E-commerce site Etsy, which gives independent crafters a place to sell their wares, today announced that it has begun accepting Apple Pay through both its desktop and mobile websites.

Etsy previously accepted Apple Pay within the Etsy app for iOS devices, but with support for Apple Pay on the web, Apple users can pay with Apple Pay using Safari on any supported Mac or iOS device. Etsy is accepting Apple Pay payments in Australia, Canada, France, Hong Kong, Singapore, Switzerland, the United States, and the United Kingdom.

Just as it does in Etsy's iOS app, Apple Pay enables buyers to complete their purchases quickly without needing to add their billing or shipping information at checkout. And as with all other Apple Pay transactions, Apple Pay transactions on the web are encrypted using the mobile wallet on the buyer's device.

To use Apple Pay on the web while shopping on Etsy, buyers simply select Apple Pay at checkout and then authorize the payment using Touch ID following a prompt on their iOS device.

Apple Pay on the web was introduced with iOS 10 and macOS Sierra, giving Apple Pay users an alternative to payment services like PayPal. Since Apple Pay on the web went live, many websites and payment providers have implemented support for the feature, and it is on its way to being widely accepted.

With Apple Pay on the web, purchases made on a Mac are confirmed through a connection to an Apple Watch or an iPhone, with the purchase authorized via Touch ID. On iOS devices, making a purchase using Apple Pay on the web is similar to making a purchase within an app.

Apple Pay on the web requires iOS 10 or macOS Sierra, along with an Apple Pay-compatible device. On Mac, a purchase needs to be confirmed with an iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone SE, or Apple Watch, while mobile web payments are available on the above listed iPhones and the following iPads: iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 4, and all iPad Pro models.
