To add Apple Pay and Google Pay to your store:

  1. From your Ecwid admin, go to the Payment page.
  2. Scroll down to Stripe and click on it. Depending on whether you have a Stripe payment option set up in Ecwid or not, follow the steps below.
  3. (Stripe is set up) If you have already set up Stripe as a payment option, click Set Up Apple Pay and Google Pay.
  4. (Stripe is not set up) If you haven’t set up Stripe, click Connect with Stripe. Then follow the instructions on the Stripe site to give Ecwid access to your Stripe account and complete the setup.

Once you complete the steps, customers will be able to check out with Apple and Google Pay in your store.

Apple Pay and Google Pay for customers

When using Apple Pay, customers don’t have to manually enter their credit card details or shipping info as this is already securely stored on their device. All they need to complete a purchase is to choose Apple Pay at checkout and identify themselves with Touch ID or Face ID. Orders paid with Apple Pay will display the Apple Pay icon in the order details in your Ecwid admin.


The same goes with Google Pay — all payment information is already stored on a customer’s device, so there’s no need to enter credit or debit card details manually. A customer only needs to choose Google Pay on checkout to complete the order:



Why is the Apple Pay button not showing at checkout?

There may be multiple reasons why you don’t see the Apple Pay button in your store. To fix it, try these troubleshooting steps make sure:


  • You use the latest design for your Ecwid storefront. Go to your Ecwid admin → Settings → What’s New and enable storefront updates, if any, to make sure that you use the Next Generation Storefront.
  • Your domain is verified via Ecwid. It’s possible that you verified your website domain in the Stripe account manually instead of verifying it via Ecwid. In this case, the Apple Pay button may show up in your store for a second and then disappear. Here is how to fix it:

    2. Go to your Ecwid admin → Payment → Stripe.
    3. Click Edit next to your domain → Remove.
    4. Click Add domain and follow the wizard to re-add your domain.
