How Can You Add Apple Pay to WordPress?

The easiest way to add Apple Pay to your WordPress site is using WPForms with the Stripe addon.

WPForms lets you make stylish forms without ever needing to know how to code. When you add Stripe as your payment gateway, as you’ll see in this post, you can offer Apple Pay as a payment option.

How To Take Apple Pay Payments in WordPress

Now let’s walk through setting up Stripe in your WPForms account step-by-step so you can accept payments on WordPress through Apple Pay. Here’s a video tutorial that shows the whole process:

Or, if you prefer written instructions, check out the steps below:

Important: The Apple Pay option will only appear in the form for visitors viewing it using Safari from an iOS or macOS device with Apple Pay enabled.

1. Download and Install WPForms

The WPForms homepage

The first thing you need to do on your way to setting up Apple Pay on your WordPress site is to download and install WPForms.

Note that the Stripe payment integration is available in ALL versions of WPForms, including Lite.

However, a Pro license offers added advantages like the removal of the 3% per transaction fee and the Stripe Pro addon for setting up conditional logic for payment fields.

For this reason, we’ll be using the Pro version for this tutorial.

2. Activate the Stripe Pro Addon (Optional)

While this step is optional, we recommend installing the Stripe Pro addon (available in Pro and above licenses) to access conditional logic for the Stripe payment fields.

Once you’ve set up WPForms Pro on your site, you can install addons by navigating to WPForms » Addons from your WordPress dashboard.

Accessing the WPForms addons screen

Next, you’ll see a screen containing all of the addons available.

Scroll down until you locate the plugin, then install it.

When you install the addon, it should automatically activate.

If you’ve previously installed and deactivated the addon, however, you will need to press Activate to continue.

3. Connect Stripe in the Payments Settings

After you’ve installed the Stripe addon in WPForms, you need to connect it to your account.

To do this, you can click on WPForms » Settings from your WordPress dashboard.

Opening the WPForms settings

That will take you to your WPForms account settings. You’ll see several tabs across the top. Select the Payments tab.

The first option you’ll see is the one to set your currency. Choose the currency you want to receive for your payments. For example, if you’re a U.S.-based business, you want to select USD.

Next, because you’ve installed the Stripe addon, you should see where to connect it in your payment settings.

Connect your Stripe account to WPForms

When you click Connect With Stripe, you’ll be prompted to enter your login information and other details needed to connect your Stripe account to WPForms. This is what will allow you to receive payments to your bank account.

When your account is connected, the blue button will become a confirmation.

4. Create Your Apple Pay Form

Now that you’ve set Stripe up with your WPForms account, you can begin creating your form.

To get started, you can either click on WPForms » Add New, or simply click the Add New button at the top of your WPForms dashboard.

Add a new form

After that, you can name your form and decide whether you’re choosing one of our 1,800+ form templates, or if you’re going to start from scratch with a blank form.

Once you’ve done that, you’re ready to drag and drop elements into place in the form builder.

Don’t forget your payment fields! Whether you add specific items with a fixed price or let donors define the amount, you must have at least one payment field like Single Item, Multiple Items, Total, and so on for the credit card field to work in the next step.

5. Add the Stripe Credit Card Field

When your payment form is set up, the last thing to add is the Stripe checkout.

In the form field options, scroll the whole way down until you see the payment fields. From there, select drag and drop the Stripe Credit Card onto your form.

That was easy, wasn’t it?

We have just a few more steps to go.

6. Enable Stripe Payments

After you’ve added a Stripe field to your form, you have to enable payments. This is a very simple but important step.

With your form open, click on the Payments button at the bottom of the left sidebar.

Note that this is different from the payment options you set earlier. This setting is specific to this form only.

Click on Stripe and then use the toggle switch to enable Stripe payments.

When you do that, you’ll see some more options appear. These options are for payment receipt and customer email, and you can map form fields for those.

Receipt and customer email options

It’s a good idea to set up these field mappings if you want Stripe to send a payment receipt to the customer’s provided email address as soon as they submit your Apple Pay form.

7. Embed the Form on Your Site

When your form is finished and you’re ready to start collecting payments, it’s time to embed it on your site.

The easiest way to do this is by using the Embed button in the top right corner of the form builder.

There are a few other ways you can embed forms, as well. This guide on embedding a form on your WordPress site will show you how.

8. Publish Your Form

After you’ve embedded your form on the page or post where you want it to appear and you’ve ensured all the page content is complete, it’s time to publish. Voila! Your form is complete.

Something to keep in mind once your form is live is that you might not see the Apple Pay option. If that happens, don’t panic!

Apple Pay will only appear if you view the form on a device with Apple Pay enabled. This means you might not see Apple Pay on a Windows computer.

But if you use Apple Wallet on your iPhone or other iOS device and have a card saved to use with Apple Pay, you should see it there.

So your customers need to have Apple Pay enabled and be viewing your form from a compatible device and browser in order to see the Apple Pay option appear.

This is true of all the payment methods available with Stripe when customers are using digital wallets.

Next, Put Your Forms to Work With a Side Hustle

Now that you have Stripe connected to your WPForms account and you can accept Apple Pay payments, you can also start earning some extra income. Find out how you can start a side hustle with WPForms.
