Apple today announced that Apple Pay will be coming to Safari on the newly-unveiled macOS Sierra platform. When shopping online on participating websites, users will be able to click a "Pay with Apple Pay" button and authenticate a purchase through an iPhone and even an Apple Watch.

Users love to shop online using their Macs and with macOS the shopping experience in Safari is now even better. Apple Pay on the web makes it easy to make secure and private purchases when shopping on participating websites. You no longer need to share credit or debit card numbers with an online merchant and actual card numbers are not stored on your device, nor on Apple servers.

During its keynote presentation, Apple said that many merchants have already agreed to include Apple Pay on the web, with more expected to launch down the line. From a security angle, Apple promised that Apple Pay on macOS is as strong and encrypted as it is on mobile, thanks to the fact that you no longer have to store credit or debit card information in a browser.

Who uses safari?
I use it quite often. Most of my friends with iDevices and/or Macs do.

Too bad it still needs specific retailers to support it. Would have been nice to be able to use AP with any website, even ones like Amazon that have competing services.
Yeah, it would be universally usable to simply have it generate an account number and one-time CVV we could paste in or something.

Instead, this is not much different than the way that sites have to deliberately support Paypal or Google Wallet.

Ah well, it's the age of multiple methods, I guess. Just look at all the "sharing" icons that each website has to support these days, from Twitter to Facebook to Google+ to whatever.

Will AP only work on safari for Mac? How about safari on iOS?
According to this Apple web page ('https://developer.apple.com/apple-pay/'):

"With the release of macOS and iOS 10, Apple Pay is coming to Safari on your Mac, iPhone, and iPad. "
