To initiate Apple Pay as a payment method, you will first need to verify your organization with Apple. Apple has teamed up with Benevity* to verify and approve nonprofit organizations. Verification and approval can take several days. Unfortunately, this process is out of our control.
Information needed to complete the approval process:
- Organization EIN and contact information
- All domains where you would like to make Apple Pay available
- You may be asked to provide an
Apple Developer Team Id. If so, please enter
Process: What to expect
If you do not have a Benevity account, you may be asked to create a new account with Benevity before your organization can be verified.
If you already have a Benevity account and are approved, you will receive an email from Apple, notifying you of your approval. Once you receive this approval email, please alert your technical engineer who can activate Apple Pay in your platform.
The approval email from Apple contains additional instructions, that are not relevant to activating Apple Pay with Funraise - all you need to do is notify Funraise when you receive approval from Apple 👍
Adding additional domains
Once you have a Benevity account and have been approved for Apple Pay, you can add additional domains through your Benevity profile.
*What is Benevity?
Benevity is a platform used by major corporations and nonprofit organizations to manage social responsibility programs, corporate matching, and more. For the purposes of Apple Pay, Benevity is providing a verification service for onboarding nonprofit organizations and new domains to Apple Pay.
