Payment Request Support provides the ability for vendors to provide frictionless Payments to their customers.
Apple Pay, Google Pay, Chrome saved cards, and Microsoft Pay are supported.
What is Payment Request?
If you've ever used Apple Pay, Google Pay, Microsoft Pay, or browser-saved cards, then chances are you've already used the Payment Request API.
The Payment Request API provides a consistent user experience for both merchants and users. It is not a new way for paying for things; rather, it's a way for users to select their preferred way of paying for things, and make that information available to a merchant. ~ Mozilla
Why is Payment Request important?
In short, customers will see a “Pay now” button or an Apple Pay button, depending on what their device and browser combination supports. If no option is available, they won't see the button.
Instead, they will be able to enter their card details as normal.
- Apple Pay with the Payment Request Button requires macOS 10.12.1+ or iOS 10.1+.
