  1. Select Identifiers from the left panel -> Select your APP ID -> Click on Continue and submit.
    (Note: Make sure that you select the Explicit App ID because if it isn’t, the wildcard App IDs won’t be able to make payments with Apple Pay.)
  2. Now select merchant IDs from the dropdown menu.

  1. Click on + -> Select merchant ID -> Continue -> Add description -> Identifier (Use reverse-domain name style e.g – your app identifier is then use

  2. Open wallet app on device -> Click on + icon from right corner -> Add your test card details. After completion, it will be shown on the wallet app home screen.
  3. FPAN: 5204 2477 5000 1471

    Click Choose File.
  7. In the dialog that appears, select the certificate request file (a file with a .certSigningRequest file extension), then click Choose.
  8. Click Continue and then click Download.
Step 7: Enable apple pay in the project
  1. Open project in Xcode -> Go to Targets -> Signing & Capabilities -> Click on + -> Apple pay -> Merchant ID will be shown here -> make sure the left side checkbox is selected.
Step 8: Set account details into project files.
  1. Add below details as global values into your project.
    static let kClientKey = "5qwhb******************************************************43NsN"
    static let kClientName = "9r********5A"
    static let kClientTransationKey = "2w************7t"
    static let kValidationMode = "testMode" // liveMode
    static let kPaymentMode = AcceptSDKEnvironment.ENV_TEST //AcceptSDKEnvironment.ENV_LIVE
    static let kAuthorisedAPI = "" //
    static let ApplePayMerchantID = ""
    Step 9: Add apple pay code into the desired file.
  2. Add a button into the storyboard and connect it with the outlet.

@IBOutlet weak var btnApplePay: UIButton!

  1. Import PassKit framework into swift file.

import PassKit

  1. Mention supported card types
var SupportedPaymentNetworks = [, 

PKPaymentNetwork.cartesBancaires, PKPaymentNetwork.cartesBancaires, 


PKPaymentNetwork.eftpos, PKPaymentNetwork.electron, 

PKPaymentNetwork.elo, PKPaymentNetwork.idCredit, 

PKPaymentNetwork.interac, PKPaymentNetwork.JCB, 

PKPaymentNetwork.mada, PKPaymentNetwork.maestro, 

PKPaymentNetwork.masterCard, PKPaymentNetwork.privateLabel, 

PKPaymentNetwork.quicPay, PKPaymentNetwork.suica,, PKPaymentNetwork.vPay]
Step 10: Add Button action for .touchUpInside.
@IBAction func btnApplePayTapped(_ sender: UIButton) {
//MARK: Checks apple pay is supported on current device or not
if PKPaymentAuthorizationViewController.canMakePayments() == false {
let alert = UIAlertController(title: "Apple Pay is not available", message: nil, preferredStyle: .alert)
alert.addAction(UIAlertAction(title: "OK", style: .cancel, handler: nil))
return self.present(alert, animated: true, completion: nil)
//MARK: checks apple pay is available then opens wallet app
if PKPaymentAuthorizationViewController.canMakePayments(usingNetworks: supportedNetworks) == false {

let tempDict = cartDetailsFetch?.value(forKey: "data") as! Dictionary <String, Any>
var totalPay : NSDecimalNumber?

let request = PKPaymentRequest()
request.currencyCode = "USD"
request.countryCode = "US"
// Set your apple pay merchant id
request.merchantIdentifier = Constants.ApplePayMerchantID
request.supportedNetworks = SupportedPaymentNetworks
// DO NOT INCLUDE PKMerchantCapability.capabilityEMV
request.merchantCapabilities = PKMerchantCapability.capability3DS

//MARK: pass total value and currency code to apple payment request
request.paymentSummaryItems = [
PKPaymentSummaryItem(label: "Total", amount: totalPay as! NSDecimalNumber)

let applePayController = PKPaymentAuthorizationViewController(paymentRequest: request)
applePayController?.delegate = self

self.present(applePayController!, animated: true, completion: nil)

//MARK: opens wallet app
func openWalletApp() {
let library = PKPassLibrary()

//MARK: encrypt data and returns encrypted string
@objc func base64forData(_ theData: Data) -> String {
let charSet = CharacterSet.urlQueryAllowed

let paymentString = NSString(data: theData, encoding: String.Encoding.utf8.rawValue)!.addingPercentEncoding(withAllowedCharacters: charSet)

return paymentString!

Step 11: Add PKPaymentAuthorizationViewControllerDelegate method(s)
func paymentAuthorizationViewController(_ controller: PKPaymentAuthorizationViewController, didAuthorizePayment payment: PKPayment, completion: (@escaping (PKPaymentAuthorizationStatus) -> Void)) {
print("paymentAuthorizationViewController delegates called")
// completion(PKPaymentAuthorizationStatus.success)
print("Payment method data : \(payment.token.paymentMethod.description)")
print("Payment method data : \(payment.token.paymentData.description)")
if payment.token.paymentData.count > 0 {
let base64str = self.base64forData(payment.token.paymentData)
let message = String(format: "Data Value: %@", base64str)
let alert = UIAlertController(title: "Authorization Success", message: "", preferredStyle: .alert)
alert.addAction(UIAlertAction(title: "OK", style: .cancel, handler: nil))
//call api
CallCreateCustApplePayProfile(payment: payment)
} else {
let alert = UIAlertController(title: "Authorization Failed!", message: nil, preferredStyle: .alert)
alert.addAction(UIAlertAction(title: "OK", style: UIAlertAction.Style.default, handler: nil))
return self.performApplePayCompletion(controller, alert: alert)

//MARK: apple payment is finished then this method calls
@objc func performApplePayCompletion(_ controller: PKPaymentAuthorizationViewController, alert: UIAlertController) {
controller.dismiss(animated: true, completion: {() -> Void in
self.present(alert, animated: false, completion: nil)

func paymentAuthorizationViewControllerDidFinish(_ controller: PKPaymentAuthorizationViewController) {
controller.dismiss(animated: true, completion: nil)
print("paymentAuthorizationViewControllerDidFinish called")
Step 12: This method calls request.api payment api for submit the apple pay data
func CallCreateCustApplePayProfile(payment: PKPayment){
let tempDict = cartDetailsFetch?.value(forKey: "data") as! Dictionary <String, Any>
let addressData = UserDefaults.standard.value(forKey: "CheckOutAddress") as? Dictionary <String,Any>
let firstName = addressData!["first_name"] ?? ""
let lastName = addressData!["last_name"] ?? ""
let address1: String = addressData!["addres1"] as! String
let address2: String = addressData!["addres2"] as! String
let addressString = NSString(format: "%@,%@", address1,address2)
let city = addressData!["city_name"] ?? ""
let state = addressData!["state"] ?? ""
let zip = addressData!["pincode"] ?? ""
let country = ""
_ = addressData!["mobile"] ?? ""
let base64str = payment.token.paymentData.base64EncodedString()

print("Data value: \(base64str)")

let totalPay = tempDict["total"] as? String ?? "0.0"

//MARK: Send basic details to api
let savecardJson = "{\r\n \"createTransactionRequest\": {\r\n \"merchantAuthentication\": {\r\n \"name\": \"\(Constants.kClientName)\",\r\n \"transactionKey\": \"\(Constants.kClientTransationKey)\" },\r\n \"transactionRequest\": {\r\n \"transactionType\": \"authCaptureTransaction\",\r\n \"amount\": \"\(totalPay)\",\r\n \"payment\": {\r\n \"opaqueData\":{\r\n \"dataDescriptor\": \"COMMON.APPLE.INAPP.PAYMENT\",\r\n \"dataValue\": \"\(base64str)\" } }, \r\n \"order\" : {\r\n \"invoiceNumber\" : \"\(self.invoiceNo)\", \r\n \"description\" : \"OrderFromiOS\"}, \r\n \"billTo\": {\r\n \"firstName\": \"\(firstName)\",\r\n \"lastName\": \"\(lastName)\",\r\n \"company\": \"\("company")\",\r\n \"address\": \"\(addressString)\",\r\n \"city\": \"\(city)\",\r\n \"state\": \"\(state)\",\r\n \"zip\": \"\(zip)\",\r\n \"country\": \"\(country)\"},\r\n \"shipTo\": {\r\n \"firstName\": \"\(firstName)\",\r\n \"lastName\": \"\(lastName)\",\r\n \"company\": \"\("company")\",\r\n \"address\": \"\(addressString)\",\r\n \"city\": \"\(city)\",\r\n \"state\": \"\(state)\",\r\n \"zip\": \"\(zip)\",\r\n \"country\": \"\(country)\"},\r\n \"customerIP\": \"\(IPAdress)\"}} }"

print("CallCreateCustApplePayProfile payment data : \(savecardJson)")

cachePolicy: .useProtocolCachePolicy,
timeoutInterval: 10.0)
request.httpMethod = "POST"
//request.allHTTPHeaderFields = headers
request.httpBody = jsonData as Data
request.timeoutInterval = 60

let session = URLSession.shared
let dataTask = session.dataTask(with: request as URLRequest, completionHandler: { (data, response, error) -> Void in
if (error != nil) {
print(error ?? "")
let httpResponse = response as? HTTPURLResponse
print(httpResponse ?? "")
self.aryCreatePayProf = try! JSONSerialization.jsonObject(with: data!, options: []) as! NSDictionary as! [String : Any]
