Introducing: Apple Pay with FreshBooks

December 7, 2016


As a small business owner, getting paid can be a major pain point but it is important—it’s what fuels your business. That’s why FreshBooks offers FreshBooks Payments and Stripe, so you can easily get set up and paid quickly.

Now it’s Even Easier for Clients to Pay You Using Apple Pay

With Apple Pay, your clients will be able to pay you even faster than before since they won’t have to fish out a credit card and enter their information.

Apple Pay is a fast, easy and secure payment method for your clients—and it’s already set-up on your account. The Apple Pay button automatically appears on any invoices with FreshBooks Payments or Stripe enabled. If your clients already have Apple Pay set up on their Apple devices, they’ll be able to pay you right away.

How Does it Work?

Apple Pay is a payment method that works seamlessly with FreshBooks Payments or Stripe.

On an iPhone, your clients will see the Apple Pay button at the bottom of their invoice.

All they have to do is tap the button and confirm the payment with Touch ID.

Using the Safari browser on your desktop, the Apple Pay button appears at the top of the invoice. Your client can simply click that button and continue to authorize the payment either from the Touch Bar on their MacBook, their iPhone or their Apple Watch.

Do I Need to Set Anything Up?

If you are already accepting credit cards online through FreshBooks Payments or Stripe you’re good to go. If you aren’t, accept credit cards in seconds with FreshBooks. Set up is easy—here’s how.

What Type of Device Does My Client Need?

To pay with Apple Pay, your client needs to open your invoice on an iPhone running iOS 10+, or through the Safari browser on a MacBook running macOS Sierra (10.12+). If they are paying from their MacBook, they’ll need to either use the Touch Bar, iPhone or Apple Watch to authorize the payment via Touch ID.

Does Apple Pay Only Work in the US?

Right now, only US-based FreshBooks customers have Apple Pay as a payment option on their invoices. Stay tuned for more supported countries.
