In 2017, Apple launched Apple Pay in Ireland. Adverts.ie was one of the first companies to partner with them on this product.
What can I pay for with Apple Pay?
You can use Apple Pay for the following on the Adverts.ie iPhone app:
1: Paying for "Buy Now" items from most shops.
2: Listing a Premium or Priority ad.
3: Paying for a Premium or Priority bump on one of your ads.
4. Listing an ad in the motor section.
How do I set up Apple Pay?
To set up Apple Pay, just go to the App Store and download the Apple Pay app. Open the app, add your card and you're all set. Then, anywhere you see the Apple Pay logo, you'll be able to use it.
For now, only customers of AIB, KBC ( only Mastercard), Ulster Bank and Boon by Wirecard will be able to use Apple Pay.
I am a shop, how do I accept Apple Pay?
Apple Pay uses the same payment tool as credit and debit cards - Stripe. Once you have Stripe set up on your shop, buyers will be able to use Apple Pay to buy items from you.
Apple Pay payments show up in your Stripe account, just like credit and debit card payments.
There is currently no way to accept Apple Pay without having Stripe enabled.
