Company Updates Circle APIs

As of April 2023, Apple Pay functionality for Circle customers is being discontinued. Learn more about our latest announcements, including Circle’s Executive Insights, the State of the USDC Economy, and How the USDC Reserve is Structured and Managed.

We’re excited to announce that eligible businesses who build with Circle can now help further boost their sales by accepting Apple Pay — an easy, secure, and private way to pay. Customers can quickly checkout using the devices they carry every day. Apple Pay is also a safer and faster way to pay using the Safari browser and in apps because customers will no longer have to create an account or fill out lengthy forms.

This can be especially powerful for crypto-native businesses, since it can help them create stronger connections with customers who want to pay using more traditional methods and even enable them to buy crypto with Apple Pay on their preferred exchange. In fact, Apple Pay and Circle’s Payments solution make it possible for crypto-native businesses to accept payments from customers who don’t use crypto at all. NFT marketplaces, crypto gaming, crypto exchanges, crypto wallets and cross-border remittance providers can help their business grow by making checkout easy with Apple Pay and Circle. 

Traditional businesses can also take advantage of this enhancement to shift more retail payments to digital currency and experience the benefits of USDC settlement. 


How to get started

Enabling Apple Pay takes only a few steps. First, eligible businesses can open a free Circle Account and create an Apple developer account. Then you can connect to Circle’s Payments solution via easy API integration and begin testing Apple Pay and other payment methods in our sandbox. 

Apple Pay via Circle makes it easy for your customers to pay online and in apps using their iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, and other supported devices. To pay in apps and on websites in Safari on your iPhone and iPad, simply have customers select Apple Pay at checkout and complete the payment using Face ID or Touch ID. It’s that easy.


More payment methods to come

This is just one step on our continued mission to bring the worlds of traditional and digital-native payments even closer together. At Converge22, we announced additional merchant services that will allow vendors to accept payments in cryptocurrencies like Ethereum (ETH) and Bitcoin (BTC), alongside even more features to reduce checkout friction and improve the payments experience. It’s all designed to help businesses unlock the benefits of USDC and connect with customers no matter how they choose to pay. Learn more about the Circle Account here.
