Now Accepting Apple Pay on the Web at Hover

We’re all about making it easier and faster to register and purchase a domain name at Hover. So when we saw Apple Pay on the web last fall while watching the WWDC livestream, we immediately thought, “We should do that!”

So we did!

Starting today, customers set up with Apple Pay can pay on Hover using Apple Pay on the web. It makes checkout fast and and easy.

Keep in mind that there are some specific hardware and software requirements for Apple Pay on the Web. Apple’s Support site has all the details.

How it works

When you make a purchase, we’ll check with your web browser during checkout and if reports back that it is able to pay with Apple Pay, you’ll see that option in the billing info section. Clicking or tapping the Apple Pay button will cause a payment sheet to be displayed on your iPhone, your Apple Watch or on your MacBook (if you have one of the sweet new ones with Touch ID and Apple Pay built in).

All you’ll need to do is to authenticate by using the Touch ID sensor, or via your Apple Watch, and you’re all set. There’s no need to type in or provide your payment info, address, etc. It’s quick and easy and most of all, very secure.

You can also change to use Apple Pay for your renewals or future payments by updating your payment information in your account settings. It works the same way; if we detect Apple Pay on the web is supported, we’ll offer you that option.

For customers who don’t have Apple Pay, Hover accepts payment via PayPal, VISA, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and JCB.

Here’s a video showing our Apple Pay integration in action.
