With Apple Pay already available as a payment method on apps including Uber , Apple has announced it is moving online, working to make Apple Pay an option for in-browser payment when using Safari, which it expects to launch later this year.
Apple Pay is finally ready to move beyond apps. Apple has been telling potential partners that its payment service, which lets shoppers complete a purchase on mobile apps with their fingerprint rather than by entering credit card details, is expanding to websites later this year, multiple sources told Re/code. The service will be available to shoppers using the Safari browser on models of iPhones and iPads that possess Apple’s TouchID fingerprint technology, these people said. Apple has also considered making the service available on Apple laptops and desktops, too, though it’s not clear if the company will launch that capability.
