How can we improve WooCommerce?

Add Apple Pay support to WooCommerce

It's clear that Apple Pay is going to be a must-have for our web stores.

Please add support for Apple Pay to WooCommerce ASAP.

Thanks!

    Hey guys, can you PLEASE catch up with this development?

    By you guys not supporting the latest payment methods small businesses suffer, and we're considering moving to Shopify who actually implements this stuff on time.

    I don't want to move to Shopify, but I can't stay on WooCommerce if you guys aren't implementing this simple payment platform.

    Hi Karyn,

    I really wasn't intentionally being patronizing at all. I'm really sorry my comment came across this way, to you. That said, there's no need to make this personal, or take such a harsh and personal approach in your responses.

    It is important to note that we cannot always state the exact status of a project, due to certain discussions being in progress, and an ETA which may potentially change.

    The facts (as you requested), are that we're working on Apply Pay support, and have made significant and noteable progress. There are a few unavoidable items we need to ensure are addressed before launching this feature, which has taken longer than anticipated.

    That is where we stand on this project, today. I appreciate your passion for this project, and we all very much appreciate your feedback.

    We'll be sure to keep this thread updated with each of our movements on this project, and will update here as well once this is released.

    Thanks and regards,
    Matty Cohen.

    Matty,
    Don't patronize me. there is a distinct difference between feelings and facts... and taking the "I'm sorry you feel that way," approach to someone placing facts in front of you is you being a dick. Woocommerce and Automattic ARE behind - grossly behind, and consistently offer nothing more than "just sit tight," and excuses, while your competition has already implemented the technology, and the payment processor itself has already made the function available. So one of two things are at play here: you've hired amateur programmers and need to re-evaluate your hiring criteria OR you all legitimately think the way to keep your customer base is to be the last platform to adopt new technologies. The fact that Black Friday passed without this technology being implemented is telling of the future of Woocommerce. Maybe Automattic should have left Woo alone instead of clearly taking on more than it can handle.

    Can you confirm that since apple pay is already working with Stripe that if I get stripe it should also work with woocommerce?

    Hi Karyn,

    I'm really sorry to read that you feel this way.

    As can be seen by this idea's activity, and it's status, this is an actively developed idea, which we're making some really great progress towards.

    I trust you'll recognise that an idea of this nature, especially given the short life-span of Apple Pay for Web thus far, is one we've made significant progress towards since the Apple Pay for Web announcement.

    I'd advise keeping an eye on your inbox and the WooCommerce blog, for the latest on this idea as it progresses.

    Thanks and regards,
    Matty Cohen.

    In December the new Macbook Pros with Touch ID will be available if WooCommerce can't support Apple Pay before then this will be a huge loss for anyone using WooCommerce for the upcoming holiday as other platforms have been supporting Apple Pay for a while now.

    It's really time for me to dump WooCOmmerce and advise others to do the same. Once again, behind on the cutting edge of things. What a disappointment.

  • Jonathan Sciabica commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I emailed Woo asking if ApplePay could be currently implemented. Here is their response:

    "At this time, no. However, this is something that is actively being developed and is in the early testing stages. Once it's ready to go, I would expect that will be announced on our blog https://woocommerce.com/blog/ so you may want to keep an eye on that."

    A revolutionary new way to pay online comes out and one of the top e-commerce platforms is silent while other top competitors jump on it day one... :(
