Benevity and Apple Pay

Apple Pay provides nonprofit organizations a simple and secure way to accept donations from within their app and website. Similar to using Apple Pay to buy goods and services, users can donate without entering their billing, shipping, or contact details. Benevity assists by vetting causes in our charitable database to determine if they are eligible for Apple Pay.

Getting Started

To accept donations with Apple Pay, your organization will need the following:


Implementing Apple Pay to accept donations is similar to implementing Apple Pay to sell goods and services within your app or website. The account configuration, implementation process, and review guidelines are the same. The only additional steps are to get your nonprofit organization approved to accept donations with Apple Pay and to use the "Donate with Apple Pay" button.

Submitting for Approval

To register your nonprofit organization for Apple Pay, visit the Benevity Causes Portal. You’ll be asked to provide basic information about your organization as well as your Apple Developer Team ID, which you can find in the Membership section of your developer account. Once approved, you’ll be notified by Apple and you’ll be able to submit your app to the App Store for review or publish your website.
