BigCommerce online merchants are now able to offer Apple Pay as a payment option on the checkout page, the company revealed in a blog post this week.
Previously, merchants could only offer Apple Pay from the cart page or on the quick cart page which bypassed the checkout page but enabled shoppers to quickly place orders on the go.
With this enhancement, Apple is now available as a preferred payment method while in the quick cart popup, on the cart page, and while using the standard checkout flow.
“With Apple Pay available at multiple steps of your store’s shopping process, your shoppers have more access to this popular, frictionless payment option, leading to increased conversion rates,” the company explained in its blog post.
How to Enable Apple Pay in BigCommerce
BigCommerce merchants must first enable Apple Pay in their control panel and then ensure that their store uses the Optimized Single-Page Checkout flow. Once these steps are completed, Apple Pay will automatically appear at checkout on Apple devices, with no additional setup required.
One caveat with using Apple Pay on the checkout page is that previous styling changes that merchants may have made to the Apple Pay button for use in the cart will not apply to the payment option on the checkout page.
