Apple Pay Component

Add Apple Pay to an existing Components integration.

Our Apple Pay Component renders Apple Pay in your payment form. When the shopper selects Apple Pay, the Component 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 Web Components integration. The Web Components integration works the same way for all payment methods. If you haven't done this integration yet, refer to our Components integration guide.

Before starting your Apple Pay integration:

  1. Make sure that you have set up your back end implementation, and created an instance of AdyenCheckout.
  2. Sign up for Apple Pay in your Apple Developer account and submit the merchant identifier and payment processing certificate to our Support Team. For more information and detailed instructions, see Enable Apple Pay.
  3. Register and validate your merchant domain with Apple.
  4. Create a merchant identity certificate.
  5. Add Apple Pay in your test Customer Area.

Show Apple Pay in your payment form

To present the Apple Pay Component in your payment form:

  1. Make a POST /paymentMethods request specifying:

  1. Pass the full response to the paymentMethodsResponse object when creating an instance of the AdyenCheckout.

  2. Add the Apple Pay Component:

    a. Create a DOM element, placing it where you want the Apple Pay button to be rendered:

    <div id="applepay-container"></div>

    b. Create an instance of the Apple Pay Component, specifying:

    • currencyCode: The three-character currency code.
    • amount: The amount of the transaction.
    • countryCode: The two-letter country code of your merchant account.
    • configuration.merchantName: The merchant name that you want displayed on the Apple Pay payment sheet.
    • configuration.merchantIdentifier: Your Apple Merchant ID.
    • onValidateMerchant: Event called when the payment sheet is displayed. For more information, see Apple Pay documentation.
    const appleNode = document.getElementById("applepay-field");
    const applepay = checkout.create("applepay", {
        currencyCode: "EUR",
        amount: 1000,
        countryCode: "DE",
        configuration: {
           merchantName: "Adyen Test merchant",
           merchantIdentifier: "adyen.test.merchant"
        // Button config
        buttonType: "plain", // Optional. The type of button you want to be displayed in the payments form
        buttonColor: "black", // Optional. Specify the color of the button
        onValidateMerchant: (resolve, reject, validationURL) => {
           // Calls your server with validationURL, which then requests a payment session from Apple Pay servers. 
           // Your server then receives the session and calls resolve(MERCHANTSESSION) or reject() to complete merchant validation.

    c. Check whether Apple Pay is available to the shopper. If it is, mount the Component:

        .then(() => {
        .catch(e => {
            // Apple Pay is not available

    Do not mount the Component if Apple Pay is not available to the shopper.
