Accept Mobile Payments with Apple Pay and Google Pay

This guide explains how you can allow donors to donate quickly from their smartphones using Apple Pay or Google Pay.

Apple Pay and Google Pay allow donors to quickly donate to your fundraisers on their smartphones without manually entering their credit card numbers. Since many donors are likely to find your campaign through their smartphones, having Apple Pay and Google Pay as available payment options can maximize donations. 

Apple Pay and Google Pay are automatically enabled as payment options, so you won’t have to do anything differently to accept your campaign's payments through these methods. With that said, this guide is a helpful resource for anyone who may have questions about donating with them.

Here’s how these options work and how they can be used for your campaigns.


How donors pay with Apple Pay and Google Pay

Donors can use Apple Pay or Google Pay by:

  1. Entering checkout normally from your campaign page
  2. Choosing Apple Pay or Google Pay in the payment section of the checkout
  3. Completing the transaction with one click (no need type out a credit card number).

Note: Donors will need to set up Apple Pay or set up Google Pay on their devices to see these options in the checkout.


Givebacks (formerly MemberHub) will automatically detect what kind of device your donor is using and display Apple Pay or Google Pay options accordingly. 

Apple Pay works with:

  • iPhones
  • iPads 
  • Macs using the Safari web browser

Google Pay works with:

  • Android phones 
  • Chrome web browser
