.
    adyen =
    adyen.api_key = "YOUR_X-API-KEY"
    response = adyen.checkout.payments({
      :amount => {
        :currency => "EUR",
        :value => 1000
      :reference => "YOUR_ORDER_NUMBER",
      :paymentMethod => {
        :type => "applepay",
        :applePayToken => "QWIwMmI0YzAhQlFBQkFnQjMv.."
      :merchantAccount => "YOUR_MERCHANT_ACCOUNT"
    // Set YOUR_X-API-KEY with the API key from the Customer Area.
    // Change to Environment.LIVE and add the Live URL prefix when you're ready to accept live payments.
        Client client = new Client("YOUR_X-API-KEY", Environment.TEST);
        Checkout checkout = new Checkout(client);
        PaymentsRequest paymentsRequest = new PaymentsRequest();
        String merchantAccount = "YOUR_MERCHANT_ACCOUNT";
        Amount amount = new Amount();
        ApplePayDetails applePayDetails = new ApplePayDetails();
        PaymentsResponse paymentsResponse = checkout.payments(paymentsRequest);
    // Set your X-API-KEY with the API key from the Customer Area.
    $client = new \Adyen\Client();
    $service = new \Adyen\Service\Checkout($client);
    $params = array(
      "amount" => array(
        "currency" => "EUR",
        "value" => 1000
      "reference" => "YOUR_ORDER_NUMBER",
      "paymentMethod" => array(
        "type" => "applepay",
        "applePayToken" => "QWIwMmI0YzAhQlFBQkFnQjMv.."
      "merchantAccount" => "YOUR_MERCHANT_ACCOUNT"
    $result = $service->payments($params);
    #Set your X-API-KEY with the API key from the Customer Area.
    adyen = Adyen.Adyen()
    adyen.client.xapikey = 'YOUR_X-API-KEY'
    result = adyen.checkout.payments({
       'amount': {
          'value': 1000,
          'currency': 'EUR'
       'reference': 'YOUR_ORDER_NUMBER',
       'paymentMethod': {
          'type': 'applepay',

       'merchantAccount': 'YOUR_MERCHANT_ACCOUNT'
    // Set your X-API-KEY with the API key from the Customer Area.
    var client = new Client ("YOUR_X-API-KEY", Environment.Test);
    var checkout = new Checkout(client);
    var amount = new Model.Checkout.Amount("EUR", 1000);
    var details = new ApplePayDetails{
      Type = "applepay",
      ApplePayToken = "QWIwMmI0YzAhQlFBQkFnQjMv.."
    var paymentRequest = new Adyen.Model.Checkout.PaymentRequest
      Reference = "YOUR_ORDER_NUMBER",
      Amount = amount,
      MerchantAccount = "YOUR_MERCHANT_ACCOUNT",
      PaymentMethod = details
    var paymentResponse = checkout.Payments(paymentsRequest);
    // Set your X-API-KEY with the API key from the Customer Area.
    const {Client, Config, CheckoutAPI} = require('@adyen/api-library');
    const config = new Config();
    // Set your X-API-KEY with the API key from the Customer Area.
    config.apiKey = '[API_KEY]';
    config.merchantAccount = '[YOUR_MERCHANT_ACCOUNT]';
    const client = new Client({ config });
    const checkout = new CheckoutAPI(client);
        amount: { currency: "EUR", value: 1000 },
        paymentMethod: {
            type: 'applepay',
            applePayToken: 'QWIwMmI0YzAhQlFBQkFnQjMv..'
        reference: "YOUR_ORDER_NUMBER",
        merchantAccount: config.merchantAccount
    }).then(res => res);

    The response contains the result of the payment.

    /payments response
      "pspReference": "881539337151149C",
      "resultCode": "Authorised"

Present the payment result

Get the payment result from the resultCode that you receive in the /payments response. Because Apple Pay shows a loading page on the app, you need to call the finalizeIfNeeded class to inform Apple Pay that the payment has been completed, and of the payment result.

  1. Determine the result from the resultCode.

    The resultCode values you can receive for Apple Pay are:

    resultCode Description Action to take
    Authorised The payment was successful. Call finalizeIfNeeded(with: true).
    Refused The payment was refused by the shopper's bank. Call finalizeIfNeeded(with: false).
    Ask the shopper to try the payment again using a different payment method.
  2. Call the finalizeIfNeeded class and pass the payment result.

    // Set to true if the payment was successful
    dropInComponent.finalizeIfNeeded(with: true)

    Depending on the values you pass, Apple Pay shows the following on the app:

    • true: Apple Pay informs the shopper that the payment was successful.
    • false: Apple Pay informs the shopper that the payment failed.

  3. Dismiss the Drop-in's viewController.

Recurring payments

To make recurring Apple Pay payments, you first need to create a shopper token and then make subsequent recurring transactions with the token.

Refer to Tokenization for more information and detailed instructions.
