Frequently Asked Questions about Apple Pay and QuickBooks
QuickBooks Online, QuickBooks Desktop, and QuickBooks Self-Employed now offer the option for your customers to pay the e-Invoices you send them with Apple Pay.
How do I begin accepting Apple Pay?
All you need is a QuickBooks Payments account. One place to start is from the "Get set up" link at the top of a new invoice. It only takes a few minutes to fill out some information about your business.
Once your account is approved, you'll be able to accept bank transfers, Apple Pay, and cards.
How do my customers pay me with Apple Pay?
First, create an invoice and select Card under Payment Options at the top of the screen. (You should see Apple Pay as one of the card types listed.) Fill out the invoice and send it to your customer. When they open it from their email, they'll be able to use Apple Pay if:
They have Apple Pay set up on their iPhone, iPad, or Mac, and
They view the invoice in Safari, and
They have an active card in their Apple wallet.
Your customer can then tap the Buy with Apple Pay or Apple Pay button and make the payment.
How do I know when someone has paid me?
You'll receive an email confirming the payment and the invoice will be marked as paid within QuickBooks, just like other payment methods we support.
How long does it take for an Apple Pay payment to be deposited?
Your money will be deposited in 2 business days if the transaction is made before 3 PM PT. For example, if your customer pays on Wednesday before 3 PM, you'll get the money on Friday.
Will Refund transaction fees still apply?
Yes, you'll be charged refund fees, based on your pricing agreement.
How do I dispute an Apple Pay transaction?
As a merchant, you shouldn't need to dispute an Apple Pay transaction. If you have unauthorised activity on your account, you would follow the same process regardless of payment type.
How do I handle a chargeback?
We'll notify you if your customer files a chargeback for an Apple Pay card payment, and we'll let you know the next steps.
If my customer pays me with Apple Pay, will my books auto-update?
Yes, a received payment will be created to record the payment. Once the money is deposited in your bank account, you'll see it automatically reconciled.
Where is my money deposited if my customer pays with Apple Pay?
We'll deposit the funds directly into your bank account along with your card and bank transfer transactions.
