Integrating Apple Pay Using Stripe vs. Using Your Own Server-Side Solution

Question

Why should I use Stripe for integrating with Apple Pay when I can do it myself instead?

Answer

Stripe allows you to add Apple Pay to your app or website with a few lines of code.

Integrating Apple Pay manually can be a complicated process. Apple’s documentation notes the work required to setup your own integration: “The alternative is to provide your own server-side solution to receive payments from your app, decrypt payment tokens and interface with the payment provider. Handling credit and debit card payments can be complicated and unless you already have the expertise and systems in place, an SDK from a payment provider is the quickest and most reliable way to support Apple Pay in your app.”
