Once chosen, these fields become mandatory. The payment gateway configuration is now complete.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) 

1. Why is Apple Pay not available as a payment option if I have integrated Chargebee Checkout using the Drop-in Script?

Apple Pay is not supported with the Chargebee Drop-in Script because it uses iframes. Instead, Apple Pay is available only when using Chargebee Checkout via Checkout URL  or API-based integration , which opens the checkout page in a separate tab or browser window.

Additionally, Apple Pay works only on iOS devices or when using the Safari browser on macOS. Ensure you are using one of these options during checkout. Apple Pay will not be available if you use a non-iOS device or a different browser.

2. What happens if I choose the billing/shipping address as mandatory but the customer fails to provide it in their Apple wallet?

If the billing/shipping address is mandatory and the customer did not provide it in their Apple wallet, they will be prompted to enter it during checkout and proceed.

3. Will changing my site's domain have any impact on enabling Apple Pay in Stripe?

Yes, since your site's URL is registered in Stripe, a change in the domain will impact the setup. Contact support  in such cases to get the new domain registered.

4. I'm setting up Custom Domain for checkout pages after setting up Apple Pay, what should I do?
