Apple Pay

Let Your Customers pay using their Apple device and Apple Pay

Apple Pay provides an easy and secure way for your customers to buy goods and services such as groceries, clothing, tickets and reservations within your iOS 8 app by using payment information stored in Passbook on your customer’s iOS device.


Using Apple’s Touch ID technology, your customers can authorize payments using the credit and debit card payment credentials stored on their iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. These models contain a Secure Element, isolating card payment credentials from where your mobile app runs.


When a customer makes an Apple Pay "In-App" purchase, the following steps take place before the payment can be completed:

  • virtual terminal The merchant’s app interacts with the Apple PassKit Framework to obtain encrypted payment data.
  • virtual terminal The merchant’s app forwards the order information along with the encrypted payment data to the merchant’s web server.
  • virtual terminal The merchant’s web server sends the encrypted Apple Pay payment data to the gateway using the Mobile SDK, or the Direct Post API.
  • virtual terminal The Planetauthorize payment gateway decrypts the payment data and processes the transaction.


In summary, merchants must obtain the Apple Pay encrypted payment data within their app using PassKit. Once received, the Apple Pay encrypted payment data is then sent to the Planetauthorize payment gateway API for processing instead of actual credit card information.

Billing & Invoicing

Electronic Invoice Manager & QuickBooks® SynPay™

Merchants using Planetauthorize's Electronic Invoicing system generate invoices with line by line detailed information. Invoices are automatically converted to PDFs, attached via email and sent to the customer's billing email address. Customers simply follow a link in the email to pay their open invoices. All invoices are kept within the payment gateway and can be easily retrieved or re-sent with a click of a button. There is no limit to the amount of invoices that can be sent. And, merchants don't need a website to get paid.

With Planetauthorize's QuickBooks® SyncPay™, merchants can process the gateway transaction, create an appropriate accounting entry and automatically mark the transaction as paid without ever leaving the QuickBooks® environment.
