    Hi,

    1) I want to integrate Apple Pay on my website (so it's a Apple Pay - Web Integration), using the Braintree payment provider, JS as a client side language and Java as a server side language.

     

    I'm having difficulties creating a proper sandbox environment for my Apple Pay implementation Testing.


    Followed the steps from the Apple docs but it seems they are not accurate :


    -says to create a Merchant Id, one for sandbox and one for production (as far as I can see, at the moment of creating those 2, there's no way of telling that you want to use one for the development environment and the other for the production)


    - after that, says to create a Certificate using the Merchant ID created before; if I sign in to my Apple Developer Account, I can see the 'Development' and the 'Production' sections, but when I try to create a sandbox/development certificate, Apple Pay is not available for it, only in the production section (see below images).

     

    Is there a way to create a Sandbox / Development Apple Pay certificate, or are there any other ways to properly test the Apple Pay integration ?

     

    2) I tried creating a sandbox user tester account from iTunes, but when I tried to login on Itunes on my Ipad which I'm using for testing, I get the following error: 'Itunes account creation not allowed. This Apple ID cannot be used with the Itunes Store at this time. Please try again later.' (I already verified my Apple ID and followed all the steps to activate the account, but without any success)

     

    3) As I was trying to create Sandbox Apple Pay certificates I mistakenly created 2 for the production environment. Could I revoke them without any problems and create another ones ?

     

    If you integrated Apple Pay on the WEB, I would highly appreciate any help, since I'm having such difficulty in simply setting up my testing environment. 

     

    Thanks  :)

  • Hi Andreea,

    Please find my answers below:

    Is there a way to create a Sandbox / Development Apple Pay certificate, or are there any other ways to properly test the Apple Pay integration ?
    - The certificate can be created from Apple Developer portal, but you need a CSR for that. You can download the CSR from the Braintree Portal. Navigate to Settings->Processing-> Accept Apple Pay-> Enable it-> Download the CSR from there. Now upload this CSR on Apple portal-> Generate the certificate->Download it and upload it to braintree portal. It will be linked to the merchant id.

    2) I tried creating a sandbox user tester account from iTunes, but when I tried to login on Itunes on my Ipad which I'm using for testing, I get the following error: 'Itunes account creation not allowed. This Apple ID cannot be used with the Itunes Store at this time. Please try again later.' (I already verified my Apple ID and followed all the steps to activate the account, but without any success)

    - Signout from iTunes and from iCloud both from iPhone. Then use the sandbox testing account to login into iCloud. You will be able to login successfully.

    3) As I was trying to create Sandbox Apple Pay certificates I mistakenly created 2 for the production environment. Could I revoke them without any problems and create another ones ?

    - Yes you can revoke them easily.

    Let me know if you face any other issues.
